Should I dig up the literature about the special patch cables made with directional copper?

I have one and it's routing options are great. I love the unit, but unfortunately one of the channels is kaput and it's in the shop to see if it's even worth spending money on. I am going with the Key Largo into an Ashly 308 to facilitate use of my iem's.

A 4-band parametric EQ on each channel and 31-band graphic EQ are great features I forgot to mention before. More info and some detailed tutorial vids are on Soundcraft's product site.

I like how HammondDave seemed happy with the sound and form of his small, inexpensive Mackie mixer except for it dying on him and asked whether or not to get another Mackie or something cheaper and you guys are telling him he needs to get an $1800 rack mounted mixer.

I'm sure that the Ashley mixers are better in a recording studio and it is probably what they use at AIR Studios but that is not what HammondDave seems to be looking for.

He is looking for a replacement to his Mackie and the Behringer Xenyx is inexpensive and sounds comparable to the Mackies. The mic pres on the Xenyx and the Mackie are weak but he is just using it to mix keyboards.

I will say that I find the Soundcraft to have better preamps but for just boards there is no reason not to go for the Xenyx.

I myself have a Soundcraft because I do have some mics going through it. It's good live but obviously there is better if you need something for a recording studio.

You guys recommending mixers $1500 more than he is looking to spend are ridiculous.

People look for all kind of stuff in a mixer, which isn't necessarily a "studio" sound. That could entail transparency, certain abilities to create (analog) signal bands, strip and master section "curves" that create a mix with depth from pre-conditioned tracks, etc. I also like the added possibilities of EQ, multiple compression facilities, powerful effects, signal routing (aux-s, sub busses) signal types it can handle, impedances.

The Soundcraft is a lot of power for the money, I could be convinced those DBX effects and Lexicon reverbs actually work, which could be quite powerful. But, it looks like it's 44.1 kHz sampling frequency, and it mixes digital (not digital controlled analog) which certainly at only at 44.1 S/s would NOT be acceptable to me. Also: no digital sync with digital effects or recording devices/interfaces.

Right, Theo, I suppose part of the limitations of what $300 will get you . . . moving on up though, the $100 more expensive Ui16 offers stereo recording to a USB drive, and the $1,000 Ui24R with 20 Studer-designed preamps allows multitracking, simultaneously sending all 22 inputs to DAW and recording the stereo mix onto a USB drive. I haven't tried mine as a DAW interface; I'm still using an old school Mackie Onyx 1640i firewire mixer for that.

For us, the beauty of the Ui24R in live performance use is the wide array of easily customized effects options and EQ per channel, excellent feedback suppression tools, channel-selectable phantom power, stellar vocal mic sound (Shure Beta 87 a's or c's mate well with this mixer), the reassurance and convenience of one-click show/venue settings selection when sound check time is limited or nonexistent (it happens) and built-in wifi - but most particularly the ability to allow everyone to mix their own IEM via iPad while pushing clean, crisp sound out front. If there are any compromises in the sampling frequency, they don't seem to be readily apparent in that context.

Does the 16r have these same Efx and feedback suppression features?

I saw the cheap model records, even in 24/32 bit, too, with a sw upgrade.

It's like, I've got more than a few options to push signals through very good 44.1 digitization, and seldom I can agree that it satisfies me. So I though , before others try for years and find out the same, maybe some would like to know there are usually some serious degradations unless you know very well what you're doing and us extensive intermediate processing at 96kHz for instance.

It's alright to be ok with a flexible handy to use live setup, but I can't stand the sound of most I'm hearing, even if it isn't wrong for the most part or damaging, it just takes the fun away for me.

If you use analogue studio monitoring, I think you want a clear, transparent sounding analog mixer, with some eq and maybe some more signal processing if it's neutral sounding. I dare you to take a goof signal source, maybe a decent analog synth, and imitate a decent analog strip eq, a little shelving low boost for instance. No way your digital will sound alike, strange but true, and I prefer that neutrality and think it should be considered normal still, even in this time of upcoming potent cheap digital mixing!

Looking at the Soundcraft product site for the Ui12 and Ui16, it looks like both have the same effects and feedback suppression tools (AFS2) that we use on the Ui24 (by the way, the DigiTech Amp Modeling on channels 1 and 2 make for great experiments with EP patches):

"The Ui Series mixers feature cross-platform compatibility with iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS, and Linux devices, and can use up to 10 control devices simultaneously. In addition, the Ui12 and Ui16 each feature built-in HARMAN signal processing from dbx, DigiTech and Lexicon, including dbx AFS2, DigiTech Amp Modeling, and more. Both models feature fully recallable and remote-controlled mic gain and phantom power, along with 4-band parametric EQ, high-pass filter, compressor, de-esser and noise gate on input channels."

"Both mixers offer 31-band graphic EQ, noise gate and compressor on all outputs, plus real-time frequency analyser (RTA) on inputs and outputs. Built in are three dedicated Lexicon FX busses: Reverb, Delay and Chorus. In addition, mixer controls include Subgroups, Mute groups and View groups, among others. The Ui Series mixers feature full Show/Snapshot recallability with channel recall safes, while security lockout features allow customization of device access to only specific functions and mixes if needed. Both mixers also offer independent network interfaces on board for simultaneous control by Wi-Fi and Ethernet, plus a floor-ready rugged chassis for live applications."

Can you assign different effects for different channels? For instance, I may wish to bathe my analogue Mellotron in Tony Clark Reverb and at the same time run my analogue MiniMoog through delay.

Yes, effects are independently applied by fader per channel (and on each aux out too), and there is a master fader for each effect as well. There is also a foot switch jack that I think can be assigned on/off to an effect - I haven’t played with that so I’m not entirely sure how that works.

The Tablet Software Demo screen simulation will give you a pretty good idea of how the software works (btw, “software” is a bit of a misnomer in that there is nothing to download or install; any device with WiFi capability can access the mixer - passwords can be assigned to limit access or restrict scope of rights). On the software screen, these basics will give you a lot of functionality: 1) toggle the mix/gain button - swipe l&r to navigate channels; 2) touch and hold a channel label for various channel setup options; 3) select a channel by touching its fader level button or by touching its label, then press “edit” to get eq, effects, dynamics and aux assign buttons/screens (channels 1 and 2 also have amp sims). After that, the rest is fairly intuitive. The user guides and vids on the product site provide a lot of depth when you want to dig in further.

For just a standalone, inexpensive analog mixer, I like the way the Yamaha MG/XU mixers sound. A few years ago, I demo'd one next to an Allen & Heath ZED, which I fully expected to wipe the floor with the Yamaha. The ZED was warmer, but I was pleasantly surprised by the clarity of the Yamaha, especially in the low end. It was tighter and punchier. Definitely a cleaner, sound, but not sterile, which is how I tend to describe Mackie/Behringer. The build quality could be a little better, but it's pretty par for the course for the price point, so it's hard to make a big deal of it. They're also built better than they used to be.

I have been pleasantly surprised at both the sound quality and feature set of the Soundcraft Ui mixers. If you're looking for something where you can quickly grab a knob or fader, they're definitely not the right choice. But for the price, man...they're pretty hard to beat. I can't speak to the quality of the onboard effects, because I've not needed them in the scenarios that I've used the Ui series. I'm also not sure that this has been completely explained yet, but the interface is via web browser on any device – so, on an iPhone, for example, you'd access the mixer via Safari (or other browser), rather than download a dedicated app. The mixer creates its own wireless network, so you also would also have to join the Ui's network to control. Not sure if you use any other wifi networks as part of your rig, so this might be a dealbreaker. But yes, play around with the demo that rickp posted to see what all features are available.

Let us know what you end up with.

May have to have both my iPad and iPhone to run both...

Also noticed that the mixer is bundled on Amazon with various microphones, cables, bags, etc for the same price as Sweetwater’s for the mixer alone.

So I am now reconsidering the Soundcraft Ui16. It may be too complex for my needs. I just want a mixer that I can turn on when I walk into my studio and not fuss with signing into Wi-Fi . Sometimes I don’t carry my iPhone around with me and I can just imagine how pissed I would be when entering my studio and realizing that I have to find my iPhone.

If you can, try to find a small mixer that has faders vs. knobs for channel levels, as you'll have much more precise control over levels. I'm not up on the latest models from all of the vendors, but at one time there were a few that met this need.

I've always gone the next size up in such cases, to avoid the knobs, as experience showed me how problematic they are -- especially when adjusting in real-time at a gig. The audience can get a nasty surprise due to the coarseness of the levels when using a knob!

I'm sure that the Ashley mixers are better in a recording studio and it is probably what they use at AIR Studios but that is not what HammondDave seems to be looking for.

I'm just excited to have finally discovered a product that apparently costs three times as much in the US as it does here in Australia.

OK... so I took advantage of the Memorial Day sale and purchased the Soundcraft Ui16. Wish me luck.

Yammie MG's are great bang-for-buck, and easy to use. I only recently sold my 16-channel model to a drummer who needed it more than I do. I prefer the older blue models to the newer black ones, as they're easier to read in typical stage and studio lighting (which usually is non-existent), and also find the extra EQ on the older ones more useful than having a limiter on each channel.
