This is an amazing mixer. Clean, quiet, and even has phantom power for mics. Tons of outputs for monitors and more. Also has 4 sub group faders if you like your drums in one, vocals in another, etc. The 24-bit digital effects are spot-on. You also have direct-in to play music through your P.A. while on a break if playing in live show situations. And last but not least you have USB for recording direct to your computer. Lightweight and compact without being so small that you can't read the knobs, etc. Each channel has "mute" as well. Highly recommend!
