OK so this thing is very chunky, heavy and metal and it does the job. It's kind of a cheat that it's called a 6 channel mixer though: really it's a 4 channel mixer where 2 of the inputs are stereo: you can't set the levels of the two mono halves separately or anything. While it's nice to have EQ to play about with it would be even nicer if there was a bypass button to cut the EQ circuitry out if you wanted. Most annoying is the lack of mute and solo buttons. You get what you pay for I suppose, and in this case it's a hefty chunk of metal that can sit on your table and allow you to shove 4 different things into your amp, or by USB into your DAW (if you can settle for not being able to deal with each channel separately)
