the gain is a strong point of this console, to saturate the preamp should do it on purpose!

it'll have been perfect with a switch on / off the eq

UTILIZATION

Console easy to use, if a neophyte find her soon. attention all the same with the aux can be injected at all, or part returns 1 and 2 in the aux send 1 and 2. Wholesale feedback guaranteed.

The bus system is still interesting for the registration night, it can send a strong signal on your tape recorder, while having a different volume on the master.

using a patch see two 2 * 24 is most useful when you start to have much possibility of routing.

I liked a switch on / off the equalizer.

the image of the series sr-xx-04 still the same brand, have an auxiliary section 100% usable simultaneously would have been a big plus. then we can not use that 4 simultaneously on each track. we must choose between the pair 3 / 4 or 5 / 6.

Despite racing 60mm faders, their movement can be smooth, they offer a slight resistance avoiding the jumps when they are moving slowly. Moreover, all the knobs on this console have a slight resistance to movement.


SOUNDS

I would say that this console has body. before this one had a phonic, see notice filed for those concerned, here one feels the difference, really, and immediately the entire registry! is at once more dynamic. to side, it could put the word "fairly" to all floors: one can get a result quite late, we may get a kick powerful enough, rather twisted, we just get way hot enough, it can get quite easily all characters sound.

coupled to various audio processors, the results can be quite impressive!

after, it is clear that if we want to excellence finesse, excellent kick punchy, with a twist and extreme music, a way like hot embers, bin, will go on very high end . 1500% after the euro tranche. this is not the same budget!

Note 10/10 is for me the value price for the second hand market.


OVERALL OPINION

this console will be able to render great service, see be used as the centerpiece of a project. She will be able to receive all kind of sound, with a result good enough to claim the final draft over mix, be it in home or studio setup small musical scenes.

if you want to ride quality, must immediately spend more than double!

coast decreases so does not, normal, well maintained, they do not age, keep a 10 years? no problem.
