Value For Money : Excellent
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!

UTILIZATION

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.

SOUNDS

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.
