The Fairlight MFX3 Plus recording management keyboard #Keyboards @KbdNews
The Fairlight MFX3 Plus sports ALPS SKCL Yellow keyswitches, and was designed to handle 24 tracks of recording live.
In essence, the MFX3 is the hard-disk replacement for a conventional analog/digital multitrack transport – up to 24 tracks of simultaneous, real-time record/replay locked to timecode, with all of the normal editing functions.
According to Mel Lambert reviewing the MFX3 in this article, one neat aspect of this beast is that the removable 5.25-inch MO drive can not only hold a complete 24-track project, but will also replay up to 12 tracks continuously.
If you train up on this, be sure you keep your proficiency, it’s a beast easily forgotten.
