How a digital mixing console should be

DocN, 27.02.2014
After working long time with my Allen & Heath 16:2 (1st edition) console and a 9unit side rack (compressor, eq, reverb ...) I wanted to size down the equipment a bit.
We are 5 musician in a country-band - 4 of us need a different monitor-mix and we do not really have a tone-engineer with us.
The console arrived Saturday morning and was unpacked in minutes...
Powered up, Mic connected and active spekers attached (of course: the manual is still seald in a plastic bag....).
The only "change" is the layout of the channel strip - the "fat channel" is gorgeos!!
Having all the parameters well-arranged, the only thing I needed some time for was how to add fx to the channel strips.
I already states it: I did not need a manual at all....who ever used a pro analog console should have no issues using this genious mixer.
A great feature is the Iphone and IPad remote control:
Full access from IPad to all channel strips, fx, subs, eq, ... - and the most used in our band: the iphone monitor mix - just two virtual wheels on the Iphone, one for "Me" (to be configured - i.e. my guitar and my mic) and "Band" - a mix out of all other instruments. Really handy and helpful - saves time.

My final statement: Easy to use, "All inclusive" (for my/our requirements) and worth every penny!

Excellent didgital desk

Steven556, 13.01.2015
This desk was an investment for the future. I have the iPad and a router in order to get a really good front of house mix. I can additionally setup great in-ear and monitor mixes using the iPad or an iPhone.

Apart from the AI features, the desk is user friendly and making the transition from analog to digital is very easy. The buttons on each channel strip light up and you can easy determine where you are on the board and what features on the channel strip are accessible. You can also save everything you can do as a 'scene'. This allows the recall function to be your number 1 means of bringing up old mixes from previous shows you may have done. You also tweak older mixes and save them on top of the old scene or as a new one. This might sound complicated but if you search through Presonus online you will find a tonne of videos that will aid in your research before you buy.

I was going to get a Studio Master or a Behringer X32. Presonus was the best decision I could have made.
