The GB2R from Soundcraft offers 16 mono inputs to a stereo mix output, a pair of full-feature stereo inputs, 2 group busses, and 6 auxiliary sends. It’s a 19”, rack-mountable mixer intended for smaller-scale installations including houses of worship, performance venues, portable PA systems, and broadcasting studios.

The difference between the two GB2R models is the inputs and outputs. The GB2R also features a GB30 Mic Preamplifier and Equalizer that enables high-resolution adjustment over a wide gain range of 55 dB. An internal universal voltage PSU dispenses with the need for power supply connections. Compact and easy to integrate into setups of myriad sizes, shapes, and styles, this mixer offers a connector section in a rotatable pod so you can gain cable access to the top of the mixer or the rear—perfect for positioning on a table or desktop or mounting it in a 19” rack.

More about Soundcraft’s GB Analog Mixers

Soundcraft’s acclaimed GB Series of analog mixers boasts high-quality engineering, innovative design, and painstaking details.

Rugged and reliable, its mechanical construction has been crafted to endure strenuous conditions, so you get the best performance out of your audio mix no matter how much punishment you give your gear. All input modules are made with individual, vertically mounted PCBs that have been carefully fitted to the front panel of the steel chassis with individually nutted potentiometers.

GB mixers share the stylish aesthetic of Soundcraft’s MH4, MH3, and LX7ii consoles, for a consistent look and feel across their product range. This allows you to get great sound out of great-looking gear.
