/Line switch, two-band EQ
Engage switch and an internal Booth Ducking
enable jumper. In addition to the six dedicated preamplifiers, all six Input channels may select any of the five stereo

indicators and a studio-grade Master
The Booth Output may select Master
or Cue as its source. An ultra-low noise
, high power headphone amplifier
also allows monitoring the Master

Mix circuit provides Signal/Overload
switch and high-pass/rumble filters. In addition, the Master
Output features patent-pending high performance 3-band, full-cut, Accelerated-Slope tone controls.
The MP 2016S
provides exceptional ergonomics, good feel and a clean, intuitive layout packaged in a compact 19 inch, 3U rack
mount chassis, a scant five inches deep.
So you say,"Great, but to accommodate the diverse needs of all DJ mixing
styles, I need dedicated high performance three-band, full-cut, Accelerated-Slope tone controls for each of the six Input Channels, high-performance Active-Crossfader with full range contour control, A-Post-B crossfader assign
switches and a stereo
, 10-segment, peak dBu Master
/Cue meter with peak hold
; all without effecting the ergonomics of my classic rotary mixer
We've got you covered! With the flip of a switch on the MP 2016S
front panel, you can engage the optional XP 2016S External Processor and acquire all of these features.
The XP 2016S is an optional external processor designed specifically for use with the MP 2016S
. The XP 2016S is intended to mount above or below the MP 2016S
. It connects with a single 10-inch ribbon cable and is engaged with the flip of a switch on the MP 2016S
front panel. If an XP 2016S is not connected, the XP 2016S engage switch on the MP 2016S
has no effect.
The XP 2016S provides dedicated Accelerated-Slope, 3-band, full-cut tone controls for each of the six stereo
Input channels, A-Post-B Crossfader Assign
switches for all six Input channels, a high-performance Active Crossfader with full range Contour control, and a stereo
10-segment peak dBu Master
/Cue Meter with peak hold
The six stereo
, post Mix Level
signals in the MP 2016S
are fed to the XP 2016S. When the XP 2016S is not engaged, the post Mix Level
signals go directly to the Master
Mix in the MP 2016S
. When the XP 2016S is engaged, the stereo Master
Mix comes from the XP 2016S.
If all Input channels on the XP 2016S are assigned Post-Crossfader, the Mix will be identical to the MP 2016S
(with the addition of tone controls for each Input channel
). For Crossfader control, simply assign
to the A or B side of the Crossfader. The Active Crossfader features a full-range Contour control for smooth blending or ultra fast cuts.
/Cue Meter follows the source selection of the headphone
monitor on the MP 2016S
. If Master
is selected, the
XP 2016S Meter monitors
the pre-house-level Master
signal. If Cue is selected, the XP 2016S meter monitors
the Cue Source.
The XP 2016S matches the MP 2016S
ergonomics, packaged in a compact 19 inch, 3U rack
mount chassis, 5 inches deep.
