by Phil R from United StatesFor a small to medium sized band mixing sound from the stage this makes life easier and your band sound better. Great sounding preamps, effects and processing.

This little mixer saves me two trips on every load-in compared to my previous rig and setup/sound checks go much faster now. Plus we've finally been able to tame the sound of an unruly resonator guitar that always gave us fits in the past. So happy with this! close [-]

Cuts sound check down to almost nothing. And when my band plays I can make adjustments from the stage. 24 channels would have been nice but this unit is well worth the price. Get ya one. close [-]

Gear lust overload!
by Roger Hayes from Livonia, MichiganVery very good sounding preamps, very easy to use format. A little funky getting used to "Touch-Control surface" mixing.

The master fader app has froze up a few times but I was able to re-start the software and Wi-Fi connection with no drop outs or noise while the band was playing through it. I'm looking forward to a better app upgrade with much needed stuff such as, shows & snapshots are not highlighted when engaged. You don't rally know which show or snapshot you are working with, kinda stupid don't ya' think! Anyway I don't even want to think of going back to my old analog board. close [-]

The best 16 channel digital mixer available (as of q3 2012)
by tom pryor from Long Island, NYThis mixer does have its limitations. Only 16 channels, no inserts, blah blah blah.
