there has an effects section but I used very little.
use is very easy even for a beginner like me enough to read the instructions or to have better explanations that I made a pro!
Not being professional I prefer not give my opinion on this point.
I use it for 2 years!
this is my first console.
most is its ability to increase the input (possibility to put several pair of turntables and live at the same time)
the q / p ratio is more than reasonable to me.
ooo yes I would do this choice!
