I bought this mixer in the 1990s to mix a drumset (8 tracks), a guitar (1 track), a bass (1 track) and two stereo keyboards (4 tracks). No integrated FX but 2 busses and 16 tracks with faders, gain knobs hi mid and lo settings, 3 auxes and pan setting. 1 track on/off, one buss change per track and a PFL. A buss junction, 2 mix faders per buss, 3 auxes in pre or post mix, a headphone volume setting, 16 mono inputs (four of them assignable 2-by-2 to stereo tracks). One insert per track. Plus, it’s made by Soundcraft, which can be seen when you consider how long it resists time in spite of all it went through. I got the faders cleaned up by a specialist for 25 bucks, and now it’s like brand new.
A real mixing jewel.
