Teenage Engineering has launched a new handheld mini mixer called the TX-6.
This six-channel battery-powered device can be controlled over USB-C with iOS hardware or through external MIDI devices and is equipped with a synth, drum machine, sequencer, eight built-in effects – including reverb, delay, chorus, freeze, tape, filter and distortion – and an instrument tuner.
Furnished in anodised aluminium with synthetic leather backing and a rechargeable battery, the mixer can also be turned on its side and switched into 'DJ mode', turning each channel into a crossfader. It is the Stockholm-based brand’s introduction into the audio interface market.
The TX-6 is the first of Teenage Engineering’s new Field System line of products which are "designed with portability, compatibility and durability in mind" and "driven by a desire to rethink the way we approach music-making,” they say. The mixer is priced at £1,199, a fairly high price for what appears to be a simple unit, but as is always the case with Teenage Engineering, there's likely more to the unit than meets the eye.

Earlier this year, the Swedish brand introduced a collection of new affordable modules based on its Pocket Operator Modular series, which start at £29.
