Keith McMillen Instruments has introduced the K- Mix BLUE, an 8 in x 10 out digital mixer, USB audio interface and touch sensitive MIDI controller.

The K-Mix BLUE is an updated version of the original K-Mix, introduced at the 2015 NAMM Show. The BLUE edition features upgraded preamps, an updated tactile control surface and a new ABS-Polycarbonate finish.

The K-Mix has a unique design with no moving parts, so it doesn’t have faders that get could scratchy over time, and it can be thrown into a backpack for mobile mixing without worry about damage to control knobs.

“With K-Mix BLUE, we’ve upgraded the classic K-Mix tactile experience and aesthetic”, said KMI President Eric Bateman.  “The finish feels great and will stand the test of time, the preamps are clean even when powered from a laptop, and with full Ableton 11 support, K-Mix is hands down the most versatile audio Swiss army knife out there.”
