This mixer is overall great, I have seen it and been able to interact with it in several home based studio’s. So I decided to give it a try myself. It's so easy to use and is a joy to work with! The effects are brilliant and making your own is easy! The fact that it has a built in Feedback Ferret in it just makes life easier! It's only got eight filters, but that's enough for small-scale live sound! It's direct USB recording is just a god-send and whatever you put onto a USB flash drive can be played back through the last channel! Six auxiliary masters make it easy to run large-scale sound and it is also equipped with four sub-groups!!!!! If there is any drawbacks, it would be that the push buttons to select where the channels go to (e.g L/R) are really small and doesn't really help during live sound!!!


UTILIZATION

4 Aux channels + 2 Effects/Aux channels. 4 Subgroups. Media in and out. 2 adjustable effects groups. Lots of possibilities in the built in effects (Compressors, Limiters, Reverb, and etc.). I have recorded strait to a usb Jump Drive, but have not used the direct to pc recording. The direct to USB Drive recording was okay but you kind of have to guess on your volume levels. As you cannot hear what you are recording.


SOUNDS

I have experience a little buzz but that could be because some of my wire’s weren’t grounded properly.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, I have had my mixer for 2 1/2 years performs perfectly week in and week out. Have it paired with 2 Peavey Impulse 1015s pushed by a Peavey PV900 amp. I also run 2 Peavey 15" Black Widow 500w wedge monitors pushed by a Peavey PV900 amp. Other auxes go to headphone mixes, a set of voice only monitors, 1 for effects, and 1 for a more "tune-able" output for recording.
