Description
GHOST LE
Ghost LE is a stripped-down version of
Ghost, designed for users who do not
need transport control or MIDI facilities.
Channel strips are identical to Ghost,
offering the same superb audio quality
and facilities, and all audio facilities of
the master section are also carried over.
The CPU and its associated facilities,
however, are omitted. Mutes can be
switched manually, but there is no
mute automation or mute
grouping, and no machine control
or MIDI support. Ghost LE is
ideally suited to live recording
and mixing, installed sound, or
recording applications where
little or no MIDI equipment
is involved.

Designing good audio mixers has never been easy –
but with the widespread use of ultra-quiet digital
recorders, and improvements all through the live and
studio audio chain, today’s mixers have to stand up
to closer sonic scrutiny than ever before. At the same
time, mixing has become less a process that takes
place at the console alone, and more one that
involves outboard effects, samplers, and
synchronisation of audio and video recorders. It’s a
big task for a mixer to keep in touch with all of that
– which is why Soundcraft created Ghost, the
ultimate affordable analogue recording console.
Simply put, Ghost is the only desk that delivers the
audio precision, quality and all the control features of
a big studio desk without the usual prohibitive price
ticket.
The EQ, for instance, is directly comparable to that of
the classic Soundcraft 3200 and Europa consoles. No
compromises.
An all-new mic preamp, ProMic, has been developed
just for Ghost. Its performance alone puts Ghost into
a different league from other consoles of similar
price.
The killer punch, however, is delivered by Ghost’s
integral computer-based machine control and mute
automation. Derived from the innovative Soundcraft
DC2020 post-production console, the machine
control in Ghost makes it far more than just another
mixer. It actually forms the heart of an automated
recording setup with countless benefits in ease of
use and production efficiency.
Read on and discover just what Ghost will do for you.
QUALITY AND VERSATILITY
Ghost is a highly versatile 8-bus mixer, packed with facilities for
handling a wide range of recording and mixing applications.
Whether for studio or live recording, or mixing for picture, this is
a console that offers unparalleled flexibility and value.
Ghost is an in-line multitrack mixer with a Mix B path (often
called monitor path), as well as the main signal path on each
channel strip. It’s called “Mix B” because the architecture of the
signal routing is much more flexible than that suggested by the
term “monitor”, offering many of the features normally found
only on a main input channel. Unlike many mid-range consoles,
Ghost doesn’t restrict facilities such as muting and EQ to the
main channel path.
24 and 32 channel frames are available, providing 56 and 72
inputs respectively at mixdown. In addition, using the 24 channel
expander unit, a further 48 inputs at mixdown are possible.
There’s signal level indication on each channel as standard, plus
an optional meterbridge with 12-segment channel meters and
20-segment left/right master meters, for more precise metering.
Ghost’s audio path combines traditional analogue benefits, and
innovations like Soundcraft’s latest high-performance ProMic
mic preamp, with automated muting on both the main channel
and Mix B inputs. The automation is based on the advanced
technology used on Soundcraft’s ground-breaking DC2020
console, and proven in both professional recording and post-production
environments.
Unlike other mixers, Ghost’s ProMic mic amplifier offers smooth
control over a wide gain range – up to 60dB. It’s amazingly
quiet, giving greatly improved noise performance in the mid-gain
region, with enough headroom for peaks from drum kit
mics, and extremely low distortion figures.
EQ is a crucial part of a mixer, and the EQ on Ghost is designed
without compromise – two fully parametric overlapping mid
bands, with shelving high and low filters. Classic ‘British EQ’, in
fact, like that found on Soundcraft’s acclaimed 3200 and Europa
consoles. The result is unsurpassed ability to control and correct
– for creative effect in a recording session, or applying corrective
EQ to an awkward live signal.
Being able to swap main and Mix B inputs, and split the EQ
between the two paths, Ghost allows a high degree of control
over a mix. Professional features on the channel strip include
individually switchable phantom power, phase reverse and plenty
of aux sends – 10 aux busses including 2 stereo pairs in all.
There’s level and peak metering on every channel, and both the
main and Mix B paths have MIDI muting and PFL, while the main
channel path also offers true solo-in-place.
