The Soundcraft GB-8 (8-bus) 24 Channel Console is packed with the features you need to create a memorable FOH and monitor mix. Combining totally re-engineered circuit topology with the ground-breaking GB30 mic preamp and EQ designs to deliver a sonic performance rivalling many high-end consoles.
The Soundcraft GB8 24 Channel Console has plenty of bus power for sophisticated mixing applications. All eight Aux master controls can be swapped with eight Groups, and all Auxes are pre/post switchable globally per Aux bus from the Master Section.
In addition to the eight Groups, the GB8 has L/C/R and eight Aux busses. Four mute groups provide quick and easy muting of groups of channels, ideal for scene changes or where groups of instruments need to be silenced.
And the output matrix is essential when different zones in a venue require specifically tailored mixes, enabling the operator to create sub-mixes of the Group, L-R mix and C (mono) busses. Unlike other mixers in their class, GB Series consoles are built to last with a rigid steel chassis, high quality vertically mounted fibreglass PCB channel strips and individually nutted potentiometers ensuring reliability in both fixed installations and on the road.
You’ll find an intuitive control surface and a conveniently angled rear connector panel, so you can do all your patching without ever leaving the mix position.
