Shure’s new AuxPander insertable matrix mixer is an auxiliary send expander for mixing consoles. A perfect compliment for standard mixing consoles, the AuxPander increases output capabilities. It lets users turn any mixer into an eight-bus console and is a solution for anyone who suddenly needs more aux sends. In multi-mic sessions, each mic can be separately processed by turning up its associated aux send. The AuxPander is expandable, both vertically and horizontally; connecting two units created an 8×16 or 16×8 matrix. Price: $990.
