Awesome Keyboard Sub Mixer!I specifically purchased this mixer to be used as a submixer for 4 keyboards all running stereo on a national tour live. All the sound guy had to do was drop me 2 XLR's for L & R and I plugged them right into the back of this mixer. No DI's needed! Simple, yet lot's of control, so I was able to pull some high's out of some of my lead synth parts, but yet leave the piano and other keyboards alone. Solid built and very roadworthy! I'd buy more Ashly gear if I had a use for it. A++

easy to setup, built great, souonds awsome!I just purchased one for a conference room setup, I have always loves Ashly equipment, but was enamored with the control panel of this mixer.
After hooking it up, and powering up, the system was dead silent, I had to make sure everything was working as I thought there was a problem, I discovered the system was turned on when i tested the microphones by inducing feedback. turns out the noise floor is well below the ambient noise of the room, even with me standing directly under the speaker i could not hear anything.
Very nice mixer, I will be using the Ashly MX508 in all of my conference rooms.

These things ROCK!!!!!!I've had mine for over 10yrs and it's been on MANY world tours and it is just now starting to act a bit funky.... can't blame it after years of road work though. It has EXCEPTIONAL sound and versatility. I would recommend for ANY live application whether sub-mixing or doing live sound on small level. Ashley makes incredible equipment.... a bit higher priced, but WELL WORTH the bit extra. And their service is outstanding. After 6-7yrs on the road and having taken it's share of lumps, I took mine to the Ashley shop while I was in Rochester and they got it back as close to spec as they could free of charge.... I'm sure that's not the usual treatment but after explaining how long I used it... they obliged. I used mine to sub-mix a horn section and send stereo out to the house and it worked AWESOME. I had control of the overall mix and monitor set up and all was groovy. I've also done small gigs mixing house and monitors with it. So there you have it. Maybe Ashley will see my RAVE review and hook me up with a new one.... hint hint.... :)
