Inspire Your Worship Team and Congregation with 40 Channels of Pristine Audio and Creative Mixing Control with an iPad!

Part of the Roland V-Mixer family, the Roland M-200i digital mixer with S-1608 digital snake is a digital mixing system with the award-winning sound quality and expandability of the larger V-Mixers, but in a more compact size and a very affordable price. This fully-featured pro mixer comes with 24 analog inputs (16 mic/line and 8 line level) and 14 outputs. With the included S-1608 you get an additional 16 mic/line inputs and 8 outputs for a system total of 40 inputs and 22 outputs. That's enough connectivity to be effective for most churches. The S-1608 is connected to the M-200i mixer with a single REAC (Cat5e) network cable. It can be used right at front of house (FOH) position with a traditional snake, on stage to supplement an analog snake you already own, or you can plug your wireless receivers and record/play devices directly into the mixer at FOH and bring your hardwired mic and instrument inputs from the S-1608 on the stage with super high quality digital audio over the REAC cable!

M-200i Digital Mixer with Flying Faders and iPad Control

The flexibility and mobility of comprehensive iPad control fused with the reliability and precision of a professional digital mixing console.

Cutting edge hybrid surface that combines an iPad with a physical controller.
The iPad functions as a large touch screen display. Use the iPad for intuitive control of effects and other graphical manipulation, while physically controlling the volume with the motorized faders. The advanced "Touch & Turn" surface provides a more convenient mixing environment than ever before by allowing you to touch a control on the iPad and control it with a physical knob.

All functions required for high-end live audio production are included.
Comfortable mixing capacity with 32ch inputs + Main/8AUX/4Matrix outputs. Despite its compact size, the M-200i ensures a comfortable 32ch input mix capacity. The output has the full specifications of Main(LR)/8AUX/4Matrix, which supports many mixing applications. Any of the built-in 24 analog inputs, the 40x40 channels on the REAC port, the effect outputs, and USB memory recorder can be assigned to the 32 channels.

Highly flexible performance regardless of your operational preferences.
By incorporating the iPad, the M200i can be operated in a variety of styles to fit any situation. Sound checks can be performed remotely from the stage or any location/seat in the room using the iPad. At the same time, all operations can still be performed at the console using the built-in display and dedicated knobs and buttons.

All input channels are equipped with two dynamics processors and a 4-band parametric EQ.
A gate/expander, compressor and 4-band parametric EQ are available on all 32 channels. The basics of any mix starts with good channel processing and the M-200i has it covered. The Main/8AUX/4Matrix output buses are all equipped with a compressor, 4-band parametric EQ, limiter, and delay.

Internal or remote head amp circuitry is digitally controlled for full recall.
The head amp control circuit is fully digitalized so at the touch of a button, all the parameters can be saved or recalled instantly. An externally connected Digital Snake is easily connected and remotely controlled perfectly from the M 200i surface.

24x12 Analog I/O that is easily expanded with REAC.
16 mic/line inputs, 8 line inputs, 2 main outputs, and 10 assignable outputs are all included in the compact body. Connect a Digital Snake to the REAC port to expand the number of inputs and outputs. It is also equipped with stereo digital output (AES/EBU) for directly connecting digital devices, as well as two headphone outputs for multiple-operator monitoring.

Discrete design of high-grade head amp circuit. Instantly save/recall all parameters.
16 inputs are equipped with a discretely designed high-grade microphone preamp circuit. The full digital control specification allows for instant saving and recalling of all parameters such as input gain, padding, and phantom power. An externally connected Digital Snake is fully controlled remotely.

Equipped with four versatile multi-effect processors. No need for outboard gear.
Four multi-effect processors can be easily inserted into any input channel, AUX bus, matrix bus and final output bus. Effect types can be selected from fifteen kinds of processors including reverb and delay, as well as three kinds of Roland "Vintage Effects" which are praised by audio engineers throughout the world.

Four 31-band graphic EQs - crucial for fine sound correction.
Four 31-band graphic EQs are included which are indispensable for live venues. Used together with signal delay on the input channel and output bus, detailed sound adjustments can be easily performed with the M-200i. In a venue where more detailed sound correction is required, eight more 31-band graphic EQs can be used by selecting the graphic EQ from the four multi-effects.

Built-in USB memory recorder for Uncompressed WAV recording.
Any two of the Main/8AUX/4Matrix outputs can be recorded as a 16-bit, uncompressed WAV file by inserting a USB memory stick in the back panel. WAV files stored in USB memory can be also be played from any input channel. In addition, the USB memory can be used for saving/loading configuration files on the M-200i.

The compelling convenience and effectiveness of remote control operation.

Comprehensive iPad control enables even better ways to mix a room.
Not just a few functions but comprehensive control - new workflows and ways to mix a room. Remotely control all aspects of the mix from the iPad and enjoy the feeling of superior response and comfortable operation. One of the compelling features the M-200i brings is the comfort of a surface with faders, knobs and buttons so tightly integrated with fully featured iPad screens that go well beyond controlling just a limited set of features. A wireless connection is established by simply attaching the WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter or a wireless LAN access point that in turn allows the user to remotely control the M-200i with the iPad from the stage or any location in the house. Operating the M-200i is not limited by its physical location.

iPad dock cable on the M-200i. The DOCK CABLE for connecting the iPad is included.
The DOCK CABLE connector for the iPad provides a reliable wired connection and stable operation which is not affected by fluctuations in electrical current. The DOCK CABLE connector also supplies power to the iPad.

control remoteley from a PC (Windows or Mac). Control remotely from a PC (Windows/Mac)
The M-200i can be controlled remotely from a PC (Windows/Mac) by using the M-200i RCS* dedicated software. You can operate the M-200i simultaneously from the iPad, a PC and the M-200i itself. *The M-200i RCS is a free download.

Three types of wireless connections.
The M-200i and an iPad can be connected wirelessly by attaching the "WNA1100-RL"(sold separately) dedicated wireless USB adapter or connecting with a wireless LAN device directly. The M-200i can then be operated from a remote location such as the stage or any seat in the house using the iPad. Depending on the situation, the communication method for the iPad and the M-200i can be selected from one of three types: "cable LAN connection," "wireless LAN connection," or"Ad-Hoc connection."

With REAC, it is a simple setup to enable high quality live multi-channel recording with the M-200i. Connect a computer's network port via a Cat5e/6 cable to the REAC port and record up to 40 channels directly to "Cakewalk SONAR Producer" DAW software. Edit and mix immediately after the recording. When the R-1000 48-track recorder/player is connected, a full playback and recording environment is enabled for virtual rehearsals, trainings and live capture. This way a fully integrated playback and recording system can be built without using a computer. Use the S-MADI unit to interface into MADI-based recording or broadcast environments. The S-RDK REAC Driver Kit is required for recording to Cakewalk SONAR Producer. The Roland OCTA-CAPTURE, the FA-66, or the VS-700R is required for monitoring.

Image of the edit screen on the M-200i mixer. The superior operability of the control surface enables all operations from the unit itself.
The M-200i can perform all operations with the moving faders, buttons and konbs on the main body itself. The parameter levels, system settings, and level meters can be confirmed with the LCD screen located on the top right corner. If an unexpected problem occurs with the iPad, all operations can be performed with the M-200i exclusively.

The back panel is equipped with MIDI connectors to transmit and receive data to and from external devices along with an RS-232C connector for integrated wall-panel and other types of remote control. The MIDI connectors support V-LINK, which makes it possible to link to Roland video equipment. When a device such as the V-40HD Video Switcher is connected, video images can be synchronized with the volume control of any channel - a true audio-follows-video configuration.
