The pathways include a four-band EQ, two variable frequency. This can be split into two parts (split EQ) to make corrections on both the signal (channel) and the return machine (monitor).
A Peak LED lets you view the risk of saturation, both in the micro channel in the monitor.
Connections of the multitrack machine made directly at the edge, a touch will manage the direct output pathway.
Group outings are visualized in 8 of 16 LED bargraph.
Groups can be reinjected into the final mix to allow a sub-grouping of instruments.
The Spirit Studio 16/8/2 also includes 4 effects returns with 2 band EQ. If the Spirit 16/8/2 is largely outclassed by the new generation digital console, it is nevertheless very ergonomic and easy to "fly".

Used in studio B NSM more oriented "sound research and composition", it has the extreme advantage of being able to convert to a console 32 channels, 16 returns machines being used as so many entries that can accept synthesizers, samplers and other "noise makers".
However, we prefer to mix on the 03D, which itself does not blow (oh, yes, analog is not that good!).
In short, the Spirit Studio 16/8/2 turns out to be a console rather ergonomic, easy to access but very effective.
Some owners of digital consoles have even said that the mixes made on this table were more statements (dynamic) than they have done on their equipment. But it remains to be seen (or rather hear) ...
