The Rane MLM 82S features four balanced, studio grade, mono Mic/Line inputs with XLR jacks and 15 VDC phantom power. Each of the four Mic/Line inputs may be assigned to A, A+B or B Outputs. Independent Level/Gain Trim controls and Signal/Overload indicators are provided for each Mic/Line Input. The Phantom Power switch and the Mic/Line switches are located on the back of the unit. Phantom power is removed from any Input set for Line operation.

The Rane MLM 82S also features four stereo line level inputs with 12 dB of line gain. Each Stereo Line input features a recessed Mono switch with indicator and Level control. These inputs may also be used with four Mono A inputs and four Mono B inputs. You get the picture...this mixer is very versatile.

A and B Output Level controls set the master mix level independently for A and B Outputs. The mix amplifiers feature independent overload indicators. To correct any overload condition, the entire mix can be reduced and/or individual Input Levels adjusted. A and B mix Outputs each have an internal switch for padding the output signal to Mic level. The factory default is Line level.

With features like Mic/Line A / A+B / B Assign switches, independent Stereo Line Input Mono switches and additional line gain, the MLM 82S is now one of the most versatile mixers in its class. It is perfect for installations requiring ease of use, compact size, low cost, high performance and security. Applications include, but are not limited too, hotels, churches, conference rooms, schools and rental sound systems. The studio-grade specifications of the MLM 82S allow many other applications such as sub-mixing, recording and post-production.

The Mic/Line Assign switches and independent Mono switches for each of the Stereo Line Inputs make the MLM 82S a true, dual zone capable mixer, i.e., the Outputs may be thought of as two independent zones or a single stereo zone.
