Excellent analogue mixer and 18/4 USB audio interface

John5372, 14.03.2017
This would be a great mixer for live use and allows you to record 18 tracks at once to anything with USB audio. This works with a laptop or even an iPad. We use the mixer in the studio to capture 12 inputs from a large modular synth plus a few stereo devices. It gives us get a great mix for composing. Subsequent tracking records 18 channels to the DAW.

This is a very well thought out mixer. The inclusion of the Super Channel allows a stereo return from the DAW or built bluetooth or the onboard MP3 stereo recorder. There are 2 monitor busses for each channel. We use them to send the second pair of DAW returns out to the modular rig for processing.

The mixer is strongly built from steel and comes with an optional 19 inch rack mount kit. Included with the package is multi-channel recording software and the artist edition of Studio One. The desk has performed flawlessly and is a pleasure to work with. If you are looking for a 16 channel live desk with multi-track record or an analogue front end for your studio this is currently the best thing out there.

not for me

15.03.2017
i wanted to like this i rely did,for us as a band it seemed the prefect solution ..
record live gigs then be able to mix and master in the studio one softwere.
well it did not work out that way for us at all ,major issues with presonus web site and forum to say the least .its only after you are logged into there site that you realise that your not alone in your troubles ;;;
fadders well the first two look like they are leaning to the right ?all of them do not feel like they will stand the test of time or even 30 day trial .
the rest of the build is solid ;
effects a bit of a let down real lack of warmth to them to be honest ive sent it back for all of the above reasons...shame as i wanted this to work out for us but after 2 weeks i felt it would not.
On the positive side im glad i brought it from Thomann as there 30 day offer has come in handy this time ...
i have orderd a fair bit of gear with them never a issue.
great service .
