    Master section: a section control room / full monitor (for two monitoring systems), a Solo / PFL system, the Aux Return catches Inserts section, two main outputs (XLR gold contact) on the Master out, VU meters etc ...

    A default, however: no talkback circuit.

    The big plus: Absolutely everything about the console is symmetric, Inputs, Outputs, Aux, Master.

    UTILIZATION

    Config and very simple installation of the FW, no drivers needed on Mac (class compliant) card.

    Console easy to use, it is damn good visually, you see everything quickly, the knobs are spaced one navigates with ease.

    SOUNDS

    The big plus of this console is its fully symmetrical design.

    The signal to noise ratio is excellent and dynamic range.
    This is an excellent summation to mix in analog, far superior in sound quality to Malcolm Toft example. There is even a mastering studio in Australia that uses main console ... (Dixit TLA).
    To use the console is very "quiet" as the English say, well made, sturdy and very quiet (for the analog).
    The mic / line preamp is good, not as "punchy" in the world of course, but good.
    The although limited in its possibilities of equalizer settings is great, musical and sweet. This is more of an EQ for "color" instead of Eq to "clean." It is better to bosser in "positive" (+) with.

    Defects: quality fader improved, no talkback circuit.

    The conversion quality of the card level is consistent - much better than a digi 002 or 003 for example - but it is not at Prism Sound converters or other type. Logic ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    After almost two years of use, I am really happy.
    This console is an excellent analog adder that has nothing to envy to other summing more prestigious brand (SPL Audio phoenis or other). The console is compact, well built and has a real signature sound (rather soft).
    If you mix your projects from one DAW ironing inside you will really feel the difference ...
    There are symmetrical inserts everywhere, so you can easily use your outboard. I have such an Alan Smart C2 permanently connected to the master outputs of inserts and it works really well.
    This console mix with outboard quality is really a good choice.

    On conversion card FW I'm more skeptical against ... Better buy this console for what it is, namely a real analog console and pay real Prism converters, Lynx, Apogee or another. The best of two worlds ...

    This small TLA M1-F is underestimated in my opinion. Its price on the used market seems to me below the objective quality of the beast (although better than Malcolm Toft). A 2500 € argus occasion is a matter is on. If futures TLAudio decides to stop manufacturing is no doubt that the price on the second hand market will rise .... And there are very few products of this type currently.

    I suggest you try it ...

    12 channel console very simple!
    UNESCORecords but rather to record and sum the signals from a mobile station numrique

    UTILIZATION

    I use it with an apogee digi003R converted by AD 8000 in I / O with optional DAC and a universal audio 2192 for the master out,
    I do not have the option adat on the console!
    Entirely symmetrical, with two choices of control room, 2 in (the minimum), 3-band EQ simple but effective color.
    All knobs are very pleasing, the console is heavy and the air is all solid and beautifully finished.

    SOUNDS

    SOUNDS

    Super,
    good signal to noise ratio, the same pre amp background does not produce excessive saturation and color of the lamp on the circuit remains soft between the pre amp is not the world champion gain of, but it can work with little microphones all ready, even if with my Beyer M130 ribbon, the gain is really not far from the max
    Console breathes, the summation is excellent, the additive EQ is superb, this is not a Eq prcisment made to remove the default, it is an EQ to color for the rest better dale Eq use a plug in!
    Eq is really great on acoustic and electric guitars, strings, machines, a bit limited for vocals, drums and bass,
    too bad there have not a selector allowing frquence worse for the low fixed filter (63Hz type).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am very satisfied,
    is the machine I need,
    transportable srieuse, with a nice sound, very quick, easy and free gadget!
    All inserts are symmetrical, balanced XLR master output GOLD
    lgre a color and sound very natural in normal mixing, if we push all the lights and color are more violently compress the signal,
    the sound is not as sweet as the Toft ATB console it replaces, the EQ soon silent as the most comprehensive and truly bleuffant, but soon buzzit so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!
    in the end I am very happy with my TL Audio
    I'm not saying that if a spell soon ATB cohrente really, I repeat but not one, but with a master output jack, ground loops and inserts throughout asymmetrical, I prefer my little TL Audio cohrente more!
