Absolute insider tip in the middle price class

Yetiplanet, 28.08.2013
I have the desk for 1 1/2 years every week to work with it and it has NEVER let me down. (Has not even crashed)

It is a pity you do not see it so many times, but in my opinion it is the Soundcraft SI consoles, X32, LS9, Roland, Presonus and everything there is in the range of 1000 to 6000 Euro consoles for lengths!

It plays rather already in the league of the 12 000 euro consoles with - where one wonders, what one still needs an iLive T-80?

The console is very compact, which saves a lot of space on the FOH and is therefore not a problem if you are using it as a tape console at festivals - thanks to the flexible drag and drop layout of the channels, the workflow is incredibly flexible and damn fast in operation. The analogue-simulated channelstrip makes analog fans friends of the GLD.

A commercially available Cat5 cable is in most Venues eh already rum and so it makes incredibly fun to use this tool always with.

My use is currently on tour with livebands ... among others, 32 inputs and 5 stereo IEM mixes via iPad remote. The thing keeps our backs clear, expands our possibilities, guarantees every night a FATTEN sound and does not need to hide next to VI4s, Pro6 and other large consoles at festivals.

(Reverbs, plates, delays, pitch shifters, various chorus effects, multiband compressors, transient designers, sub-harmonics, etc.) Have yet another AirportExpress installed in the cable bay of the case for WiFi iPad remote and audio streaming. On the app even whole soundchecks and shows can drive, if times must be.

The computer seat is NOT in the stage box, but in the console, so you can bring the console to the start, PA fit, while the Stagebox is still built and wired. Unfortunately, there is no redundant cable between the stagebox and the desk, but if you use decent cables and cables in cable jacks, this is usually no problem and with the compared to analogue Multicores cheap prices of the CAT5 cable you can also regularly a new one Allow If the cable from the desk or stagebox is disconnected during operation, everything is interrupted. If you put it back again, the desk without reboot immediately the Stagebox and all signals are there without cracking. Once the current is gone, the console goes out, but all the last settings are returned after the boot process. Because of the longer boot times for all digipuls, a small UPS is recommended to bypass small current times. (Ups ... wrong cable staked out)

With the optional DANTE Card, the entire world is also open for liverecording and digital signal sending and receiving with other consoles (digital splitt for monitor / FOH consoles ...)

Whether it's a festival, a concert, a club gig or an industrial job, the purchase is more than worth it - wherever I go with the console, there are only amused looks - after the show, the respect for the sound. An absolutely reliable tool with which one can make good money and not even overstrapaziert its money bag!

A new generation of digital mixers

Tun aus Esch/Alzette, 03.01.2014
I first had a Presonus 16.4.2 and I needed a larger desk. Then I went to Thomann and saw a lot of consoles. In the end, I regret to say, "You get what you pay for." I would have had to be very compromise-ready to meet with one of the cheaper consoles (Behringer, Souncraft, Roland, ...).

The operation of the GLD-80 is simply unique. The console offers all the advantages I expect from a modern digital console: free configuration of the buses, free assignment of channel strips to fader, very logical and intuitive navigation between the different mixes (Aux, Master, ...), mixing per bus (what Goes as strongly) but also mixing per channel (where it goes as strong), in addition, of course all usual features per channel and bus, also everything very easily accessible and intuitive to use.

The graphic EQ on the faders with RTA on the LEDs is just awesome, faster you can not whistle a system or eliminate a feedback.

The visual representation of the switching processes of the gates or the compression over time is very helpful in setting the individual parameters.

The touchscreen operation is very intuitive, I just had to "drag" the drag and drop for the fader configuration (not to "lose" the fader).

The GLD-80 is not a desk, it is "all consoles with up to 30 mixbusses". This means that you have to explain the current configuration to a guest mixer, because only with "GLD-80" is nothing really clear, except perhaps one uses one of the standard presets.

Despite the versatility and the clearness, it is extremely handy and compact: since the purchase of this console I have not used the Presonus once again, there was always enough space for the "right" desk.

If the GLD did not exist, I probably would not have bought my own desk at all: the next more expensive "comparable" consoles (like iLive T80 / iDR32 or Soundcraft VI1) would simply be too expensive but too bulky and Yamaha LS9 is mine According to simply at least one generation older.

For me this desk marks the start of a new mixing console generation in the lower to middle price range and in the semi-professional class.
