USE

Operation is simple and intuitive. The manual is very clear and gives many examples of use (missing, however the console coupling, but it is very simple with 2 among STREO ...).

The only point a little strange is the lack of direct assignment of a path to L / R. While not pass SUB, which is somewhat surprising departure. But it is well explained in the manual.

For example, for a basic operation:
Assign each channel 1/2
Assign subs 1 and 2 L / R
Set the level of subs 1 and 2 U

Once we understand a, a roll.

You can also assign a group of 3/4, which enables rapid mixing a group (drums, chorus, violin section etc.)

Note the presence of an output STREO (mix) supplmentaire (Utility) with indpendant level rglage (but taken after the main mix) for sound to another room or the back of the room etc.


SONORITS

It is the quality Mackie. Net and are right, no coloring, no breath if we know rgler its levels ...
equalizers formidable. Use with prcaution!

The equalizer output is a little gadget, but it can help in simple cases ...


NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for over a year. Absolutely nothing wrong, except that I want another one for 32 channels on hand! (Last sono: 28 tracks with 12 channels + 2 extension pr-mix 2-> 1 ...)

In the 80s, I had an Allen and Heath 16/4/2 I'd improves (recblage buses, mute, level LEDs per channel direct outputs, headphone amplifier etc. ) .dropoff window With Mackie, I have everything!

I appreciates the sound quality, the precision of rglages, 2 among stro that allow me extension, SUB output (for subwoofer) ...

I only regret the absence of direct assignment L / R by, but that's a detail. Also, two departures AUX / PRE have more t ... apprcis (never enough mix back ...). Too bad the AUX 3 and 4 may not be in the PRE connects ...

Too old to move to digital ...
