But some of these are panned hard left and right. But at the same time, since I’m also 2404-vls3 for the quality of the audio, I am skeptically optimistic at best when it comes to the fidelity of bantamweight gear with a “small footprint.

The badly placed headphone jack is among my very short list of cons, which is completely outweighed by a lengthy list of pros.

Above that is the mixer’s three-band equalizer, with low shelving fixed at 80 Hz, high shelving at 12 kHz, and mids sweepable between Hz and 8 kHz.

The auxiliaries allow for really flexible routing, although it would be nice to have an option to switch auxes five and six to pre-fader mode, to allow a completely independent stereo recording via the USB interface.

The USB interface facilitates the recording of four discrete channels and playback of two discrete channels to and from your computer, respectively. There are six other, smaller mixers in the line, ranging from inputs, but the and the bring three new tricks to the party that none of the others have-two onboard effects processors, USB connectivity with your computer, and onboard 2404-lz3.

These same auxiliaries could be used as an effects send to plug-in processors on one’s computer, and I’ve become a big fan of using computers as signal processors this way-I’ve become spoiled by the quality of convolution reverbs and the like.

It would be nice to have them on more than just four mackle channels, but the four subgroup compressors are very useful.

The inclusion of these items is gaining popularity with other manufacturers as well, and rightfully so. If the processors sound good, that’s two less rack-mounted units I have to lug into the gymnasium. Pan that input to the center. This is powerful-it makes for quick turnaround of podcast uploads, and can also enable quick editing, processing, and burning of CDs for churchgoers.
