Outstanding Sound and Value
I use this for both recording and performance and it is virtually noiseless (I keep my audio on an isolation tranformer to avoid ground hum where ever it is set up) has great headroom and along with Behringer 18" Powered subs and Behringer powered 15" mains is fantasic sounding and as loud as I want. Versitile hookups (for my rack/multi channel recorder equip), a plethora of channels, and a meter bridge (wonderful feature)! I have seen less than complimetary reviews but I can only say after comapring to many other mixers the sound is a good as any but the value is untouchable. The 100 mm faders have a smooth (I thought loose) feel but I now appreciate their ease of use. I got the SKB 4031 case for it (excellent fit), the Behringer FX 2000 multi effects (incredible range of stereo effects), DBX Driverack DX (makes the powered speakers best for any room + anti-feedback+more), Behringer MDX 4600 multi com gate/exander/limiter, Furman rack power conditioner, 100 ft 24/8 snake (with a snake reel), and SKB rack case. Don't forget the 2 gooseneck lamps to light the mixer! I would highly recommend this mixer and, as always, I thank my Sound Engineer (Jim Watson) and Sweetwater. You both are the best, after trying the rest, it is no contest (lol forgive the poetry). I buy everything from Sweetwater and have never before as pleased with the help, suggestions (especially seeing the exact guitar before I buy and I have bought a few), prices, and the way the Co treats its employees. Enjoy!
