Bought this to replace a similar Behringer board that I've had for almost 20 years. I' was having trouble finding one that had individual preamp sends like my Behringer has; important detail as I would be using this in my home studio and want to be able to record drums. I stopped in to Sam Ash in Madison TN and spoke to Stephan, who was a wealth of knowledge about recording gear. He immediately knew what I needed in this Mackie Board. The only thing I wish this board had, was FX and Graphic like my Behringer, but other than that, it's a very clean sounding product, suitable for studio or live performance.
