Mixing Console

From Wikipedia, Chace Audio

The mixing console (also called an audio mixer or sound board) is an electronic device for combining, routing, and changing the level, timbre and/or dynamics of audio signals. A console can combine analog and/or digital signals. The modified signals can then be summed to produce a combined output.

Modern consoles are made up of channel strips containing input controls, EQ and other signal processing, routing, faders, and output controls. Each input and output channel also has a meter indicating its level. Some mixing consoles include a patch bay or patch panel. Most can add external effects, provide phantom power for microphones, create audible tones via an oscillator, and pan sounds around the sound field. Some can interface with computers or other equipment.

Digital consoles can contain a broad range of functions despite their compact size.
