I love this mixer i use it when I'm in the studio to connect it to my speakers and to my piano and my guitar and to my desktop or my laptop when I'm working on music or just playing video games or wanna listen to music or watch videos.
This is a good mixer for the price, but it is small and doesn't have a lot of outputs/inputs (if you have a lot of different instruments like me). It is also sort of on the cheaper end, and I've read reviews of it breaking over time. Mine has still held up though.
edit: After 5 years of use, mine seems to be starting to die. It is making a lot of static feedback on synths I have plugged in, but when using the synths direct to headphones it sounds fine. I think It's time for a new mixer.
Cheap and accessible, are the key selling points for this unit. I have one, however found it to have some issues with noise in the mix. Further, it straight-up died on me one day, despite light use for its life (bought new, never toured with it, well cared for, etc).
It was better than nothing, but I am now exploring other brands due to the disappointing experience (and short life).
This is my first hardware mixer, so I can't compare it to other mixers, but it does the job well! One problem I have noticed is that I have two synths and a tape deck and I only have one stereo input left, so I'll probably have to upgrade to a 1202 soon. For now, though, this is a pretty good mixer ^
