About Samson L1200

The Samson L1200 12-Channel/4-Bus Professional Mixing Console expands on the success of Samson's L series sound reinforcement mixers. The L1200 delivers intuitive mixing and pristine audio quality for small clubs, houses of worship, bars, restaurants and more. A total of 12 input channels provide 8 mono and 2 stereo channels; all with balanced XLR microphone inputs.

Four bus outputs provide flexible routing to monitors, external recording devices, additional mixers, etc. In line with the Samson L series is the USB connection that enables direct audio integration with both Windows and Mac computers. Channel signals may be routed to the USB connection for completely different results between the stereo analog audio signal and USB audio signal.

Additional features include a 24-bit DSP effects processor with up to 100 variable presets and a 9-band graphic EQ for output signal contouring. The L1200 is more than suitable for touring bands, small PA applications, project recording and more.

Questions about this item:

Jose R  How i can get all the sound controle on a computer?
ERIK P  On live boards with a USB output, there is typically a switch that determines whether the USB port is sending or receiving (they might make this distinction by calling it "Playback Monitoring" or something similar). Make sure that your USB port is sending. The port will most likely not be able to send and receive at the same time. From here all you have to do is make sure that your drivers on your computer are up-to-date, check all of your settings on the board and in your recording program to ensure that your recording program and board will communicate properly. The specific parameters for all of your settings should be listed in your manual for your recording program. Once all of that is done, start a project file and plug your instruments and/or microphones into the board. What type of project file (preset templates are listed for you when you start a new project) you choose will be determined by what your needs are for each individual project. You can always choose the "Blank Project" template and create, route, and label each track individually. I'd strongly recommend taking the time to label each of your tracks BEFORE you start recording; it makes things a lot easier when you go to do mixdown. After you've labeled the necessary tracks arm them. There will usually be a "button" on each track that has either "R" or "A" on it. Make sure that button is lit up on each of your desired tracks. On the main control panel of your recording program you'll see the standard play, rewind, fast-forward, stop, and record buttons. Press the record button. Whenever you're ready to start playing, press "Play". There may or may not be a count-in of one or two measures. You can find the controls for that in one of the drop-down menus.
