Overall: This is my first sand alone ALL digital mixer so I have nothing previous to compare it to. Having said that my only warning to anyone looking at this is there is a relatively steep learning curve. There is a USB port for multi track recording to a computer or iPad, but the audio signal path is access ONLY thru wifi on a computer, iPad or Android device. Getting past the wifi connection, the depth of control is massive and can be overwhelming. Every channel has built in phantom power if needed, a gate, compressor, EQ, Level, Panning and 4 Aux sends. On a physical mixer, this amount of knobs can look intimidating, and in the digital world it can be equally so. Getting past the complexity, the main reason for this device is the amount of channels and the quality of the sound. For the price, I don't think anything touches the number of inputs and the quality of the preamps is far greater than the price would suggest. The channels sound clear and clean with no noise even at high gain levels. There are a lot of videos online that give tutorials on how to use this beast and be prepared to watch them as mixer has very little included documentation. But that's what the internet is for right? There is a better manual/web page online as well. It may not be simple, but it a great piece of gear and except for the complexity, I can't imagine anyone being unhappy with this mixer's quality and flexibility. 16 input channels (all individually record accessible), 6 physical aux sends, dozens of effects for delay, reverb, compressor, eq, overdrive, leslie speaker and more, midi and USB connectivity.

Overall: I have been doing a lot of recording with this board. The quality of the recording is just as good or better than the Allen & Heath board I've been using in the studio. The preamps in this board are nothing short of amazing. It is loaded with lots of very useful effects. Reverb, delay, chorus, compression, EQ, etc. All of the effects are very high quality. The reverb is especially good. Very natural and rich. It takes some patients to get it linked with the computer. Be prepared to use a cable to hook up the first time. You will mosr likely need to update the firmware and download usb drivers from Behringer. This is all easy to do and only takes a few minutes. The PC app is great. Very intuitive. The Android app is also very good. Not as user friendly as the pc app but makes mixing on the fly easy. I prefer the pc app for detail work like fine tuning effects. Overall, this mixer sounds better than any I've used. I own a Mackie and a peavey. I've used Yamaha, Allen & Heath and other Behringer boards. The only one I've used that sounds as good as this one is the Behringer x32.
