                This mixer is so powerful and so slim! Bright powerful touch-screen, motorized faders, tons of classic FX that get routed on FX returns which makes everything much cleaner and easier to navigate. You can recall up to 100 screnes, as well as your preamps! 48K/24bit 18-channel multi-track direct-to-drive recording is just fantastic. I still remember the days when I'd carry around a giant mixer AND a computer to be able to record multi-track. Staff reviewer @ Sam Ash

                        Tried this board mainly for the ease of recording directly to a USB drive. Make sure you have the latest Firmware update and the recommended USB drive. It works great, recordings sound like studio quality, through either the 16 channel (separate files created on the drive), or the stereo recording.
                        The rest of the board is top notch, including great effects, eq's, flexible routings. Above all it sounds super clean with a lot of headroom. Takes a while to figure out but it's worth it.
