Mixer 16 track (12 Neutrik XLR with phantom power, 8 line, 8 stereo)
Inserts on the line taken
six tracks with one-knob compressors
two buses "send (pre / post and post) and an effect bus
two buses in the mix

Parametric equalizer on 8-track "line"

A USB port plug and play


If the manual is a little light for someone who never touched a table, it is easily accessible for someone with experience.
Hours of operation will be necessary to perfect novice to identify the operation in depth ..


The table sounds quite well.

by usb it introduces, however, a significant blow when the level is somewhat low. C why it will still work using the maximum available signal

For the rest, the equalizer and small compressors are efficient


I use it for two years and am perfectly satisfied.

The highlight of this console is its versatility: it offers many connections so that you can easily connect. It has built-in compressors and booster effects which are always nice.

She did not intend to strictly home-studio owners who prefer a more effective interface, but more versatile musician.

for the many opportunities it offers, yes I would do this choice. (I originally hesitated between it and the Multimix 16 usb Alesis for its ability to export 16 tracks simultaneously cons 2 for my Yamaha. But to this day, I found the Alesis a little too light ...)
