"Great mixer"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is the first time I have had my hands on A and H products and I have to say, very nice. It is well built, the pots feel good, connectors are high quality units with good hold. Sound is nice and transparent. I use an off board preamp so my mics go right into line in on the channels, however I did test out the full potential of the pre's and I say very nice. Lot of gain, little to no noise. Board is well designed, easy for me to see even though there is a lot packed on it in a small space, for what it does. I have not tried the USB part of it, that was an option that I did not need so I can not say as to it's usability. I am using 2 Blue Bluebirds and a Woodpecker with ART preamp, leveler, and eq. High end, transparent, natural sound does not cost a fortune to achieve if you know the best place for your pieces. I recommend A and H and if I upgrade a mixer in the future, it will be them.
Musical Background:

Musical Style:
Style is rough, so time and examples is better: Bjork, Lesiem, Diamanda Galas, Buck Tick, Aimee Mann, Samael. Anything actually
