Provides the right inputs for most small-format desktop and live performance needs
Peavey gave the PV 6 mixer an impressive collection of I/O - with an affordable price tag - making it the right fit for many desktop studios, bands, and live venues that need a reliable mixer, without a bunch of channels they're never going to use. Onboard the PV 6, there are four microphone preamplifiers that have selectable global phantom power, so you can use the PV 6 with condenser microphones. If you have stereo sources - maybe a keyboard or a drum machine - you can use channels 3/4 and 5/6's stereo 1/4" inputs to connect them. On the rear panel of the PV 6, tape inputs and outputs make it easy to connect up an iPod or CD player, or maybe the outputs of your laptop computer.
Effects send/return lets you bring in your favorite outboard gear
Use the PV 6 mixer's effects send/return to bring in your outboard processing gear. A knob on each channel lets you dictate how much of each channel goes to the 1/4"-equipped send output. Stereo return inputs feature a knob for blending in the level of the effect with the dry signal.
Main outputs, control room outputs, and headphone outputs, and tape outputs
When it comes to flexible outputs and monitoring options, the PV 6 is ready to handle nearly any small-format setup you need. Onboard, there are stereo main and control room outputs. The control room output is the same as the headphone mix, and is controlled by the same level knob. You can send the PV 6's tape input signal to the control room for monitoring, or you can send the outside source to the main mix by flipping a switch. What's more, the PV 6 also features tape output, so you can record signals to your portable recorder or sound card input.
