Digital 8-track non-rackable, four mono microphone inputs and 2 stereo line inputs, all are jack asymtriques 6.35, 2 mono outputs (L, R) and a headphone out, optical S / PDIF and finally one to send.

Three-band EQ
Sampling A / D 20 bit 64x Upscaling
N / A 24-bit 128x Upscaling

A multi effects reverb chorus classic ASP ... (No compressor)

Lack of phantom power supply

UTILIZATION

The manual (in french ...) is very clear, although the majority of the image but will include the usual functions without him as the use of the console is simple, the ACCS and the equalization effects made with six buttons and a jog very practical; them is very ergonomic. There is a small screen to view the levels etc.
By CHAC against the back side to connect the jacks and especially for setting the pre-amp microphone is not obvious.

SOUNDS

The reverb effects are great desire to change, however, used a background they can still slightly DENATURING signal. ditto for the chorus and flanger o can really play on all parameters, feedbac, mod delay ...
The converters can concurencer without blushing sometimes more expensive models of the Competition, but the opening of the microphone pre-amp may seem difficult to resolve (the saturation comes quickly on guitars or synthesizers).
The equalization is when it is basic (three bands) and we must take the risk of moderately degrade the sound too.

OVERALL OPINION

It still around Fr 1800 (280 Euros) and for that price is no contest: no breath, nice effects certainly classics, but at least they do not drool and are fully customizable, and its transparent pre-amp but delicate ( we can not have everything) I use it through the optical output on my PC and my old sound card compares Hoontech dsp24/adda2000 the sound obtained is out of proportion.
The absence of compressors can be'd choose now for a more upscale model.
