I have one but I stopped using it as the noise was too high for me - I never could figure out how to set it up right. |
The LFO is pretty cool, you can route it to the pan or mid freq on the EQ.
You can also set a fade time between patches so if you have the time you can sort of automate it. I don't think you could midi control the faders though.
I've still got mine and will probably find a use for it again.

A few more deatils: |
- Has 2 effects send/return channels.
- Each channel has its own LFO!! This LFO can be used to sweep the panning or the mid frequency. Awesome!
- Can (supposedly) be automated via MIDI. I've heard that this doesn't work very well, however - terrible zipper noise.
The interface is rather clumsy, but this isn't much of a problem if you're the "set and forget" type.
Yes, it does tend towards the noisy side, but its tolerable(forget the headphone jack, its crap). Don't expect to record a symphony orchestra with it, but for the bedroom techno musician it can't be beat - especially for the price!
If you're on a budget and looking for a unique sound, this is the mixer for you - especially if you're doing electronica.
Where else are you gonna find an 8 channel mixer with British EQ, 2 effects busses, and EIGHT LFOs for ~$100? This is one maaaad mixer!
