"There is no other digital mixer in this catagory that will allow for 16 simulaneous channel recording. This is a very good deal"

I've now used it for about 2 years. In the beginning, the drivers were still being tweaked. I still feel Alesis is still attempting to get the drivers right. As long as you understand there is support behind the product, then it is worth having.

Sound
Sound is well balanced. No noticable hum from power.

Features
No Accessories needed Here. XLR inputs are nice with onboard Phantom av available for each. The onboard effects unit is good, however it cannot be routed through the Firewire interface. This is the only drawback of the unit. There are times I do not with to use VST Plugins since they are sometimes havoc on my Nuendo based system. Allowing the onboard effects would be nice.

Ease of Use
Easy to get a good sound. 9 times out of ten, I leave everything balanced as far as EQ. Never need to tweak unless I am using lower quality microphones. I look at EQ as strictly used when absolutely needed.

Quality
Well Made. The unit does get a bit hot when left on. Finish is fine. Knobs are good quality and non-motoarized faders are fine

Value
Yes. This mixer can encompass an entire Band, and has the ability to record 16 simultaneous tracks at once. Price is reasonable for what it is. I would love to see a 24 track model. I would buy this immediately. I think the 16 channel needs more read more stereo inputs. It has only 4 stereo inputs.

Manufacturer Support
never had to use Alesis support.

The Wow Factor
I like the non-flashyness of the control panal. I think the black / Gray chassie and Blue and Red knobs are just fine visually.
