Superb Ultrapolyvalent Mixer

bleq, 28.04.2017
The purchase of this table was made instead of an analog table for more versatility.

uses:
-In repeat for the possibility of playing helmet:
-Live!

The sound of the table is really very good compared to our old mixer. We are really on pro material. The table is connected in a 4U rack to a Millennium HP4 headphone amp. Provide a cable DB25-> 8 TRS jacks to make everything go behind for the returns if not your cables will be in front.
To be autonomous, the table is connected in network to a router wifi recovered for the occasion.

The enormous positive point is played on the compactness (rack) and therefore the ease of transport, the interconnectivity and the independent management of the returns. You want a little more guitar, no problem we take his smartphone and via the application Qmix UC it is done. Awesome.

Very hard to find opportunities .... I understand why. A big hit

Advantages:
- The sound of preamps
- The built-in effects library (reverb and delay)
- The management of individual returns via a smartphone or table by each musician separately without appealing to the sound engineer!


disadvantages:
- The need for a tablet or PC, the smartphone does not allow to do the main mix (at least for now, Prosonus if you hear me ...)
- Small network knowledge to connect the table if not set in DHCP
- Wifi dongle not provided. At this price it is clearly abused

Solid device with intuitive operation and class sound

14.11.2016
The device I got Thursday, on Saturday the 1st (carnival) event mixed:
Task: Small band (3 musicians, drums, keyboard, sax, complete microphone) as well as 3 radio transmitters and music preserve with about 400 listeners / spectators.
To the device in general:
The design of the mixer is logical and self-explanatory. The device makes a great impression in quality, does not rattle or rattle, the power switch sits securely on the back of the housing so that accidental switching off is impossible. Practically (and mE also a little risky) the mute button on the front of all output channels is muted.

The quality of the input and output jacks (partial jack / XLR combobuchsen and XLR jacks) was perfect, there is nothing to complain about.

Hardware:
The operation is exclusively via PC or tablet. There is even a Windows version of the UC Surface software. This I have before the purchase times for test purposes installed, at the event, but then I have customarily given preference to the Ipad. The Apple and Windows versions of the software are identical to the operation and functionality, so the evaluation of the software is also valid for the Windows version.
I have at the event the mixer by LAN cable to a Fritz box 4020 connected as access point. As expected, there was no problem with range and link quality. The UC Surface App on my two Ipads immediately found the mixer without hesitation.

Operation software:
The interface of the software is logical and largely intuitive. The manuals I had downloaded before, but had to make no use so far. I could at the operation, synonymous from about 25 meters distance to the Fritzbox no time lag (latency), synonymous misfires or the like I had not. I mix with larger setups currently with Yamaha TF3 and Stagebox. The Presonus software is in my opinion even more intuitive to use than the Yamaha StageMix software! "Fucking" I would in this regard only the Yamaha app looks more chic. However, the paths to the individual functions (eg gate, compressor, etc.) in the Presonus are shorter. With the range of functions I have so far nothing missing.

Sound:
The sound is there from my point of view nothing to complain about, the Xmax preamplifiers are nice pegelfest, try, I sometimes provoked an oversteering. The input level indicator on the front of the unit (LED chain, one LED per channel) then changes to red so that the overdriven channel can also be found directly on the mixer. - Practically! The corresponding channel is also marked in the Ipad app. When the signal was not scraped, the signal was truncated. In my test, this sounded like a drop out of a radio microphone.

My conclusion:
In terms of processing, sound and usability, I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Also the extensibility by Dante card and a system extension eg with an RML32AI or an extension with a Pulthardware like the CS18AI is m. E. is important for the future and expansion potential.
For setups up to 16 channels a great, mature mixer with "great" functions. At the target events for this mixer size I need no Pulthardware, with a setup over 16 channels, I have at least at the time (still) rather a "real" desk in the fingers. From me there for the RML16AI a clear recommendation!
