Korg Zero8
-So Yes it is a rackmount console via the separately sold Korg Brackets, personally I have not seen the utility that I carry in a fly gator ...
-Otherwise In terms of connectivity almost everything is available ... it lacks a spdif between ...
Full -equaliseur per
-section of very complte effect taking over part of those Introduced the KAOSS pad.

USE

-console Very easy to learn and really well done by his appearance Console + Controller
-The Manual could be more complete ripens all the same ...

SONORITS

-Franchement View its not I see too what little blame him, the sound is as transparent as was my E-mu 1616m ... I also have a M-Audio has to compare and cot I find the sound very good also

So to the question of breath ... in fact it's rather a digital noise that REALLY breath we hear if one is connected directly to the monitors and that they be rgl its at a high level circumvents this problem in several ways:
- By a bottom bracket (the master) and gradually rglant the volume of its monitor.
- Another alternative is to use like me KAOSS pad 3 between the console and the monitor in rglant gain on the output volume of the KAOSS (aa t Always On My fawn connect on the same KAOSS a table analog ...)
- A final solution is to use another sound card (on another PC) and use the spdif out of zero8 to the spdif in sound card ... in this way the sound is clean;) .. . I use this technique to my recordings

-l'equalo is very well in the evening to catch an evil rgl PA system;) ... but I equalize in general in my daw

We are waiting for the tjs Modified by korg of the problem of "breath" but I think we will have to do with the problem ... for me now it's not the most important because it is easily coutournable

NOTICE GLOBAL

a must bientt one years that I use, I love the concept, ease of use and do I connect my live 5 minutes (no more cables 36000 !!!) .. . I would love to see improvement as above:
-a master insert that would go back to Ableton to use effects on the master of ableton
-the possibility of assigning some Controller Audio + MIDI mode
-a saving effects

In esprant Korg is so the fingers of the c ... to finish this patient we console!

Korg Zero8
_ The Korg Zero 8 is not directly rack mountable (height for a console in this range)
_ It possde 8 track stereo bus, 3 bus send and return,
_ 2 between XRLR, 8stereo jack and RCA digital output, MIDI IN / OUT
_ 11 Modeling Eq
_ 3 effect section slice, send and master touch screen
_ The sampling may get a 24-bit 192Khz with some limitations (FX)
_ Automation through host
_ In syncho twelve o'clock or noon from FW. BPM also dedtection the chosen track.

generally provided enough c, AIM I see a bus, or ADAT optical I / O, but ...

UTILIZATION

_ Gnrale configuration is relatively simple: on each track if you chose the option of audio, MIDI or two, the rest of the setups is the touch screen. (Routing I / O, bus, fader curves, eq modes, fx, ect ...)
_the functions are relatively accessible.
_ The manual is not provided but enough.

Operation is very simple eat fairly intuitive, c cool to choose MIDI or audio les2 the Fx Intgr are numerous and correct without being unbelievable.

SOUNDS

_ C is the gate that is: the sound is not the level I expected to:

_ Breath quite noticeable if the output level is low. We can bypass the pb by turning "hot" and possibly using a pramp output, but rather c problmatique if the console is connected directly to a sound sytem static. no news korg after over a year ... However, bypassing the bp, the background noise becomes almost / completely imperceptible.

_ The equalizer can operate in modes DIFFERENT: eq / isolator / filter but personally I do not help, I find the average sound and they induce peaks quickly, and I control my prfre virtual ds eq ableton.

_ Some strange background noise clicks, pops, random numeric noize, sound quality gnrale assze mdiocre in my opinion.

OVERALL OPINION

_ I use it for about 6 months

_ Which is really cool, finally a true c 8 tracks noon with a cross and AB, the touscreen, anything that is relative to control midi is pretty joussif

_g dja had a lot of analog mixers and MIDI controller, I expected this kind of product for a long time.

_ Report quality price seems right without being exeptional.
_mmm I doubt if I really apprci MIDI and live use, the audio quality would really MRIT a little more attention and I am tired of the lack gn ral information from korg.

Scotch Nanmoins when a little still a top c turie to have everything at hand to control ableton or other faders are really cool.

Korg Zero8
See the other reviews, see site Korg

UTILIZATION

Manuel very succinct
Requires a little time to adapt to use the effects

SOUNDS

So I used several Zero 8 and I never had any problems or other blast.
Is what I was lucky to fall on machines in good working order?
Is it a problem of old Zero 8?
The sound is very nice and clean.
The equalizers very effective as fully configurable (just to turn a knob to choose among 11 programs). Each channel can have a different configuration (setting race fader, equalizer, effects pre or post fader).

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it there for 3 months now.
The value is excellent (knowing that I could find a shop in Toulouse, which has made me a very good price well below the rates charged generally).
I've used other Zero 8 before buying one. I had quite a mix of tables before (Djm 800, ...) since it's been almost 13 years since I started the mix.
I would do without hesitation that choice because it is really necessary in this sector mix / prod.
Note that the site of Korg, an update is available (version 1.6) which brings many improvements to Zero
