The CMS 600-3 is suitable for a variety of professional applications – live performances, recording studios, or fixed installations. The light (only 5.8 kilograms) and compact design makes it easy to carry.


The CMS 600-3 includes ultra low-noise and low-hum, electronically balanced XLR microphone inputs (with an extremely low distortion factor, typically < 0.002%), a nine-band stereo equalizer in the master section, and switchable low-cut filters that intervene at 80 Hz. An integrated USB 2.0 digital interface of studio quality is suitable not only for live recordings but also the playback of recordings and interval music. In addition to the classic six mono and two stereo analogue inputs, the CMS offers two stereo digital inputs via USB. Each channel boasts three sends – FX (post-fader), AUX (switchable globally pre-/post-fader), and Monitor (pre-fader) – as well as a Balance/Pan control, a Mute and PFL switch, and a volume fader with Peak and Signal display.


The CMS 600-3 is equipped with two separately editable effects units with 2 x 100 factory presets optimized for live performance and 2 x 20 user presets covering the widest range of live and recording needs. The effects are switchable remotely (via MIDI or foot switch), while a large, contrast-rich OLED display allows user-friendly operation.

A rack-mount kit for integration into 19-inch racks is available as an option, as is a made-to-measure bag for safe and easy transport.
