Maggie Overview


Maggie is a split-design mixer that contains majority of the destinations found in signal flow. Inspired by one of the most common-style mixers seen in small home studios, event halls and most importantly education! When you learn Maggie, you are learning with the most used workflow in education practices.

Below is a Maggie overview with specs and parameters.

Channel Strip


values are determined by the INPUT MODULE selected above the channel strip.

  • The MIC option uses a mic-pre to amplify the signal from 0-60db.
  • The LINE option boosts or reduces from -20db to +40db.

The Aux

Has 6 auxes total on the mixer but the section has 4 knobs on the channel strip. However, the knobs for auxes 3 & 4 could be reconfigured to control the levels of 5 & 6 using the SHIFT button.

By default the auxes are POST fader. For Aux 1 & 2 they can be reconfigured to use PRE FADER.


Has 3 bands (Hi,Mid & Low). The Hi & Lo bands can boost or reduce a fixed frequency while the Mid band is more flexible that it can sweep frequencies.


Not always found as a switch with this category of mixers. At times inserts are routed at the instant a cable in plugged into the insert port. An insert switch is found on the Maggie for ease of use and bypassing insert chains.
