Manley MicMaid 4x4 Matrix

The Manley MicMaid 4x4 Matrix allows you to match up your choice of mics and preamps in any combination you want. Simply connect up to four microphones and four preamplifiers and swap out each combination with the push of a button.

Push Button Mic Auditioning

The Manley MicMaid 4x4 Matrix provides simple button press control over different mic and preamp combinations. The simple yet effective grid-based selector buttons on the front panel allow you to quickly and easily cycle through different combinations to find the perfect one for your recording needs.

Integrated Memory

The MicMaid 4x4 Matrix utilises a memory feature to allow you to save your favourite combinations and exact settings and gains from your individual devices. This not only reduces frustration, but increases productivity and workflow by allowing you to work faster and smoothly by giving you instant access to the settings you need, whenever you need them. The MicMaid features an efficient front panel design, providing all the control you need. The gain knob offers 19.5dB of gain adjustment at 0.5dB steps plus another adjustable knob allows to match the phase of a direct input.
