Soundcraft EFX12
already said above

UTILIZATION

Very simple setup, no need of manual functions accessible

SOUNDS

console very good sound, great equalizer, no breath

OVERALL OPINION

1 month that I use, super console, before I had a Yamaha MG16 fx but I prefer the sound of this one, superb lexicon effects, most the number of tracks and effects, at least: one to but there may be two stage monitoring over an input to the front and effects entry
I remake that choice super value price of 200 euros for real super secondhand 12 tracks

OVERALL OPINION

For 5 less.
Yes Mackie, Yamaha, Samson, Audiophony, Behringer? etc..
+ The amount and quality of microphone inputs.
+ The quality effects.
One-on.
The value for money is huge, with a second auxiliary console her tight perfect for a little training. Over time I would take a greater console even manufacturer. Excellent

blaizeisdead's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Soundcraft EFX12
Small analog console existing 6, 8 and 12 votes I think. I have version 8 votes (they are all systematically 2voix stereo and more)
It is rack only if you bought the "bar" to the rack separately (damage)
The connections of Jack's 6.35 per entry and any insert, 2RCA to a "record out" and XLR and 6.35 per mix out.
Parametric EQ on mono inputs, not on the 2 stereo and more.
There is a multi-effects processor integrated lexicon with 32 presets, and all modifiable with 3 3 Pottar to control value. There're also a tap tempo for delay or lfo.

This is my first analogue console, I'm not too much for comparison, but the level characteristic for a small amateur home-studio owners, I find complete! I put 10 because it is perfect for amateurs like me.

UTILIZATION

The setup is fairly simple, it's my first console as said above, and I quickly used to it, everything falls readily to hand. You just need a 2-3 page can read the manual (in English) where they explain to what use the volume pot on a scheme
Usual function, the bin is EQ and volume, so yeah it's easily accessible. Maybe the pottard EQ its a bit too outreach, has turned a bit hard sometimes, but it is largely surmountable!
The manual, I thought he considered that one would know them already. It is in English and not necessarily very clear. However the page where schematically a section of the console with arrows explaining briefly what is this pottard is quite handy. To have on hand at the beginning for the newbie.

I'll put 9 because of the raproche Pottar.

SOUNDS

Regarding the transparancy of the console, I know I have no comparison, it appears that the soundcraft "color" the sound. Personally I do not know if it color or not, but I find her very pretty. We can grow strong enough gain, without any distortion or saturation. There have absolutely no audible breath on my Studiophile AV40 (maybe one can monitor on a 2000 € but hey, he who pays this kind of monitor will not take that kind of console).
The equalizer is very effective, can really make a change to its flat its a lot deeper.
The effects are good, as said above there have a lot of adjustments (3 Pottar and a volume fader). Delay and Reverb very effective, I connected a Nord Lead 2x above, which has no effect integrate.
What a pleasure to play on a Nord Lead with effects!
However, you can assign Q'una only effect, but as many votes as you want. If you want reverb on voice 1, we can not make a delay or a flanger on another voice. It's a shame but hey, for this price range is "normal"

To sum up on the sounds: All who enters the soundcraft, apparent at least the same, or better TERRIBLE!

I rediscovered my Nord Lead ^ ^

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months
What I like most:
The EQ-very reactive
-Effects that adds a touch of the synth n'on no effect
The plug-in sufficient numbers (monitor out, headphone, auxiliary out, out out record, external line input, XLR out mix)
-Price (300 € at Thomann)
What I like least:
-Uh ... nothing

EXCELLENT value for money

with experience, what question ... of course I do it again this election, this console is great! eyes will be closed for small homestudiste with great synth and not a lot of input on their sound card ^ ^
