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.
