No comments about the well-known features.

UTILIZATION

Extremely easy to use: my user's manual is rotting somewhere.

Pros:

Scene editing

Display

Effects

Cons:

Perhaps the preamps

SOUNDS

This mixing desk sounds good.

I bought it secondhand and I had heard some negative comments before buying it, but its sound surprised me. I find it punchy and very versatile.

The mixer is reliable and sturdy considering its price (please spare me the comparisons with an SSL or a Neve, which are totally different products).

I use it with a HDR24/96 and it's a breeze!

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for several months in my home studio. I also have two Yamaha 02-R to compare it to.

The mixer seems to be less sturdy than the Yamahas. The sound is very different but pleasant.

I don't use the converters because my Motu converters sound better. I use this mixer only to mix.

I manage all recordings with my PC and a control surface.

The value for money is unbeatable and if the mixer ever gets broken I'll run to the shop to buy a second one.

A small turnoff is that the OS upgrades are not free, which I find unacceptable. Mackie has an awful sales policy regarding this.

This mixer is incredible.

Price paid: $8,999.00 (now much less)

Sound is improved with additional Plug -ins and Apogee Word Clock card purchased seperately.

Its very easy to use and the manual is clear yet in depth.

You must be gentle with this board.

I love this board!

Well I give my opinion only because frankly the lack of objectivity of people annoys me.

I will not notice anything is too long sorry!

UTILIZATION

It's super simple and intuitive who had on February 1 st and with a current 96i 01v. I can tell you that the converter are great on the Mackie and that cake to use.

Not need the manual. It is so obvious that even added an adat in 2 click.

SOUNDS

The effects are not bad and if you like there is not enough to add to external effects.

The converters are not bad, already better than the 02 r v2. The dynamics are good.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for 1 year and a half.

+ I liked its ease of use, sound really bad, the overall management of the number of the software.

- The size of the lives not just in small place. The software a bit slow.

We can have cheap frankly if it is for the rehearsal or studio is cool secondhand. For the live a little less.
