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.

Perfect mixer
REWO Music, 21.05.2019
Excellent mixer and multiple soundcard. Easy to record (when enough RAM memory installed) a multitrack recording. Sound quality is excellent and the Studio One Artist 4 software is a true gift. Presonus is my favorite brand on recording projects with a reasonable price.
