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.
It is the quality Mackie. Net and are right, no coloring, no breath if we know rgler its levels ...

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 ...
