First and foremost, I use the 1002 when I need to go on location and record radio spots. It allows me to give the presenters everything that they would have in a studio, without carrying around all that weight of a studio board and still get the studio quality sound. Next, I am able to use the aux sends of the mx2442A and have 1 to 8 separate mixes directly into the ub1002, which is connected to my laptop via an external 24 bit sound card, that allow me to have more control over the mix into my laptop.
The sound quality is great on all of my previous projects, but this new addition has made recording more versatile and allowed more “fine tuning”, that makes the sound quality even better. This board is not only good for recording or mixing sound, it has also been a great help to me, as a musician, also. I am a drummer as well as a recording engineer, and I am very picky about my headphone mix. I use the 1002 to control my own monitor mix from my drums without worrying about getting the sound techs attention, and trying to give him hand signals on what to turn up or down. So you see, this is an excellent board with endless uses.
As you can see, this mixer is very impressive for its size and price. If you do not want to spend big bucks on equipment, but still need the quality and versatility, this is the board for you. I highly recommend the ub1002 even if you do not need it now; you will at some point need what this board provides.
