All-in-one mixing package for studio and live
I bought this unit mainly to be used for drum recordings due to the high number of inputs the unit had. After playing with it for a bit I found the amount of features available a bit overwhelming as I am more familiar with analog gear.
The unit itself is sleek looking and all of the I/O's are easily accessible. Only downside in design that i found was the positioning of the power switch which is difficult to reach when the unit is rack mounted.
Getting started is super simple: Connect your devices, set gain, set volume, boom. The fact that this unit has a real time spectrum analyzer for each channel, makes EQing drums a breeze. I haven't yet fully explored all the features of this unit but from a first impressions standpoint, I am impressed. I am looking forward to doing live mixes with this mixer.
The only negative thing I found was the internal WiFi dropping in and out from time to time, but this was fixed by using the internal LAN port when doing longer sessions. The machine remembers your settings and no device is needed for startup.
Sound Quality is transparent with minimal hiss.
