This is a rackmount console thanks mtallique part two screws that are on the console (pratique. ..), it possde 4 slices and 4 other Stros Monos, Les monos 4 all have pramps, only two of the Stros in a possde.
The connectors are XLR for mic level, TRS line (left and right spar for slices Stros) There is an RCA input for a CD player in addition to such units.
The two slices dernire stro also entries in CAR
The equalizer is graphic and three bands (100 Hz, 1.2kHz and 12kHz if my memory is good)
There is a group Stereo (2x Output Jack)
The bus output XLR Stereo possde and Jack
The output control room is 2 Jacks.
2 input jacks and AUX returns the first ... TO can be pre or post the second one has no choice
Inserts on each slice with pramp using a TRS
So on this point to say anything I think the connectors are therefore a horizontal takes more space but do not damage the cables, I prfre.


Well it works like an analog console, so it trs simple if you know what a slice, a bus, AUX, a Control Room and all a. .. Fawn any manual is quite well done, it is even enough pdagique and there are several typical configuration ...
Get used to the "ON" button is actually an anti-mute, so it is lit when the sound goes on while the console is a full-Mute button that must be dyed to let the sound. Well we did everything, and then a console that shines across it even prettier when!

I use it in mlangeur source and control room with a sound card FA101. Stro bus / control room is in my speakers, the groups and to the line inputs of my cards. I put a small section BMOL the control room that does not allow a great flexibility in the choice of sources.


The transparency of the online console trs seems satisfactory, I tried with a cd player directly into the monitors and then through the console, I felt the diffrence is not really significant ...
Pramp level is just under a. .. They blow a little so do not push the pramp further than two-thirds if we begin to perceive nettemment enough, but with my SM58 RULES of the sensitivity is 11 am and goes well trs trs fort without singing. A little but it's not at all ... Gnant Grain pramp is not tip top. Trs is flat, too soft or Retailer trs. We feel that this is not the world's finest what, but at the same time the Entire table costs the same as a good pramp.
The Eq is a little dirty but hey it can do its taff, low plutt are well chosen, are to mdium 2/3kHz the acute to 10 or 12kHz n'approte but not very bright s trs pretty. If you want to do a nice job of EQ it will have to insert a ...


I use it for two years to mix, cost of zik, record vocals, guitar, drums etc ... and frankly I had OCCAZ 160 I do not regret it. It much bigger than a Behringer, Alto, or a Mackie but I like it a more stable, the knobs are spaced further apart .... It is a very dark blue class and gay colors a little knobs all mtalis gray world ... I chose a little blind thanks to the advice and guidance on AF and another that possdent of the SERIES MODELS. For the price it's really good trs, much quieter than Behringer, it certainly possde of breath even if it is low trs (on the order of -75 dB roughly s) and much more reliable.

If I had the choice again today I do it again may be the same, or I sell my FA101 and the MG to look into the firewire console to have better pramp. Over time a lightweight I sometimes loose connection at the switch "group" in the control room section that I cut the left lane, I fiddle with the bouont and sound returns. Well, it is not functional CHRE and trs is a compromise to the quality of assembly and pramps ... Cel said I did everything to suggest budgets 150/200
