Versatile, professional mixer
The GB2R16 delivers professional sound with its GB30 mic pres and GB30 equalizer design – the very same EQs and pres featured on Soundcraft’s acclaimed GB4 and GB8 mixers. You get 16 mono inputs to a stereo mix output with six convenient auxiliary sends, and eight busses that are excellent for smaller installations in your performance venue or church, but equally as ideal for portable PA and broadcast applications. You’ll also enjoy pre/post switchable direct output on every input for recording or effects sends. Plus, the GB2R16 has an internal universal voltage PSU, so you don’t need to worry about any bulky external power supply.
Well-designed cable connector section
You can use your GB2R16 on a table top, or rack-mounted in a 19″ rack, but either way, Soundcraft has you covered for convenient cable access. The entire connector section is contained on a rotatable pod, allowing cable access from the top of the mixer if you have it on a table, or from the rear when it’s rack-mounted!
Built to last
Soundcraft built their reputation on reliable consoles, and that’s what you can expect with the GB2R16. Careful attention has been given to the GB2R16’s mechanical construction: all input modules were constructed with individual vertically-mounted pcbs that were fitted to the steel chassis front panel with individually-nutted pentiometers for overall stronger, more rugged mixer design.
