Prompt notice after a few hours of use ... I have not had the opportunity to test the mic preamps, so patience!

For specifications, see, there is!

Finally a feature solo by solo against the level is not adjustable, it is surprising quantity was inadvertently dropped the master. The channel peak meters are very useful, are clearly illuminated mute. EQ with Bypass, but flat, and on, the eq does not color and I wonder why this button?

Very good finish, largment than the Soundcraft Spirit M4 I had for some time. The faders are a little firm but it's going. The knobs are plastic rods, such as the M4 for that matter, but appear to be sufficiently firm and specific.


Implementation child, I have not opened the doc.

The spacing of the buttons is not enough to affect other buttons by mistake.


Sounds at least small qu'auparavent Mackie, and you really get away. Much less crosstalk than the M4, not the evils EQ, even on stereo channels can be corrected or an mp3 or add / remove from the presence in a synth without a problem. I would have preferred a smaller Q in the semi-parametric midrange, but it's even pretty good. Simply great value.


I am very happy with my choice, I hope the Firewire card will also be promising. This console is built, the buttons are clear and pleasant, Neutrik everywhere, Silk-screen Printing net. In addition to standard format, it takes very little space, even if it is thick at the back. It is not worth a Neve VR ;-) but compared to other small consoles, mixes etc are sisters VLZ Pro. It stands out, remains to be seen the quality of the preamp!
