Peavey PV 20 USB 20 Channel Mixer
At the very top of the PV-series line of mixers is the Peavey PV 20 USB Mixing Console. The amalgamation of the PV line houses all the features of the other PV mixers but goes and extra mile in every possible instance. As far as USB mixers go the PV 20 is an industry stalwart.
As with all other PV-series mixers, this console features built-in DSP effects but the PV 20 also features multiple reverbs, delays and vocal enhancer. The USB port allows for connection to computer soundcards for direct digital recordings through the mixer or digital audio playback to and from the computer. There are inserts on all channels; 2 pre-fader monitor sends and a post-fader effects send; additionally the two stereo channels feature dual assignable line inputs. Like other PV-series mixers the PV 20 USB features Tape-to-Control-Room and Tape-to-Mix Assigns, so the operator can monitor playback through an external stereo signal, instead of using a channel that can be employed by a separate input.
Other features standard on the PV 20 USB include:
• USB port compatible with Mac OSX, Win XP, ME and 2000 connects to computer for recording or digital audio playback
