The console is actually an audio signal mixing console, also known as a tuning console. It is the control center of a professional audio system and is a multi-input, multi-output tuning control device. Multi-channel input signal amplification, mixing, processing, distribution, and sound quality modification and sound effects processing, is an important device for modern radio broadcasting, stage ballroom sound reinforcement, audio program production and playback systems and recording. 

The console can accept multiple input impedance signals with different impedances and levels, and amplify and process these signals, then mix, redistribute, or recompose the signals at different volumes to generate one or more outputs. Through the console, you can also monitor each input signal.

The main functions of the console include: signal amplification, signal processing, signal mixing, and signal distribution.
