Decent Small Mixer

By Michael Wong

from Boston MA

This is good when on a tight budget, or when not many instruments need to be recorded at a time. It's not good for drums though, because only two inputs may run at a time. Also, if it runs for too long, all the inputs will clip really loud into a distorted static mumbo jumbo hiss. It's extremely scary. It doesn't have latency monitoring like other mixers.
