    Uhhh...that's not an eq. It's a lump of crap that purports to be a mixing desk. I get dizzy looking at gear that has the "b" word on it.

    Its meant to be a mixer. Its not as complicated as it looks. it just has a lot of tracks.and each one has the usual reverb, high, mid, low etc etc knobs.

    if it wasn't a b********, it would be a mixer.

    And yes, i do get dizzy. especially when you see the professional recording studios with a whole bunch of them.

    If you're on a tight budget, it will do. But, i am yet to read a review that doesn't mention some sort of complaint about lack of clean sound, reliability, build quality. some lower end yamaha gear is a better option, like the mg10/2
     
  10. Never used anything by B******** so i really can't say either way, but if you're in the market for a cheap mixer i pixed up a Yamaha mg10/2 a few weeks back basically just to use as a front end for a software based recorder and its worked fine.

    Cheap too.

    Not a lot of channels compared to a comparably priced B-Brand mixer but the ones you do have work great.

    Alesis also has a http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=rec/s=mixers/search/detail/base_pid/630160/ to about the same price-range, never tried any of it but i've always been curious. I've always had really good luck with anything else I've ever used from Alesis.

    Did a gig a couple of weeks ago at a place equipped with a 24-channel Eurodesk. Halfway through the show channel 1's fader stopped working, and our soundman had to ride the trim knob to mix our lead vocalist. The board didn't sound that great to begin with. All the knobs and features are a temptation at those prices, but I have yet to meet the person that didn't regret it later.

    Yup, that's no EQ; however, there may be EQ control knobs for each channel (low, mid, high). Each one of those sliders are faders. They increase when you slide them up, and decrease when you slide them down. Each one helps you to change the volume of the instrument plugged into that channel. As you record/perform, you can balance the volume of the instruments using the faders. If the guitarist is too loud (and they usually are), you can move the fader down.

    They do make some decent stuff. I have their four channel headphone distribution amp and their patch bay, both are solid pieces.

    But yeah... I've used their mixers before. Luckily I never made the mistake of buying one. Pretty noisy.
