It might not be quite the fortuitous collision of peanut butter and chocolate, but AETA Audio Systems has put together two audio tools into one, the 4Minx multitrack recorder and mixer.
The 4Minx utilizes SDHC cards for recording and can be supplemented by external hard drives via the USB 2.0 port. An Ethernet port provides for file transfer.
Standard features are 48 V phantom power, low-cut filter, analog I/O, 24-bit BWF file recording and AES3 and AES 42 digital inputs (AES 3 output). Additional features include M/S encoding/decoding along with timecode recording and synchronization.
A 3-inch TFT color display provides information and menu choices. Rotary encoders, soft buttons and four programmable buttons provide navigation and operation. It is powered by a DV-type Li-ion battery and has an integrated charger.
