Value For Money : Excellent
Yes this is rackable and this is the way I have used.
(By the way it is super light).

This is a console 8 Mono + 4 Stereo. Sold for 16 tracks but beware only 12 tracks.
4 For: It is light but it is a small console is sold as such is no inconsistency.

The EQ is a bit light for only 3 frequencies consoles and a 31-band EQ for output.
For AUX EQ 31 bands not to manage any Larsens on returns must be

The compression / limiter & co are easily accessible and parameterize for each band.

I like the MONO output for wedge ... and back, it is convenient.

The sampling ranges from 44.1 to 48KHz, but it sounds really good and natural.


The setup is great but you have to enter it (ie read the manual :-)).
Once this investment in playback time is it becomes very easy to use.

No need to sub menus on a screen that serves almost as the effect settings and reminders stage everything is at hand a maximum click. It is appreciable live when to go fast.

What I like most about this console is the ability to juggle the settings for the console, PC and iPAD. It's great to be able to manage the EQ on the screen seeing the response curve.

More application available on iPhone allows me to give everyone the opportunity to directly set its own auxiliary ... Gone are the days where everyone waits his turn to ask a bit more bass, a little less guitar, more voices. I sync their iPhone with the computer and all drives ....

Only drawback you need a computer connected.


I use this console to ... of live.
I am very happy rendering in this context.
The sound is excellent with a nice dynamic.

No breath, but I did not make a disc with ...


Acquired in August and sold last month to finance 16.4.2.
For my part I think this little console is a success because

Who needed more slices and AUX I went to the model above.
But it is not the same price.

So if the number of channels and outputs you will it is a very good quality / price ratio.
Its ease of use that we have no need to spend a permit navigation in menus
as in other models (01vXX & al.)

This allows you to concentrate on her and not on how I do.

Moreover it allows to record 16 channels simultaneously without latency via Fireware ....

Warning my opinion applies only to the live.
Not having used studio I have no opinion on the matter.
