I also have critics for this mixing device: In 2005 one line channel produced a cruel high overkill zip noise that caused a acoustic trauma with tinnitus, there you see this device is even dangerous for your health if you wear earphones be careful. I think it was the 3rd channel that started its own living in form a cruel damaging zip noise with harsh distortion and abnormal loud and high whistling sound. I never had real problems with behringer eqs it is known that they are not the best and very limited but sufficient. Any sort of eq is better then no eq, so I disagree with so called professional engineers. I like the master eq and the two stereo fxs, they were one reason to buy this mixer. They are very limited but space-saving. I miss a three band master compressor/limiter and a preline-compressor/gate plus 4 band eq per channel plus 6 Aux sends then it would fit into my vision of a perfect analog-digital hybrid mixer. Behringer is very average in terms of mastering effects or send effects, they would need lexicon built-in fx. I miss the warmth and room of lexicon fxs, behringer fxs sound mostly sharp and thin. All in all it lacks a lot but in all events better then a simple mixer without addon features. Nobody can expect more then preset effects with so less space therefore it is unjustified to critize this part. I think average rating of 6 is acceptable.

This is a great board. Whoever doesn't know what they are doing might not like it. This board is quiet, flexible and reliable. Try getting this much baord in a Mackie, you'd go into debt long before you put out any sound as good as this!

I do sound engineering and this is the worst board I have ever used.

EQ is horrid and the internal FX blows. The sweepable mid and high EQ boost/cut stray frequencies other than their center frequencies - useless on vocals and drums. Want to get rid of honkiness in the lead vocal? You'll sacrifice good tone. Want to notch out ringing in the drums? You'll lose the punch too. All because of sloppy EQ! The EQ knobs might just as well have been labeled SUCK like the Far Side cartoon.

Internal FX cannot be tweaked; reverbs are muddy, 10 delay/echo presets with fixed delay times and feedback, you can't tweak 'em. You're left with phaser, chorus, flanger. Wow great for a psychedelic 60s band. Yup it has compression but how do you adjust threshold, ratio, and output level...?

Throw away EQ and FX, and you're left with a line mixer.

Terrible value. These are cheap for a reason. You're throwing away your money.
