The Soundcraft K3 Series was developed in 1997, ostensibly as a theatre console, but is equally at home in conference or live performance. The classic Soundcraft EQ, meterbridge, 8 groups and output matrix make this a very powerful and versatile mixing desk.

This particular version comprises 32 mono inputs, 8 Groups, 4 Stereo Returns, L,R and Mono Outputs, 4x4 Matrix, 8 Aux Outputs, switched pre/post in pairs.

32 mono input modules, each featuring:
XLR Mic, 1/4" Line (Hi-Z), 1/4" Direct O/P (pre EQ),
1/4" Insert Send, 1/4" Insert Return
Switched +48V Phantom, Phase reverse
100Hz Hi-pass Filter
EQ - 4 swept bands - switchable bypass
8 Aux Sends, switched in pairs pre/post fade.
Individually switched sends to Groups, Mix and Mono
8 LED Meter, Mute and Solo button
100mm Fader

Output & Master modules comprising:
L and R outputs on XLRM. Mono Output on XLRM
1/4" Insert Send, 1/4" Insert return across each.
Talkback Input on XLRF.
Talkback switchable to groups, aux, and to XLRM output
Oscillator, Control Room, Record Outputs on XLRM
Master Aux Outputs on 1/4" Jack.

Groups:
Each group module also has a stereo effects return, adding four extra stereo line inputs with full routing and access to Aux 1&2.
The inputs are 1/4" Stereo Jack.
Group outputs are XLRM, plus 1/4" Send and Return.
Output is controlled by 100mm fader.

MIDI:
The MIDI/Scene Set Module allows the K3 to store 128 Scenes, which are recalled either by pressing one of the eight Mute buttons, or by selecting a scene using the 3-character LED. The module will also output programmed MIDI values when a scene is recalled, which is useful for changing Effects units. 

Included in this offer: 2 x CPS275 power supplies, 2 LED lamps.

This console has had one owner from new and has not been toured - indeed, its never been out of the auditorium. Therefore, no flightcase available, but there is the original manufacturer's packing case.
