Love this mixer. Very impressed with the sound quality and the options.
Music background: Metal

Excellent product!

Great ergonomics: controls are nicely spaced for easy access, great visibility with light colored background, faders feel great under the fingers. Nice effects with two adjustable parameters. Outstanding EQ: the two sweepable midrange controls, which cut with a narrow Q and boost with a wide Q, really make for great sounding vocals and acoustic guitars.

I WANTED to love it

I really, really wanted to love this mixer. I used to have a Ghost mixer in my old studio and I just loved it. This Signature promised to have the same preamps... nope. Not by a longshot. The pre's had very low headroom and very brittle overtones. The EQ is extremely odd and doesn't allow you to work in the normal fashion on boosting the full 12db, sweeping the frequency until you find the offensive one, and then cutting that frequency accordingly. Because this EQ is wide bandwidth boost and narrow cut, you often miss the frequency you thought you had when you go to cut. Makes EQing very time consuming and frankly irritating. The built in limiters had a threshold that was set absurdly high and are all but useless, and the effects are truly mediocre. If you want an analog Soundcraft board I would recommend you go and find a used GB. That was the last truly professional analog board they made.

I waited so long for ... NOTHING

Verry dissapointed. The sound is so pour, no presence. I bought a new one (after I waited almost one year) and, after comparing it with the MFXi 20, I sold it quickly and bought a MFXi8 (used one). It,s much, much better then the long waited Signature wich I do NOT recomand at all.
