The Soundcraft Signature 12MTK incorporate Soundcraft's iconic Ghost mic preamps, directly drawn from the company's top-of-the-line professional consoles, to deliver extraordinary audio quality with high headroom, wide dynamic range and exceptional resolution and clarity with a superb signal to noise ratio. They employ Soundcraft's Sapphyre Assymetric EQ for perfectly equalizing every vocal and instrumental element in a mix with the unmistakable musicality inherent in every Soundcraft console, plus the GB Series audio routing technology famous in thousands of live venues worldwide.
It includes a wide variety of built-in Lexicon studio-grade reverb, chorus, modulation and other effects and dbx limiters on the input channels. In addition, the console's multi-track USB audio interface allows any VST/AU/AAX/TDM/RTAS plug-ins to be inserted on any input channel, enabling studio plug-ins to be seamlessly integrated with live performances. Accompanying the consoles are free downloads of the Lexicon MPXL native plug-in and Ableton Live 9 Lite.
The console is designed to deliver pristine recordings. Both have an ultra-low-latency USB interface that flawlessly captures every channel, which can then be mixed or transferred to a DAW for further mixdown and production. The consoles offer XLR and switchable Hi-Z inputs that enable guitars, basses and other instruments to be directly connected.
The Soundcraft Signature 12MTK features smooth, premium-quality faders with GB Series audio routing with flexible pre/post switching on each Aux, and subgroups with powerful routing and switching options as well as dedicated outputs.
Both the Soundcraft Signature 12MTK and Soundcraft Signature 22MTK are built using tour-grade robust metal construction and top-quality components. Both have an internal universal power supply.

Sapphyre British EQ
The Soundcraft Sapphyre console Asymmetric EQ makes both creative and functional tonal shaping of your signal simple and intuitive. The EQ behaves differently in cut and boost, making tonal adjustments musical, and focusing cuts where they are needed. The Soundcraft Signature console uses a special Asymmetric EQ first developed for the renowned Soundcraft Sapphyre console. This EQ makes both creative and functional tonal shaping of your signal simple and intuitive - an EQ that works the way music does.
The shelving bands of the EQ (LF and HF) use a slight boost at the EQ's frequency when cutting, and a slight cut when boosting. For low frequencies, a slight cut when boosting prevents muddiness in he signal, while a slight boost when cutting enables you to clean up the low end without losing precious 'punch' and 'body' of the signal. For the HF shelf, a slight cut when boosting prevents harsh resonance at the EQ's frequency, and a slight boost before a cut can help maintain brightness while reducing HF. The mid-band (bell-shape) has a wide bandwidth (low Q) when boosting, and a narrower bandwidth (high Q) when cutting. The wide boost prevents prevent harsh resonances and tonal-changes that allow for a more pleasing and musical EQ boost. The Narrow cut focuses on problematic frequencies, for getting rid of resonances, rings, hums, and preventing feedback. If this was too wide you could remove too much 'body', creating a thin sound.
The GB Console legacy is in Signature's signal routing. There is pre/post switching for all aux busses, plus flexible routing and dedicated outputs for sub-groups.
