im sure is repairable. makes a great compact mixer for performing tabletop electronic music live.
My only complaint is I wish it had bigger lighted mute buttons. I alsp got mine for 200...free shipping...used for a singal out of studio project then sold. The way it came packaged you coulda tricked anyone into think it was unused...
first mix on this guy. did a bulk of the eq and compression work in the box and then bussed subgroups out to 12 channels on the console. drove the inputs a bit hard and "sweetened" the stems up with a bit of the desk's EQ. Drove the master into the red a bit and attenuated it before going back to the MOTU for capture.
This mix is a little dark for my taste, It'll take a few mixes on it before I can get what i want out of it I think.
That said, this desk has character for sure. Makes me want an optical comp for the master bus to get things sounding really warm and squishy.
