UTILIZATION

For the most part a very simple mixer to operate. The manual explains everything you need to know as far as: connections,features,alternative routing and so forth. Mine ever came with little section explaining how to clean and keep the mixer in working condition (that could have been something the previous owner add in though). You want to use this mixer for: Routing, mixing (basic), recording vocals or instruments (as they require preamps most of the time and any other basic computer recording projects. This is meant for smaller setups or people just jumping into the field.

SOUNDS

To be 100% honest I was not at all impressed with the sound quality of this unit for the reasons listed below.

1. The preamps are very noisy
2. The EQ is basic
3. Brand isn't too consistent with quality of production
4. The unit would go in and out from time to time. I found myself having to unplug and replug in my ¼ cables multiple times before the mixer would connect the signal
5. Phantom power is very WEAK. You'll be lucky if you can record anything a 12 inches or more away
6. Volume indicators go out very quickly


Granted this was a used model I had but the studio I record at has a few of these (they are cheap and inexpensive)and the guy that uses them takes them to wedding and family events along with his camcorder and he ran into the same issues. In fact he said out of the 3 he had in Studio Room D only one had decent sounding preamps on it.

OVERALL OPINION

I felt behringer failed in terms of putting together a quality unit for it's lower end consumers but they did create an affordable unit that can get the job done with some small restrictions it's a cheap unit can't really expect much from it.

If I were starting out recording I would save my money and go with something with a little more promise factor. I'd save my money and get a better unit or better yet make sure I test the unit in the store before purchasing it that way there are no surprises

This is not a unit I would ever purchase again. I ended up trashing the unit a month and a half after purchasing it
