The A320 Personal Mixer gives performing and recording musicians simple, intuitive control over their monitor mixes. With many of the features of the award-winning A360 Personal Mixer, the A320 gives musicians the ability to get clear, musical monitor mixes every time they play. Ideal for use with in-ear monitors and headphones, the A320 gives musicians powerful control over their mix, while also preserving the simplicity required for use while performing. The A320 is compatible with all existing and legacy Aviom personal mixing systems.
Musicians are not engineers, and mixing while playing music or singing is very different than just mixing. That's why the A320 is designed with such a clean user interface. No clutter. No menus. Just quick access to the mixing controls you need.
The A320 doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles. By design. Because when you're focused on playing music, bells and whistles can just get in the way. That's why the A320 gives musicians the controls that matter most for adjusting their monitor mix and keeps the rest out of the way.
Each of the 16 mix channels on the A320 can host a mono or a stereo source. That means you can preserve the fidelity of your stereo instruments and submixes from the console without giving up another mix source in your personal mixer. And that translates directly into clearer, more natural sounding monitor and cue mixes.
Good stereo imaging in a monitor mix is essential for hearing every source clearly and distinctly, within the context of the ensemble. It's also an important way to reduce the sense of isolation many musicians experience with in-ear monitors.
Like the A360 Personal Mixer, the A320 allows users to pan both mono and stereo sources. With stereo sources, the Stereo Placement control adjusts both the separation and the position of the source in the mix as a whole. The A320 places all that power in a single control, allowing musicians to make a clear, natural sounding monitor mix with just the simple turn of the knob.
The A320 uses the same master tone filters as the premier A360. They're easy to use—even if you don't know a thing about EQ—and they'll help your in-ear monitors sound their best, no matter what type of music you play.
From the enduring simplicity of the mechanical design to the elegant efficiency of the embedded software, the A320 is built to work when you need it to work and to withstand the abuses of life on stage and in the studio.
The A320 includes space for eight mix presets, so you can save your favorite mixes and get reliable results in your monitors every time you play.
Whether you're adding to an existing Aviom personal mixing system or building a new one, getting up and running with the A320 is a breeze. For older systems, the A320 runs in Pro16 mode, with 16 channels spread across the interface and stereo sources occupying adjacent channel buttons, like on the iconic A-16II Personal Mixer. For systems with more channels, switch the A320 into Pro16e mode to access the full power of its 32-channel mix engine which supports any combination of 16 mono or stereo sources.
