Great value

By Fonzy

from Fayetteville, NC

We have one of these at my work and it is an great board for almost any use. I plan on getting one for my personal use to record at home. The built in Comp is very easy to use and sounds great. The board is a yamaha so you know it is going to be good quality for the $. The addition of USB makes hooking it up to your pc to record either in a personal studio or live is a plus!

Worth every penny!

By Voy Anuszkiewicz

from Dudley, MA

I bought this board after having great 5-year run with a Yamaha EMX5000 and have been absoluately happy with it! It is clean, reliable, super low noise, worth every penny. My only word of advice, is that a good EQ is needed if you want absolutely top performance. I've been using Yamaha products since 1995 and have proven worthy each and every time. Highly recommend this board.

Good for live and stereo output recording

By Edward Montejo

from New York

Good for live sound and multitracking all your instruments for a stereo line out, just like I said in the subject and I agree w/ the other reviewers. I mainly bought this because I wanted to multitrack drums as opposed to buying a multi-ch interface. I was pleased with how easy this was to use and how it worked, esp with the compression. Anyway, the USB only does stereo tracking out, so if you're looking to multi track via usb, get something else. I gave this 5 stars because it bassically is a great product for what it's supposed to do.
