With 16 channels, the DM16 has more than enough microphone and line inputs to manage a small band or worship team with channels to spare – both on the stage and in the studio. It is also the ideal choice for use as a keyboard or drum sub-mixer for larger scale performances.

Dedicated Stereo Inputs
Dedicated Stereo Inputs

Line channels 13/14 - 15/16 are dedicated stereo channels, making them ideal for stereo instruments, such as keyboards – and can also be used for mono signals thanks to a convenient balance control on each 2-channel grouping. These channels can also be used as return inputs for signals sent external effects processing equipment.
