Good Mixer

Pros: Easy to setup and operate right out of the box.

Cons: noise from usb output during computer recording

Overall very easy mixer to setup and operate. There is noise generated from the USB out during recording. I believe someone else reported this as well. I was able to remove noise using audacity, but would have been nice to have a clean record

Pros: Direct in & outs for 4 mono tracks, very powerful graphic EQ, all aux can be returned either mono or stereo while using fx loops.

Cons: The gain stages are still very powerful but I noticed it doesn't take alot for them to begin hissing.

This piece of equipment far serpasses any of the 16 channels boards out there especially for the price range. It has powerful gain stages and a great EQ system on the single tracks as well as the graphic EQ. I have used this board for live sound and even recorded the bands live and aquired excellent recordings, I have used it for studio recordings as well and still does a great job it's like a giant proffessional board but smaller. Even sounds better than most boards.

Great Mixer for the price

Pros: Smooth sliders, plethora of options, sturdy, dependable

Cons: Strange DSP workings, USB output has a lot of noise making it unusable.

I have been using this mixer for a church for about a year now and it has done quite well. I haven't had any major issues. The EQ isn't that great but it is there and usable. I am glad to see that I am not the only one who had a hard time figuring out the DSP and how to use it.

Here is a tip on using it:
In the AUX Returns Solo, select the button for main mix and adjust the amount along with the effects for the individual tracks.

They are not fantastic but there in a pinch.

The USB output is garbage. I have tried many different things and it has a ton of noise not found in any other outputs for the system. Don't bother thinking of the USB output as an option. I was seriously bummed out about that.

Great Board - Can't beat the Price

  • Beachwheel,

Pros: Has all the functions one could want in a small 16 ch. board. 4 sub groups and two mains - Left and Right with built-in affects. The pre/post faders and mic pre's are truly balanced and sound like a board $100's more

Cons: The only con I can think of is: Monoprice doesn't offer an amp…so I had to shop elsewhere for an amp :)

I'm a profesional musician and use this board to travel to local gigs. I also picked up the passive 15'' speakers, matted with a QSC 1000 watt amp. I run a 6 piece band through this set up - even mic'ing the drums. The system works well and I couldn't ask for more. I also picked up the Condenser mic-pare along with Monoprice's basic Mic. They work flawlessly and sound like mic's 4 times their cost! This is a value one can't ignore and Mackie should be scared !

Hard to believe...but true

I haven't had this mixer that long but it fit the bill for exactly what I needed to replace...and the price point was too good to pass up. I am a professional sound person for decades and I got this to add more channels and submixes to my video/audio studio. It seems to be very clean and quiet. The EQ is responsive. The DSP system is still a mystery (sshouldn't be but it is) The headphone amp is adequate without overdriving the amp. My uses (mostly monitoring several computers) are non-critical. Overall I am happy with this purchase. The Overnight delivery is inexpensive and the packing was excellent. So far my purchases from Monoprice have continued to give confidence in their products...and I am knowledgeable and finicky.
