The Comrex ACCESS Portable is a remote broadcast tool that provides utility and portability, but has limited audio I/O built-in. The portable includes one mic/line adjustable input on XLR, one stereo line level input on mini jack, and a headphone and line-level stereo output on mini-jack.
The ACCESS Portable Mixer accessory was designed to address these limitations for applications that require multiple audio I/O for remote broadcasts. The unit "docks" to the ACCESS Portable and expands the audio I/O to five mic/line selectable XLR Inputs and five stereo Headphone Outputs on 1⁄4" jacks.
All ACCESS Portable audio connectors remain active during use of the Mixer, so the total number of Input/Headphone connector pairs increases to six.
- Five Mic/Line level switchable mono inputs on balanced XLR
- Mic inputs offer software selectable 12V phantom power
- Five 1/4" TRS headphone jacks
- Audio level adjustments for input, headphone local and return audio
- Stereo pan pots for channel 1 through 4 to accommodate 2 stereo inputs
- Channel 5 selectable for Producer Mode, which may be heard in all headphones but not on-air
- Ability to monitor ACCESS Portable cellphone input on all head- phones for cueing
- Mixer is powered completely by ACCESS Portable, either from external power supply, or integrated battery
