yannsun's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good little console"

Soundcraft FX16II
It is rack mountable with the addition of plates &
There is a source effect section Lexicon, fairly comprehensive and configurable
16 inputs, each with XLR mic, jack line jack insert, direct out for multitrack recording
Bass EQ, parametric on the medium, treble, + 100Hz highpass
1 stereo sub group (prtatique for voice, for example) with its insert
3 aux sends, 4 stereo returns to


Easy to take control, not really need the manual, which is available in French for those who are not familiar with the language of Shakespeare


Overall this is a console that has a good sound, little breath, effective equalization.


Used to the sound of live bands in a bar (its many different ingestion) for 12 years, it was changed once there three years, so a satisfactory life.
It was chosen for its ease of handling, and its compactness.
Good value for money, and yes we would buy another.

Soundcraft FX16II
For specifications, just read the datasheet to realize that it has all the functions you need in any config ... It is intended for a console do ANYTHING!

This console is especially well designed because countless opportunities for connections. (16 out)
This is also what gives this aspect because of its imposing rear panel connections open! It has everything you want and more!
Routing is very flexible.


Ultra simple: it is the analog effects processor excellent.
One button, one function ...
Manual childish
Processor LEXICON simple, efficient and above all difficult!


So then you'll understand what it is that SOUNDCRAFT ANALOG SOUND!
Equa way is fine
No breath (I use a map in the studio with RME Fireface UCX) detected to date


I use it for two years after owning one CFX16, an ONYX and many other less serious.
Plus: THE SOUND This is amazing! Deep, with grain, tinted as we like, really analog ... You send it in the computer and you appear blank!

I am ready to fight against anyone who wants to take me!
Seriously, if you need a small console that does everything with his magic ... go for it!

Simple as an analog console everything is under the eyes so easy and accessible all levels except the connection that is the ass of the machine.


Quite right console, stiff hair, lacks a bit of roundness.
Much less cold than 01V to give you an idea.
Transparent, I'd rather do. We are in the midrange therefore will but it is not the ultimate heat!

No breath against report by the qualisation is correct without exceptional being. I'm doing very well despite all live in all situations regardless of the instrument repiqu.

For effects, it's not bad, certainly much adpanne.


I've had more than 6 months. I once had an MG16fx Yamaha. We are well above in terms of sound, effect especially eq.
on the other hand, more knobs in faade, so may make some foulli instantly.
Maybe a little lack of fishing for pramps that give the feeling of lacking only feature.
Around 700 euros I find a bit expensive but good, the connection is in numbers, it can be used both in small home studio than live. Everything is not nearly the same level: eq, effects connectors. There's no strong points nor major weaknesses.

For my group sound use in small rooms, it is well-filled small role of good enough quality console.

Finally, I'd say she did a good job for making simple things without taking the cabbage: small clubs, small tournes ...
Maybe a little chre. I would see a rather new 600 euros.
