Overall: I bought this mixer as a small format mixer for live gigs in moderate sized clubs and outdoors. It has plenty of inputs for most situations but what drew mw too it even more were the 4 auxiliary busses. Four separate monitor mixers should resolve most potential problems and if not there are at least 3 more sends available. The board is ultra quiet. I was using it at an outdoor gig by the river so was running things fairly hot for volume and there was no hiss, no hum, just nice sound at a good level. Having on/off mute switches also cleans up the signal path for unused channels. Some people have complained that 48v phantom power is on for all channels when on. Unless you have a passive ribbon mic, that voltage should not be a problem. Dynamic mics are not affected by 48v. And if you have a sensitive ribbon you should already know not to plug it in unless you have the proper gear to isolate the ribbon from potential voltage anyway. My only real "complaint" is the effects are pretty good, good enough for several to usable, but there are no stacked effects like reverb and delay together. My Allen Heath ZED 10FX manages to have stacked effects.....but overall I really like this mixer and all the great features! Lots of bang for yer buck!
