What is your overall opinion of this product?
Ordered it Wednesday night and it was shipped Thursday. On my doorstep the next day!!! (Shipped from Reno to NorCal). Now THAT's awesome! Kudos to AMS for fast shipping and service!!!
Took it out of the box and finally had some time to mess with it on Saturday. Impressed with it so far. Just running audio thru it and messing with the effects. The effects aren't world class, but for an all-in-one mixer/fx/eq, this thing is quite awesome. A lot of usable types of effects. No ability to tweak them though. Just more or less. No biggie. Effects shouldn't really make themselves noticed anyways.
Another nice little touch on this mixer is the Hi-Z ability for Channel 1. Run a guitar and play along with the audio. Cool!
Mackie has a lot of nice features and it's great that it's so inexpensive ($179 with the $50 rebate currently-1/2015).
It will suit the intended purpose and not break the bank. I don't have any expectation of reliability problems. At least, I hope not.
