Good product

Bought this console for our band and I have to say that we are thrilled by its capacities. We actually upgraded from Soudcraft UI16 to this one in order to get the internal soundcard for session recording.

Once you setup your tablet or phone, it is very easy of use and has really good features (gates, comp etc). The fact that every single channel has an equalizer (even all 8 monitors channels) is pretty handy.

The preamps are clean and can be pushed to a quite good level before you can hear any distortion.

The GUI is alright for most of it ( I stongly suggest to watch the videos on soundcraft's website though, you can learn a lot)

Some other features are rather difficult to access, you need a very good comprehension of your system (example: getting monitoring while recording might be a bit tricky to get at first or setting up groups and view groups).

We haven't tried it on a gig so far but the Wi-Fi signal is strong and stable so it should work great.

This is a very good console for an amateur band that want to tour and slef-produce.

Pros:

Lightweight

Easy/ready to use

Good quality

Perfect for gigs in small clubs/tours

Cons:

Some features a bit tricky to find out
