    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.

    A very Nice USB Mixer

    I have not had a chance to put it through it paces all the way but i have enjoyed trying out the software.

    i actually use the yamaha mw12. that one is the same exact thing except it doesn't have any compression or effects so i can't rate those. so i mainly use this thing to route all my inputs to from external gear like seperate recorders and cd players so my monitors are hooked up to them. i also run anything out of my computer into this thing and through the speakers. i don't use this thing for tracking, i use a korg d888 and route the monitor outs to a stereo input on this thing. but i do use it for doing extra pieces and some vocals once i import the tracks from my korg onto the computer. i did have some latency issues at first ( its only usb 1.1) but after some buffer and driver configurations and a gold-platted usb 2.0 cable this thing works without any latency. the pres on this thing are o.k. but for the money its good. i also love the aux inputs on this thing for cd players and ipods. a down side to this thing is that the inserts on mine were shot and caused a lot of noise. i don't know if i got a bum unit but it was bought brand new so if u check this thing out in store, ask them to hook it up to a piece of gear to test it out.

    overall, a good piece of gear but its not incredible although if yamaha did come out with a usb 2.0 version of this i would be all over it
