Does everything it advertises
I exchanged a Mackie mixer for this and was happy I did. The USB connected right away and was recognized without drivers on my MACBook Pro. There was no latency and the sound was great. Haven't tried it with my Zoom R16 yet.
I've always had Behringer mixers in the past and have been very happy with them. Just wanted to try something different. This was about a hundred dollars more then the comparible Behringer. I don't find the Yamaha to be better then the Behringer. They both record well, clean sound good with PA and usb recording, have usable/editable effects. But, I think your paying extra for the Yamaha name. This is a nice mixer and I'm happy with it. Nice, clean sound, good adjustable effects. I will probably stick with Behringer in the future just because of the difference in price.
