Analog mixer clipping question!

Hello everyone!

I have a very simple, yet important question about analog mixers.

The question is:

Can i damage mixer itself if i increase the channels gain/master volume controls all the way up so it’s clipping very hard? (i don’t mean speakers, i know speaker will be burn immediately! i just wonder mixer itself).

Is it bad for the mixer or it doesn’t matter?


Hi. Yes, it is possible to damage the input/output circuitry on the mixer by running the inputs too hot for too long.

Thank you very much! Appreciate!
