What is a mixing desk?

A mixing desk, also known as a sound board, audio console, or mixing console, is an electronic device for combining, routing, and changing the level, processing, altering timbre and/or dynamics, etc, of audio signals. 


A mixing desk is used in sound recording, broadcast, live sound reinforcement and sound reinforcement system and consists of three sections, each with its own set of controls: 


• The input section, where audio signals are brought into the mixer 

• The mixing section, where the audio signals are combined and processed 

• The output section, where the processed audio signals are sent out


The input section of a mixing desk is typically made up of several input channels, each with its own gain control and equalisation controls. The mixing section combines the input signals and routes them to the appropriate output. A mixing desk’s output section comprises a number of output channels, each with its own level control.
