«  A very good console for home studio, I'm super happy! »

First of all, before you start I want to apologize for some of the words I use. Because occasionally I'll use my words well. I'm not a pro.

This is a console that has 10 mono inputs + 4 stereo inputs. The stereo inputs I use to connect to my effects. Entries monos I use to connect to my microphone, my bass and my keyboard .. On all mono channels there is also an input / output insert is very convenient because it allows me to connect my alesis compressor, both for my voice and for both my bass!
On all inputs there are 4 auxiliary outputs allow the sound in the slice to send to devices that are connected to the auxiliary out. I do not know if I'm very clear .. On all inputs there is also a frequency corrector with a button to select the frequency. Again it's great practice! There is also a button called pan used to pan the sound (I do not know whether to say it like that, plus it's not very pretty as word). In fact it means we can move the sound to the left or right. There is also a mute button that mutes the sound of a single shot! After there is a button called pfl used to listen with headphones the sound in a slice. For against what is unfortunate is that it does not take into account the panning (even when it is not nice at all that word! Whether you have another word that has the same meaning to offer me I'm all ears! ). And still there after the faders (finally a word I would almost pass for a pro!).
There is an exit out hand which allows me to connect the console to control both speakers. A usb plug used to connect the console to a computer by choosing what you want to send. Besides the console I was sold with the software sonar.


It is accessible enough for a beginner like me, so I guess for the pros it should be a breeze! That said there are still some features that seem still rather vague. But nothing insurmountable either!


I think the sound of this console is really good. Even though I have not much in comparison, it's very nice! And it does change a lot of my old behringer! I love the offset frequency is smooth and precise. Actually I found the sound of my bass, my voice is also easier to work with, and my keyboards are also pleased. Anyway my beats, my voice and I swim in happiness!


I use this console for 1 year. And I am perfectly satisfied! She brings to daily life a real pleasure to use! And frankly with it I rediscovered my instruments. I bought it used for less than 300 € and honestly at this price it was a great occas'. In addition unlike my old behringer, not only the sound has nothing to do, but it is more robust. In a word, I love it!
