Note: All 2642 connections are on the rear panel however, the rear panel can be removed and relocated to the bottom of the chassis if you prefer to place the mixer in an upright rack. The headphone jack is only on the front. The rear panel connections are 1/4" TR,TRS jacks, the mic inputs are XLRs. The line inputs and main stereo outputs are balanced. The remote Power Supply connector is a locking four‑pin plug.
Functional Overview: The mixer has 8 mono mic/line channels with direct out and insert points, and 4 line‑only stereo channels and 4 general‑purpose stereo channels, for use as returns. So.. 8x1 Mono, 4x2 Stereo, 4x2 Stereo for 24 total channels.
Each of the 8 Mono and 4 Line in Stereo channels have switches for mute or Solo/PFL (pre/post fader level). The Solo/PFL LED indicator is also a peak level warning. These 12 channels all have a three‑band EQs and four aux sends; aux 1,2 are switchable pre/post (as a pair) while aux 3,4 are fixed post‑fade, but can be switched to a further two aux send busses (5,6), again as a pair.
The four general‑purpose stereo channels mainly for use as returns, have no EQ and rout in pairs with two send controls; aux 1 and aux 3. They are furnished with PFL (pre‑fade listen) buttons. Each pair of groups also has a "To Mix" selector, for subgrouping during mixdown.
All channels have short fader level control and separate routing buttons to the stereo buss, group (1,2) and or group (3,4).There are no aux send masters, so effects units with input level controls are an advantage.
The 8 mono and 4 stereo channels have a sweep mid control, while the stereo channels have a fixed mid operating at 1kHz, though neither has an EQ bypass. The cut and boost range is 15dB for all equalizer stages, and the high and low frequency sections shelve at 12kHz and 80Hz respectively. All eight mono channels have a switchable low‑cut filter (100Hz), while the main stereo channels have switchable ‑10V/+4dBu operating levels.
The master section of this 2642 has a single pair of LED bar-graph meters, and a 48V phantom power switch (global). The channel solo system can be switched between Solo and PFL, and each of the six aux send outs has its own PFL button. There's a two‑track feed for recording, and the two track return may be monitored for playback or fed into the main stereo mix. A single level control sets the control room and headphone output level.
The frequency response of the 2642 is flat within +/‑ 1dB from 20Hz to 40kHz, and only drops off by 3dB in the 10Hz to 120kHz range, while the noise figures compare to most other reasonably priced feature rich mixers. Overall, the EQ is musical and positive, with a mid frequency sweep range of 250Hz to 6kHz,more than adequate for most applications.
