No effects Intgr.


Gnrale fairly ergonomic setup. Connectivity and routing results. Not rocket science. Manual clear and in French.


Relatively transparent preamp. Leger breath pushing earnings and eq. EQ section is effective but even when far from a Midas.


Bought new 8000 francs in the 90's, it relatively silent, and complements the correct era, since of course there bcp better. She now serves mlangeur big for my external sources. Finally, she would have made me well on many services provided, and despite her age she still want the road: a single channel mono is HS. Exceeds the stuff but robust.

Rackable: no.

On I / O, everything is very well Describes prcdemment.


Configuration without any problem, we copied without using any manual (I've never had).

The routing and connectivity are trs simple, and allows many opportunities for the well-sr live, recording, mix: basically nothing wrong.

Its size is plutt impressive given the number of slices, it is not forcment practice in all situations, for against, it is ergonomically plutt, the pots of colors (pastels) are easily identifiable.

Only small BMOL: the faders are not trs sweet, especially those of sub-groups.


The console is plutt transparent, no less breath to push really gains, the default is effective legalization of being more complte (one semi-Settings, but it the lot of all the consoles of this range of benefits). The low-cut s'avre useful in a lot of situations.


I use it for 8 years prs, buy OCCAZ of around 5000 francs the era, it does what is asked of him.

No cracking problem, only the section for sending to is sometimes capricious (sending only one ct a Stereo Auxiliary).

Report qualitprix flawless, no loss since the purchase, did not skip a slice has been used extensively in the studio and is still used now in collection outdoor - condition of street theater: dusts, moisture.

Sr Although there are much better now, but it is of great strength and reliability.

See specifications below


Simple configuration CF French manual mode style garden gnome Cad very clear.

Everything is very intuitive, except perhaps the Monitoring section.


The console is pretty clear except as stated below the Aux send/returns, which often spit - see quality potentiometers ...

The equalizer is just enough in my opinion. Especially working in mid-bass and bass.
The semi-parametric medium goes from 250Hz - 6kHz which is too tight.
Anyway it sounds much better than a bunch of low end today's EQ's.
And I particularly like the sound of the low EQ, wich really gives more fullness and presence to bass.


Since 1994, home studio and now I work more as a pre-digital mixer.

Over time I had the opportunity to try Allen & Heath or Midas and I gladly trade it against an equivalent model of the marks.

Surely I would do this choice because at the time there were not so many brands on the market for small ergonomic consoles.

What I like most is his versatility (4 Subgroups, 8 aux sends and a lot of inserts), despite all of his EQ sound, and part of its manufacture.

What I like least the low end potentiometers (one of the Monitor Level has been changed by me) and undersized power supply to the power consumption of the console. (Transformer has been changed some months ago by me too:))

Buy a console like that in good condition at less than 300 € today is interesting.
Buying it at 1000 € (new one's price in those days) is a gentle joke today.
