The ddx digital mixer has all the standard studiotools on board, like channel delay, gate, compressor, effects, and even phase reverse. It's just a complete production package, can't think of something missing. the expansion slots give you the opportunity to hook up adat , tdif en aes-ebu equipment. In the near future , i'm going to install a adat board in the ddx and in my pc, so i can record up to 32 channels digital audio on my computer. Wow, at that price!!
Price paid: 1399 euro
Not much has to be said here, very easy! I started without reading the manual. Offcourse, when you're a newbie in studioland, it's neccessary to read the manual. But hey, why should you buy such an advanced device then?
Well, let's be honest, it's not a yamaha o2r96, but i'm not owning a 1 milion professional studio. For semi professional use, especialy when you won't make any acoustic recordings, it's perfect. I believe the pre amps, can be of better quality.But in my situation, only line gear is connected except for one condensor mic. And even that one sounds great! effects are pretty good, but i wont sell my lexicon! dynamics are a bit lame, better use the inserts to route them to youre analog compressor. But in most circumstances, they are pretty usefull.
The first range of analog behringer mixers were not that robust. but i have to say, this one is just as robust as e.g. the yamaha o1v, wich i recently laid my hands on for a mixjob. No negative comments here!
i love it!!!! Because of it's price it's a perfect substitute for the more expensive mixers from e.g. yamaha. I own it just for a few days, but this is the best buy i made in years!

Hello, this table m'interresse, I am currently working on analog and Yamaha Promix, I wanted to have a little precision on "32 full channels" annocs by behringer. Is it among 32 or 16? Why announce 32 channels if not to find 16 "virtual"? thank you for m'clairer on this point is clear: he ia how much of enter (mic / line; stro) and outputs (all outputs) ?? bcp thank you
a few gaps in the paramtrage (compared to 01V96), I find it very complte (unless also among the spdif in and hits that take up among others).
Very easy to use, I find it very intuitive. (Easier than yamaha o it sometimes gets lost in the menus if you do not use the same model all the time)
The pramps are transparent (no breath (-72 with the substantive gains - calculus with my HDSP9652 RME ADAT))
The converters are very well (sound recordings sound good in general)
For almost 5 years of use (and yes, I bought the very beginning 2000 with the ADAT card! So do not complain about the price quality for I am very happy even this price (except now the 01V96 is almost the same price as the DDX3216 there 5 years 500 1000 see prs) I have never encountered worries, even at ventillo who has never made a monster sound! (perhaps the first models were stronger than 600 new versions!)
