Just ordered one of these bad boys to replace my Yamaha M06.

I'm guessing the improvement should be...noticeable. grin

Looks nice!!!! Please keep us posted after you've used it.

3-4 years ago somebody was giving away a Yamaha MG12/4fx. I picked it up.
No power supply, that's why they were giving it away. The Yamaha PS was $50, the off brand on eBay was $15 delivered and works perfectly.

We used it to run an open mic night quite a few times, pretty decent little goodie box. Not an SSL though!


There is never enough time to be in a hurry...

Yaasss!. I have one, and I love it. It's very flexible and sounds great. I don't use it to its full potential, because I do most of my mixing in the box, but for my setup, it works great. I use channels 1 and 2 for mic'ed inputs, line-in 3 and 4 for my DAW return, and line-in 5 and 6 for my Kemper. I send cue 1 to my headphone amp. I've got my DAW input connected to the muite/bus B. That gives me the ability to listen to the mix while recording a track. Weirdly, I don't use the main outputs at all, which includes that nice G-series bus compressor. Somehow, that just doesn't seem right.

Just a heads-up--it gets hot. I (and SSL) recommend turning it off when not in active use.

Nice, Pat. Great to hear!
It's showing up in the next day or so, along with one of their 2+ interfaces. I'm totally psyched. boing

Cool! That is exactly my setup. Once you get it, maybe we can compare notes on inputs and routing.

Okay, I’m set up and already cut some tracks. I cannot believe how well laid out and feature packed this thing is...and man, it sounds amazing.

If it were just a dual channel strip, it’d be worth the $.

A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.
