Roland MX-1

The MX-1 Mix Performer is a nexus for all the instruments in your setup. While the unit is capable of mixing a variety of sound sources together and integrating them with its onboard effects, it is far from a traditional mixer. The MX-1 features six line-level inputs, four AIRA USB ports, digital I/O, send/return jacks, and seamless DAW integration that allows for the streaming of 18 individual channels in External mode.

The MX-1 also features a headphone cue, master volume controls, internal effects, and a TR-style step sequencer that allows for intricate rhythmic variations, poly-rhythms, and complex slicing and groove arrangements. All of this plus a plethora of other features make MX-1 the perfect centerpiece to any setup.
