F Series Features


RCF’s next generation F Series mixers builds on the rich analog legacy found in the professional E Series, featuring high quality sound in four formats from 6 to 16 channels. A powerful tool for the musician and the sound enthusiast, entirely conceived and designed by the RCF R&D team. Housed in a sturdy metal chassis, each mixer features a full balanced audio path from input to output and the unique PRO DSP FX: 16 professional effects such as Reverbs (Halls, Rooms, Plates, Spring), Delays (Mono, Stereo and Multitap), Chorus, Flangers and Echoes.

16 studio-quality effects and multiple AUXs increase the musical power of the F Series. FX returns can route to AUXs for personal monitor mixes, while the buses and the control room panel can simplify complex routings. Recording your gigs and rehearsals is even easier with an onboard USB audio interface, ready for 2-track playback or recording with a computer.
