    Digital 24-bit 48KHz
    Operation with Cubase SX2 without worry! (If you pass a little time to parameterize the controller with cubase)

    UTILIZATION

    This is where I found this console more than well! Having bump on several digital consoles, I must admit (unlike other reviews) that the grip is rather fast and intuitive! In case of problems, a look in the manual and here we go again. For me, the visual is ample and clear (again contrary to other opinions) and the reading is done without concern (knobs, seen, if only one pan ,...) place well ahead.

In case of problems, a look in the manual and here we go again. For me, the visual is ample and clear (again contrary to other opinions) and the reading is done without concern (knobs, seen, if only one pan ,...) place well ahead.

    SOUNDS

    For converters, a certain coldness should be noted, but probably due to good quality, but a lack of personality on the following electronic! Is this really a defect to us who are perpetually looking for a great quality? EQ side, nothing to report the disturbance, properly adjusted, they work without worry (again contrary to other opinions) side dynamics, for the price it goes well above other console even OCCAZ sell more expensive ( like 01 ...) I have taken the "pros" on utlisées def prods and I defy anyone to hear the difference! (After some treatment on some apps that I would mention it ...)
    I drop a little note to my lack of particular color in the sound (but not at Neve!)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months and I am more than satisfied as it follows me without any problems for pro prods.
    I like the speed of work and mastery, and the good momentum for this award.
    I like the least effect because too .... cheap! (Nothing to do with the lexicon eventide or ..) but they can be of great help in some cases.
    For the price, I would not hesitate to repeat this choice because it is out of all situations with varying degrees of success.
    For my part, I sold it to move to a smaller config because I work on larger than that in the studio, and I want the bare minimum with me!

    For specifications, see the notice or other behringer site ... Frankly for the price it's downright insane, almost three times cheaper than 01V96, and has not to be ashamed of its features (even if it does not work in 24/96).
    But ...... The build quality is more than average, which explains the note

    UTILIZATION

    Operation is very simple, very intuitive and the manual is not too bad.

    SOUNDS

    Converters ok (it's not Peru but for the price).
    effects are pathetic, especially those who manage the dynamics (compressor in particular). The eqs troubleshoot, but that's it.
    The reverbs .... better to spend its way as the rest of the effects

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it for almost a year and frankly ....
    She had an original default (power supply failure that caused the screen) and after 2 REDUCED both sav, I'm so cracked that I request a refund at the store. The features are nice, the price very interesting but there's a reason. After talking to a lot of stores, most of them admits to having had problems with this console.
    For the price, look at the Yamaha 01V to OCCAZ, maybe a little less good on paper but honestly much more reliable.

    UTILIZATION

    Unlike other opinion, it is very simple and far more ergonomic than o1v.
    Having used all consoles and numriques yamaha it, live, studio, small scne style piano bar or large type scne 20kW, no worries, and a quick extra.

    SOUNDS

    The converters are nice but too cold, which is why I couple with two converters a rack lamp.
    Effects and are equa to live, but not in the studio.
    The dynamic works as it should, but always with the problem of coldness.

    For the price, the best plan of march.

    Come from the world of analog, it did not take me more than half an hour to get used to it. The use is very intuitive: you select a track and there is everything you want.
    The routing possibilities are virtually endless.

    The effects are very useful and very often interressants in my case.
    "Very good" to ehancer, the Plate reverb and the stereo chorus.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two months now and I do not know how I have waited so long to buy it.
    For the price (650 € in MusicStore) is the best console that can be found.

    I am not at all agree with the last review (which I suspect the author had never touched the table). The DDX3216 a very good restaurant with a quality / price ratio unbeatable ...

    I would do it again in a picosecond choice ;-)

    SOUNDS

    Its rather cold, not great converters! The fever is "screaming" no finesse in the high frquences Mylen The argument at the legalization ... having said that given the precision of qualisation is normal!
    M'tendrais I do not simply about the effects of "toys" I got quality level but this can add more points thanks to the inserts on analog channels.
    The compressor is pretty good and by a more even if it is still rather brutal in its application and the gate a lot and also available on each channel but be warned it is a gate and not a noise gate that allows choose the normal frquence but considering the price of the console in it even.

    OVERALL OPINION

    That makes three and a half years that I possde, she provides good service despite the problem of reliability of the power supply certainly, I could compare it with a Tascam DM 24 and c ' is the day and night of course!
    I prfre this product is the ratio quality price and ultra easy grip
    With the exprience I would do no not have that choice for this lack of warmth in the sound especially compared to the DM 24 is now 2100 new without Bargraph, it is certainly 3x more expensive but if you your demanding on the quality of its go your way.
    Against you by your just a fan and looking for a price above all, go there with closed eyes!

    UTILIZATION

    Dja-for anyone who used a mix numrique table using the DDX is a breeze, trs intuitive for those coming from analog must well faloir 5 / 10 minutes more to get used to the concept;)
    I do not remember not having opened the manual

    SOUNDS

    -I found rather transparent converters, taken on acoustic 12-string with a large diaphragm microphone Chinese, trs aproach its really natural sound (at least the end of what my ears still hear saturax guitar sound natural)
    Trs pramplis them are clean as broadly comparable to those of my digi 002
    For effects-not bad sharck the dsp (the Memme than creamware, or on some amps high ranges like H & K Zenter) do their job but nothing more, for against the fact that there is a dynamic section for each is really great.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I can use it for a prs 3 months
    Most:

    - Dynamic per
    - 4 multis can DPAN
    - The "meter band" at the fader Intgr
    - Small and flexible
    Price-quality RAPORT absolutely unbeatable on the nine

    les:

    -The fact that the input output S / P DIF are not assignable or you want *
    -That the e / s numriques spares either otpion (since 16 tracks of their consoles are DDIS)
    -Number of analog output limits 6 and spares including 4 rpart bus / to
    The fan-not silencieu.
    -Not compatible pro tools (especially since their last mulate the control surface so it'll have HUI probably not much more expensive to upgrade a kit like Mackie HUI has for its control surface)

    Response to sebdu25:

    The console is "capable" of 32 inputs and 16 independent outputs.
    But like all digital consoles, it is equipped with only a few inputs and outputs "physical", the other inputs and outputs by a digital means of digital interfaces to plug in the back of the console.

    For the 32 entries, it is necessary to add racks of physical inputs converting analog signals into digital signals, and connect their digital output interfaces plugged into the console.

    Originally from the console comes with:
    Entries: 12 mono inputs with XLR mic preamp (+ jacks) and 2 stereo line inputs (4 Jacks).

    Outputs: 2 MAIN outputs, 4 outputs patchable (eg, auxiliary) and two digital stereo outputs also patchable, Phone +, Control Room, etc..

    Extensions possible:
    Can be added such as a rack and ADA8000 Pro8 Digital Interface ADT1616.
    We then have 8 inputs mono mic / line and 8 extra XLR line outputs further.
    So a total of 20 mono inputs + stereo inputs of the console.

    You can still add a new rack ADA8000 connected to the same interface ADT1616.
    We then have 8 inputs mono mic / line and 8 extra XLR line outputs further.

    So a total of 28 mono inputs + 4 stereo inputs of the console, making good 32 independent input channels. But we will more than double the budget entry ...

    As for outputs, we then have taken much more "physical" than the 16 independent output channels that computer console can handle.
    We must therefore decide to send signals to each outlet.

    I do not know this particular point, but I feel that we can send to choose one of 16 digital channels on each physical outputs available. On the score of 20 out multiple broadcast the same signal.

    32 inputs and 16 independent outputs in this small volume and the price is not bad! ...

    The meters on each slice to be very practical and multi-function knobs make a lot of service.

    SOUNDS

    The 12 pramp are transparent but lack a bit of momentum, which is easily corrected with the compressors, eqs (4 bands paramtriques) and gate of each slice. The converters are fairly sound and cohrents round (much better than the company 01V and my taste more than 2,500 are more than dcevantes ...) no pb clock and sync (same if it is better to clock in on the word prsonus for example), sound effects plutt not bad, except some reverb in the long values ​​.... The connection is rather poor (as on all others) but with 16 channels of ADAT cards 190
    but happiness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it to record sound and moving a couple presonus digimax, PC (Nuendo) and 24 HD for about a year. By comparing it to Yamaha (01V, 02R ...) I use rgulirement I think it sounds far too good (or better). The weak points for me are:
    - The only way spdif assignable 13/14
    - The failure to process (compress eq fx) and 16 internal buses that serve ultimately as subgroups
    - The quality of production remains below the trs MODELS Japanese and others (especially do not open !!!!!!!).
    I think even when it's a great product (no competitor on the market!) 575 and ashamed for our German friends: what more?
