Teenage Engineering introduces TX-6 Mixer and Audio Interface

Teenage Engineering has announced the release of the TX-6 ultra-portable pro-mixer. A 6-channel stereo mixer with built-in EQ, compressor and digital effects, the mixer can also be used as a multi-functional USB audio interface.


Other features include instrument tuner and built-in sound generator that utilises four waveforms and four drum sounds. The mixer is powered by a rechargeable battery, so it should be useful as an on-the-go mixing solution for live performance or outdoor music-making. In addition, TX-6 is also equipped with MFi and BLE, so it will be quick and easy to connect with other portable devices.


Armed with eight built-in effects, the TX-6 offers reverb, chorus, delay, freeze, tape, filter and distortion. Each of its six channels has its own three-band EQ and adjustable compressor. The mixer can also be flipped on its side and used in what TE calls “DJ mode”, where channel 1 becomes a fader that crossfades between channels 5 and 6.

The TX-6 is said to be the first release in a series of products called “field system”, which Teenage Engineering say are “designed with portability, compatibility and durability in mind” and “driven by a desire to rethink the way we approach music making”. According to their press release, more devices and accessories in this vein are on the way.
