What change !

I had fun with this mixer, I come from a small berhinger 8 tracks without effects! FYI, I am an amateur, not at all a pro! For repeated use. at home or small benefits.

Table a little big for my current needs but the day I have a battery to amplify I would be happy to have so many tracks!

I have just received it but I give my first impressions:
- Good packing box (with full info and diagrams on it!). The table is protected with high density foams. The carton was shipped in a larger box full of air bags, among the qqles other accessories purchased. Perfect.
- In the box: the table, 2 power cables. (Take France and England (??!)), 1 USB cable / pc, A4 plastic bag with starter kit and software info and warranty (pfff it's stingy!). The French manual is easy to find in pdf.
- On the internet: identify yourself on the presonus website, give the serial number and download the free software offered (Studio One Artist + a few dozen modules and additional software) - I have not seen Capture yet indicated on the description Thomann ...
- Software still not tested: I will comment later (I do not know anything ...)
- The table is light despite its size (surprised!). Very nice table, it's pro! The faders are rather small but it's ok.
- 2 monitor outputs: connected to 2 HP (box pro 110M) passive with the same amp / equalizer. Adjustable via 2 knobs per track and 2 general faders, just surprised that when the MAIN fader is zero, the sound comes out on returns ... just let it know!
- Effects: perfect for voices! No adjustment just the output level. Adjustable by track and a general fader (I had not seen it at first!).
- USB plug / pc: great! adjustable with fader 21/22. The PC recognizes the table very quickly. Just tested to send mp3, it's perfect. Not yet tested multitrack or recording (I will post later).
- Bluetooth: track 21/22 also. Works perfectly ! Beware the sound PC and phone out at the same time if the two work together ...
- SD card reader / recorder: still track 21/22! a switch can choose either the PC or the SD card, so I think we can not send PC sound if we save on the SD card ... weird, digging ... Otherwise it works great and you can read right away, it's easy and fast! but pity no control screen, if there are dozens of files we are completely lost! ...
- For the rest, it's pretty classic. I finally like that all the cables are on top, easier to spot! But little room to put tape under / on the faders.
- Weird not managed to get out of the sound on the first 4 inputs for an electronic drum (2 jacks) but ok on 13 to 20 in stereo ... to dig again!
To summarize, I am very satisfied even if I have not tried multitrack recording on the PC yet. A little pricey but I do not regret (otherwise the AR16 for those who need fewer tracks).
