    Has anyone figured out how to get the DSP to work?
    Tyson M on Dec 15, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Make sure the DSP isnt muted, but to select an effect, turn the program knob and then when u reach the desired number, push down on the knob. To activate it on a channel, under STEREO AUX RETURNS, i turn up knob 4 and activate the main mix button. Finally on the desired channel, i adjust how much effect i want with the DFX2 knob. Im not sure if there is another way but this works for me
    Does this board send individual channel sends through USB, like and audio interface, or does it just group them into a stereo pair or mono channel? And do the faders act as pre-amps for the USB use?
    A shopper on Mar 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interest in this USB Mixer. The USB output is bussed from the master stereo out. As a 2ch out you can record a stereo pair of you entire mix or use the pan pots on the channels for dual mono recording.
    can you use this to multi track on recording software?
    Brian J on Mar 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The USB on this mixer only supports 2 ch output.
    Does this mixer output only 2 stereo channels via USB, or can it output more?
    A shopper on Nov 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The USB is a 2 x 2 interface. It will carry one stereo left/right in and one stereo L/R out.
    How many watts of output power is this mixer?
    A shopper on Jul 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This mixer does not have a power amp. You need to use powered speakers or send it to an outboard amp.
    Can you use the USB feature as a control board ONLY for DAWs only? (sending output to something like a motu mk2 for capture...
    Brian B on Feb 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure I understand this question. If I understand you correctly, that would be lining up two AD converters in series. The usb only carries digital audio, not control signals for your DAW if that' s what you were thinking.

    To connect a board to an interface, you would connect an audio out from the board to an audio in on your interface. The interface then does the AD conversion and the signal is sent to your DAW. You don't need to use the USB in and out at all.
    How many rack units does it take up?
    A shopper on Apr 15, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Including the cable coming off the back you will need to allow for 11 spaces.
    Is there a travel case for this mixer?
    Mark G on Jan 26, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No, just the mixer and power cord.

    Great Board - Can't beat the Price
    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 !

    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 :)

    Continuation of "This appears to be a great item"
    This review is a continuation of a review that I submitted earlier on the same mixer that I returned as defective ... the right channel died on my after a short trial usage period. Monoprice picked up the shipping for me to return it for a new one. One week later, I received a new mixer, free of shipping charges. After getting used to it in my basement, I am now using it for church services where I have at least 8 mics going at one time. It's doing a superb job.

    PROS: Inexpensive unit, easy to use. I am very pleased with its performance, great looking.

    CONS: I have to give it a 4 out of 5, since I am not totally familiar with all that it can do, but I remain optimistic. Looks like to me that this unit is made for Monoprice by Mackie or Behringer. I think Behringer. Any guesses?
    Great Mixer for the price
    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.

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

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

    This appears to be a great item
    I took delivery of this mixer on Thursday, 2-18-2016. It wasn’t until Saturday (2-20-2016) that I got a chance to set it up and work with it to get a feel of what it does, it’s controls, etc. Things were working fine, then the right main output quit on me. No matter what I did, I could not get it to work properly (switches and all, checking cables, the whole gamut / whole 9 yards).

    PROS: I am currently working with Monoprice to get a free replacement, with no charge for return shipping and no return shipping to me for the new unit. Thus far, Monoprice has been very cooperative.

    CONS: After talking with the technicians there, I was told that this particular failure has been observed in the past. In packaging it for return, I can see where the fault of this failure might be attributed to. The Styrofoam packing inserts when put it place, put a great deal of stress on the leftmost and rightmost sliders. This may explain why the right channel crapped out on me. When I packed it for return, I put the leftmost and rightmost sliders at their maximum positions, thus the packing did not interfere with them.

    I am expecting a replacement by next week's end or the week after. Once I get the replacement, I will evaluate, and add to this post.

    16-channel Audio Mixer with DSP & USB
    Getting the DSP effects to work has been a mystery so far. We were looking for an alternative to the Mackie ProFX16, and decided to give Monoprice a try in their emerging pro audio gear. We use Monoprice for a range of products, but wanted to give it a shot with this mixer. Till now, we've used exclusively Mackie mixers from the Onyx 24.4 on down to their compact 802VLZ4. This purchase was to replace a legacy Mackie 16 CH mixer that was getting a bit noisy and had an input channel down. We only use Canare cables for professional shows, and know that our cables aren't the cause of bad audio.

    I'm still on the fence about recommending this mixer for the masses.

    PROS: $150 under the intended competition, sturdy-looking, smooth controls, well marked pots and sliders, a huge plus is the support for the 16-bit stereo USB audio in/out, and it comes with rack ears.

    CONS: The built-in graphic EQ isn't so good. While it isn't a DBX EQ or another industry leader, it may work in a pinch, but for me it didn't sound shape in a good way.
    February 25, 2014
    I couldn't pass this great deal up! I wanted a good mixer that would allow a more than a quartet (with drums) to use mics to amplify or record. I'm very pleased so far, I haven't really put it through the paces yet but I'm looking forward to seeing what it can really handle!

    PROS: Very clean sound. Incredible buy for the price! Very lightweight!

    CONS: None

    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.

    What's not to like
    It's not big and heavy duty like the boards were 30 years ago. These days all my playing is done in my home studio. This board had more inputs for the money. I shopped all over and found nothing that equals it on price and features. Give it a close look.

    The Mixer EVERYONE Should Have!
    This is a mixer that should TERRIFY Mackie! It's built like a tank, solid, smooth-moving knobs and faders, a wide range of input/EQ/insert options, a very usable EFX section and graphic EQ, an invisible noise floor and close-to-digital reproduction. My last mixer...and it's the BEST!

    PROS: Extremely well-built, lots of connection options, nice effects and graphic EQ, VERY quiet, sounds GREAT!

    CONS: Nothing!
