The mixer comes packaged nicely in a box and comes with a manual and code for the free Cubase software. The mixer itself is really nice; it's solid and sturdy, has nice rubberized edges. The knobs have a good feel and overall, it is a very nice looking mixing board. I immediately got to work setting this up with my PC. And that is where the fun ended...
This mixer has problems with the headphone jack hissing. It's a constant hiss that won't go away, and not a quiet hiss, but an awfully loud and noticeable one. My previous Alesis mixer never did this. Worse off yet, there is a problem with the output of the sound through the headphone jack. Upon running audio through it at the lowest volume possible with headphones, sound only comes out of the right ear/speaker. I have to turn it louder (to slightly uncomfortable levels) to get it to work out of both ears. Worse off yet, even at louder volumes, the stereo of the headphones sounds drastically off, it still sounds slightly louder in the right ear than the left. It's NOT my headphones, computer, or equipment. There is a problem with the mixer itself and it's headphone output.
I'm very experienced with mixers and audio equipment. There is definitely something wrong with this device, and based off reviews as well as some Google research it seems this is a common issue with these mixers. I find hissing and volume/stereo issues completely unacceptable, especially for $100. I spent more to avoid the pitfalls like this of a cheaper mixer. I am returning this and ordering a Behringer QX1002 USB mixer here from Amazon.
The rest of the mixer seems fine so far hardware-wise. I really like it, the regular 1/4" audio outputs work fine. My drum machine plays through here clean. But there is a problem with the headphone jack, and I find that completely unacceptable. I believe most producers would want to have non-hiss headphone capabilities with their mixers. I also want to add in, I tried everything including different headphones and even plugging this into different outlets in my house (some people blame such issues on ground issues, even though I have brand new, fault-tolerant outlets in my office/studio).
I want to add in, besides the headphone output, I'm not fond of the FX built into this device. They're kind of wonky, don't sound all that great. I dind't fully learn this mixer, but I'm also not sure if the delay/echo effects are customizable. That wasn't enough for me to get rid of it, but I want to mention if you are buying this for the FX there is nothing special about it.
I would avoid this Mixer. I hate to say it, because I like Alesis, I have their drum machine. I want to like this, it's really nice, it's compact and sturdy. But I can't keep something with a flawed headphone output. Their last mixer I had was good. But this one, I'm not happy about it whatsoever.
I have my Main mic on Channel 1 with the low cut filter engaged (which also supplies Phantom Power if your mic requires it) and a 1/8 to 1/4 inch adapter with a standard cable connected to a device such as my phone with the guitar switch engaged. I use this to spam MLG Airhorn effects whenever I win a round in CS: GO.
One thing the manual doesn't say to get this working is that you need three knobs turned on to get sound out of your mic: You need your channel gain knob engaged (item 4 on instructions sheet), channel volume (item 11), and the master volume (item 18). For line in on channel 2 from an external source such as from a guitar or tape deck, you need the guitar switch engaged and it's recommended that you don't increase the input gain, only the channel volume.
Overall, it's a pretty neat toy if you want to break into podcasting or something, and an XLR mic and this mixer combined during sales isn't more expensive than a USB mic such as the Yeti, but sounds better than one.
I received the unit on time (though the tracking of the shipping was a little screwed up) and undamaged. Setup and connection to the computer was straightforward. As other people have mentioned, the process for getting the cubase software is more cumbersome than it needs to be. (would it really cost that much more to include a data DVD?)
My one complaint so far has been that the 48volt phantom power badly bleeds noise into the mains and monitor. (at least through the headphone jack...I haven't hooked it up to speakers yet) This is not a cabling issue as the noise happens as soon as the phantom power is turned on even if nothing is plugged into the inputs. however it IS running through the mic pre-amps as increasing any channel's pre-amp gain increases the noise. As soon as phantom power is shut off, the noise goes away. Luckily, I'm using a couple of AKG C-1000s which can be battery powered and therefore don't need phantom power. If my mics had to have phantom power, the mixer would be useless.
Outside of that problem everything works as advertised.
