Michael7102, 09.06.2016
A guitar with singing / prober / hobby musician
I have now tested the M18 over 4 months.

5 star gets the M18 because I got it
With two other consoles.

Presonus Studio Live 16.02 was sound very good, but had a bad reverb, and unexpectedly many misfires / crashes.
Was with me 1.5 years in use.

Dynacord cms 1000, is a current oldtimer on the analog track. For me unfortunately unusable.
After 2 weeks of heavy heart sent back.


RCF M18
Yes, I have found my desk now after the above misses.

Positive:
From the usability and the sound there is
Absolutely nothing to complain about.
I pad start, everything set save and finished.

About the internal guitars and bass effects, I can not say anything because I do not currently use.
First and foremost I use the M18 for
Singing with a guitar.

Particularly to be highlighted is the integrated reverb, which can play for my feeling in the Profiliga.

The M18 has a lot of adjustment possibilities, which are then really convincing and not just as a small addition have been integrated.
Everything is very clean and logical.

The app is for me as a 53 year old hobby musician who has not grown up with apps is absolutely Easy and easy to use! Toll made RCF
M18 Value for money: very good

Negative:
Purchased on 02.2016:
The first M18 went back to Thomann, bugs without end!
Thomann could not confirm the bugs after internal tests, and gave me a new M18.
The second also had the same bugs, but kept it and contacted me directly with RCF, as the Thomann employees with this then still quite new mixer was a little overstrained.
RCF confirmed me then these bugs.
RCF has missed the software and the app of the console then 04.2016 an update and lo and behold because it works now really well.

My own 5 star rating:

M 18 Product: + + + + +
M 18 Thomann / Troubleshooting: +
M 18 RCF / Troubleshooting: + + + +

Conclusion:
I really like this desk
I would buy it again!

A convenient solution

xerbo, 17.05.2017
I bought this somewhat boxed mixer actually closed. I've seen a few videos in the net and frankly the fact that I soon found official RCF tutorials on youtube has made it easy for me to understand simple.
I needed a control device with all the AUXs that could come in handy and with the possibility of inserting it into a flight case together with my microphone transmitter and my in-ear monitor. Essentially, among the digital mixers on the market, removing brands I really trust in, and which I do not name this for exclusion, was my choice.
Result? Now I definitely come to a local (even the most crowded) plug in the plug and am ready with the check on voice and monitor already done in the test room.

I was pleasantly impressed with the quality of the preamps despite the band that the mixer belongs to. The ability to enter a minimum of effects and compression and to equalize with a narrow bell solves many problems related to places not really suitable for making music.

I was a little disappointed with the effects stamp and the compressors that could be used especially on percussion, but I would not take it around to do a sound job despite the possibility of up to 16 channels with a pre-out.

Anyway a good product as a mixer for locals.
