Value For Money : Excellent
I'm not going Retailer CHARACTERISTICS ... it's a small console in Fully mtal with 8 XLR inputs plus 2 pairs of inputs (Stereo). It can be rack mounted, there are adapters. For my part I use it as a small console keyboards of my home studio. It is placed on the table. There is no built-in effects (often not cheap ...), let alone USB FireWire. Just the inputs, and 2 to 3-band EQ (medium paramtriques) on vocals and only single band EQ on channels 2 Stereo.

The faders are 60mm is a bit short ... but still happening. When the knob, I find trs enjoyable handling, although they move a little bit. But nothing serious. No need for adapter, just a classic form. on the other hand I regret the absence of a interuptor ON / OFF. It is therefore an extension cord plugged into a interuptor Intgr. It's going well, but it is a little less noble.

UTILIZATION

Very simple and clear. If you say anything ... once work with a small console, it comes out right away. As mentioned above, it is enjoyable trs handle, the buttons are large enough, although they move a little bit. They are much more stable on the ZED 14 Allen & Heath, for cons I like less the sound of that ... dernire

I have not taken the same manual. If I need it, is found on the manufacturer's website, in English, German and Spanish. It will be in German for me ...

SOUNDS

I will not speak of transparency with this little console. Global Warming it sound good! I can compare with my Mackie (1402 VLZ 3) I use in my live set-up, the Mackie is colder, more surgery at the EQ, the pramps have more on Mackie Reserved.

This small Soundcraft tonnament is hot. The EQ trs are effective, not soft like the ZED ... but are still in a register trs musical. I did not notice breath, at least much less than the Behringer that I had up until a few years ago.

For the price, the sound is really more than adequate.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since last winter. I did not need a console standard, with possible standards. But a small analog mixer for my keyboards (many are mono) in my home studio. Dynaudio speakers with branches on the monitor. And sounds great. I really feel it was worth the money. Sound really hot.

Do not expect miracles, a is never a 200B or other inline console Soundcraft home, but means well trs musical heirloom there derrire this brand! And to pay the price you receive a small solid console with 12 channels for the same price as in 1202 in Mackie, but the heat and more ...
