Intended for installed-sound and Audio-Visual applications that do not require the functionality provided by the GB4 or GB8, the GB2 is available in frame sizes of 16, 24 and 32 mono inputs, each with 2 stereo inputs as standard. Each input features the high-performance GB30 Mic Pre and GB30 Equaliser designs of the GB4 and GB8, along with 6 Aux buses.
Four Subgroups are provided as two stereo pairs, with a unique facility for adjusting the width of the stereo signal across the stereo mix. The channel pan settings are retained on the group outputs, while the degree of stereo separation to the mix bus is independently adjustable from full stereo through to mono.
The GB2 also features two stereo input channels, with separate mic and line inputs. In normal use, the mic inputs are routed to the local channel and the line inputs act as a stereo return to the mix bus. Selecting the LINE input to the local channel overrides the Mic inputs.
The GB2 16+2/4/2 is configured with 16 input channels. 16 inputs feature microphone and line level connections, an additional 2 stereo inputs are also provided. The stereo inputs (STE1 - STE2) provide L/R stereo line level inputs and 3-pin XLR microphone inputs for stereo microphone placement when capturing vocals, instruments, ambiance, etc.
The console features 2 stereo paired group outputs enabling routing to monitors, external recorders, etc. The GB2 series implements Soundcraft's GB30 microphone preamp and EQ, delivering the sonic quality expected of more costly consoles. Additional features include Soundcraft's famed matrix mixer for added routing flexibility and an integrated meter bridge, enabling accurate metering.
