The KL-8™ is a rackmount keyboard mixing station designed to provide complete control
over a professional keyboard setup, both on stage and in the studio. You can connect up to
four analog keyboards in mono or stereo, each with an individual level control to adjust the
balance between them. An aux send/receive is also available to feed effects pedals or rackmount reverbs and delays, or it can be used as an additional stereo input for a fifth keyboard.
MIDI and USB connections make it easy to control a laptop soft-synth, utilizing the KL-8’s
high-quality 24bit/192kHz digital audio converters. Dual USB connections provide the ability
to employ redundant laptop systems.

The SW8-USB™ eliminates the need to have digital audio interfaces accompany each computer.
Dual USB inputs with separate 24bit/192 kHz 8 digital to analog converter cards allow
two computers to be connected in tandem. Both computers will see the SW8-USB as an available
audio and MIDI interface, allowing for instant connection of both digital workstations.
MTC can be passed between both computers, providing easy start/stop synchronization between
them. Eight channels of transformer-isolated XLR and ¼” outputs are included, with
the ability to switch between mic-level and +4dBu line level. With the SW8-USB, switching
between playback rigs has never been easier, or more streamlined!
The AC-Driver™ is a small but powerful preamp for acoustic instruments on stage. EQ and
volume adjustments provide you with complete control over your tone in a rugged steel
chassis with heavy-duty components that will withstand the harshest touring environments.
A variable low-cut filter removes excessive low frequencies, along with a notch filter and a
180° polarity reverse switch to help eliminate feedback. A balanced XLR output feeds the PA
system or a powered speaker, while a ¼” output can be used to simultaneously connect to an
amplifier. The AC-Driver also features an always-on ¼” tuner output and a dedicated Mute
footswitch, allowing for silent tuning on stage.
The Catapult Mini™ is the latest addition to the Catapult modular snake system,
which allows you to drive four analog audio channels over a single shielded CAT 5 cable. This
eliminates the need for bulky and expensive multi-pair audio cable runs, and allows contractors
to take advantage of pre-wired networks to connect from one room to another. The
Catapult Mini TX™ and the Mini RX™ can be used together as a pair, or they can be individually
matched with any other Catapult stage box. For instance, you can use a Catapult TX4M™
on stage to split four mic lines to feed the monitor console, while utilizing a Catapult Mini RX
to receive the signal at the FOH console.
