UTILIZATION

This console is very friendly and versatile.
Ideal for festivals by the number of entries.
It includes functions fairly simple and basic routing of all consoles oriented live.

SOUNDS

Level sound quality is pretty good.
The preamps on mono channels are effective.
Equalization side is correct, the parameters can work well and correct the color of sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I used the console several times since 4 years.
I really like the number of inputs is very interesting festivals in four or five groups and also the possible routing auxs which is logical enough to handle the return from the front while keeping a place for small effects.
I least exits auxs Jack (PG) not very cool level signal path to precisely manage the returns and also the routing of the micro-order makes little sense when you think (see specifications).

I used another console similar to a concert and I must say that I regretted that choice because it is very familiar to strength and we can do a good job if we are attentive and we decided to exploit it fully.

Level is a good choice price / quality especially with its side by the Argus.

To conclude: good console that can operate out to be successful and have good cover concerts, or even be used in the studio.
