The Soundcraft MH3 is a professional, large format sound reinforcement console that's designed for front-of-house (FOH) and monitor mixing applications. The MH3 is available in 24, 32, 40, 48 and 56 channel frames to accommodate various input needs.
This model is configured with 40 input channels. 40 inputs feature microphone and line level connections, an additional 4 stereo inputs are provided as well. The stereo inputs enable flexible auxiliary routing for monitoring mixing applications. The console features 8 group outputs enabling routing to monitors, external recorders, etc. The MH3 series implements Soundcraft's microphone preamps and EQ section, delivering the sonic quality expected of more costly consoles.
Additional features include a 12 x 4 matrix mixer (expandable to 12 x 8) for added routing flexibility and an integrated meter bridge, enabling accurate metering.
