Mixer 16 inputs (8 XLR / Jack preamplified and 4 stereo jacks).
3 bus: main mix, control room for monitoring and a subgroup alt 3 / 4.
2 auxiliary (2 starts, a trip).
And also a S / PDIF coaxial 44.1 kHz and a USB port for input / output simultaneously with a computer!
3-band parametric equalizer.
28-bit multi-effects 100 factory presets (reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, pitch shifter).
Input / output jacks 3.5 for CD.
Really all you need for a small console!
Ultra simple, the switches are intelligently placed (solo and mute functions, assigning to the output bus ...).
Manuel clear but it lacks a global view of the table.
I use only live, having installed in a fly with my Gator GX42 wireless microphones (3 = 2 saxes, a voice) which allows me to be functional in all circontances.
Its small size is really an asset, the sound is warm (like the console that heats a lot, small defect) through good preamps (I could compare it with a Yamaha, though dull side). No breath, no nothing.
The 3-band equalizer is very useful though quite limited.
I use it for 10 months. Impeccable.Que it works both on my little HK Lucas sound Xt or any type of sound (DJ, live band ...) when I am speaking as a guest. Result, I do not point to a gig without it!
€ 489 purchased at the time at Milonga (not the store there by top ...), it against, I find the best quality / price ratio in its class.
What interested me most was its multiple possibilities combined in such a small package.
Caution, however, it is not possible to edit the internal effects: 100 programs, period. But these are very good Alesis, it really helps out, and it avoids any lugging a rack and more ..
Major defects: it heats up quickly (but I still run in more than five hours and no problem) and the knobs may not be top quality (especially those of the gain) ..
I have not used my home studio, perhaps in the future ..
I would do the choice without hesitation, it is very convenient.

Moody 13's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Small table extremely friendly, the Alesis, I blessed with! Obviously, there are better, and I better, but for smaller contracts in the dining room is excellent! The quality is there, it does not attack such as Phonic, who made one very metal, a metal EQ, and treble sales (DJ style, for example). This one is a marvel of returned clean and distinct, treble are fine and gentle on it, the reverb is very honest (never too much reverb, however, it's draft). I who am "Behringer", well for once I would recommend buying this one, although I have not tested the new series of Behringer Xenyx.
General configuration very simple, the knobs to turn, that's all. Functions that are accessible to anyone, French manual, but so intuitive and easy to manage that one can almost do without the manual!
Here, for once, it is very transparent, no color, it will return the microphone that you plug in is already a model for the price! No breath, if we put aside all thoroughly, and again! No equalizer except on the edges of the microphones, quite enough, you will be delighted!
I use it since 2003, I like it a lot, and I do not part with it. I do it again this choice because in this price range, find that ...
