The Mini retains the full sound quality, uses the same preamps, limiters, faders, components as the CantarX3, with 16 tracks instead of 24, with less inputs, making it considerably smaller in size and weight - just 2.8Kg with 2 batteries on board - almost half the weight of the X3. The software comes across also from the X3.

The Mini also has a large tilting display, uses the same batteries, and is compatible with the add-on mixer/fader panel Cantarem2.

You can also see the CantarX3, the location sound recorder that’s taken the high end sound recording community by storm, a 24 track digital sound recorder with stunning sound quality and a long list of features.

On show also accessories including Cantarem2, an add-on fader panel to add more faders for high track count recording on both the X3 and the Mini. The new-ABox with 8 rotary magnetic potentiometers and USB, extending capabilities of the CantarX3 and the Mini.
