High-quality mic preamps
When designing the MFXi 20, Soundcraft brought excellent components to a truly appealing price. It features the the GB30 mic preamp that Graham Blyth designed expressly for the company's 30th anniversary — the GB30 is the same highly transparent mic preamp used on Soundcraft's larger LX7ii and GB series consoles.

Must-have routing and I/O
When choosing a mixer, the amount of routing possibilities and I/O configurations are essential deciding factors and the MFXi 20 asserts an impressive outfit for its price. it includes two configurable aux sends, two groups, XLR and 1/4" metal jack connector sockets, RCA phono stereo playback inputs and record outputs, 3-band EQ on the two stereo inputs, TRS insert sockets, inserts on all mono outputs, ten-segment LED output metering, and a convenient headphone input. Inside, vertically mounted circuit boards and nutted pots give you premium performance and reliability. This mixer also includes a Kensington lock to keep it secure.

Premium Lexicon effects section
The MFXi 20's set of 24-bit digital effects sets it apart from many mixers in its class. You get two stereo channels and an effects send on each channel — and a whopping 32 effects to choose from. The MFXi 20 uses the same AudioDNA processor featured in many of the Digitech and Lexicon outboard equipment including the highly respected Lexicon MX400. Enjoy reverb, chorus and delay — complete with tap tempo — for a sound that's unmistakably Lexicon.
