Portable goodness

By

from Cincinnati Ohio  -  Professional Musician

I like the fact that there are some external controls...dials and such, but I still find that there is a level of complexity to dig through layers of menues to adujust sensitivity and gain on seperate channels as well as to montitor each on seperate. Given this, it is probably the best portable unit there is out to date and a musician on the run who wants to get down some good sounding tracks or the dslr vidographer that needs a lightwietght extermal audio mixer will be pleased once they acustomize themselves with it.
