Midas VeniceU VU16
- Model comes with rack mounting brackets, the method detailed in the manual.
- XLR and jack connectors for all inputs very (cool) (more details on the different lower jack), two RCA (in / out)
- No effect but excellent eq (I will return).
- Direct outputs.
- Insert on all mono (12) inputs and all outputs, groups and busses (yes!!) Apart from auxiliaries.

On the jack (including symmetric or TRS) https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_% 29% 28prise


- The configuration is very simple, I have a little misery for multi-track via USB.
- The manual is convenient for all the hard part, however the soft part is the solitude.
- The usual functions are all accessible.
- Countless possibilities for routing.
- The gain knob is' achement pleasant passage, like the rest of the knobs and faders though we may regret the size of eq.
- The different busses are super practical and very clean, they have an insert, such as inputs (except hybrid stereo, stereo mode) and most outputs.
- The stereo inputs are switchable to mono (mic or line, great) and in this case have an insert but "suffering" of a 4 non-parametric bands.
- The are configurable for pre / post
- The busses monitors (2) are pre / post eq (cool to send the usb).
- The stereo channels can be "overide" by usb.
- The stereo returns (2 symmetrical) have a dedicated knob (20 dB) as well as buttons for selection / of busses (groups 1 and 2, 3 and 4 + master mono and stereo master).
- The matrix is ​​a good idea, and also allows flexible breathe when you have a twisted idea behind the head, at least the following console routing level.
- The eq, which are detachable (super cool, that) are a bit small but hey, at this price and given their sound quality ...
- The 4 groups can operate in stereo pairs.
- The meters (tricolor LEDs) on each entry are practical, and across the screen and the lights are well thought out (they do not tear their eyes).
- Input talk back is super clean, the mic input is placed at the top right, next to a 4-pin XLR for a lamp, practice.
- In my config, solo work as pfl shipments for the headphone, they are real solos when "local" outputs are used, if I understand correctly, in my case the monitorings are connected to the stereo master bus.
- Please note, asio drivers of Venice U are not compatible with Ableton, in the present state of things. They are with the other software that I have tried (Reaper, Studio One, Wavelab).


- The console is clean, all the entries are very jack and suddenly need to enter in his own good, and it gets interesting to pick up a hum eliminator rack or di has several inputs (the board comes Beginner capture a thing ;)).
- I have not much knowledge in preamp, all I know is when I like or when I do not like those offered on this console are super clean (twice) and offer 60 + dB gain bonus with a nice distortion or saturation, great for drums, the overload is supported by the unit according to the manufacturer. everything is very clean.
- EQ is one of the highlights of this console, 4 band parametric on mic / mono and 4 stereo bands set on the frequency bands are well thought out, in my humble opinion (75/300/3000/12000) even if I would have preferred 75/200 for the low EQ can compensate for the lack of low cut on the stereo inputs.

I can not make a super detailed stuff, ca take me ages, but basically this mixer has a great fishing is very clean and runs fastoche the whims of guys like me, routing level.


- I use it for 2 months.
- I have tried a lot of consoles all costs, this says this is the first console a little above that I have.
- I really like the preamp, eq, routing, groups, balanced inputs, inserts, 8x8 via usb, robustness and look ...
- The Incompatibility with ableton has broken my ouebs as they say.
- The Q / P is insane, saw the possibilities and sound.

In conclusion, this mixer inherits the expertise of the brand and offers a lot of possibilities, which makes it very comfortable inside and out and allows home studio to move to a slightly more pro quality not super expensive. Its strengths are many and the sound is clean with a big fishing and good headroom. As for the preamp, they are unexpected considering the price and see what comes out even pushed up the gain. It is the same for inputs mono Eq. Screen printing is very convenient, the look calls for the creation and weight and robustness tranquility. All exudes strength and allows it to be fast and accurate and forget who is the new owner of the brand!

Périf interesting if it was full of synths and qq meters of cables and PSU (and it gets mess noise level):
