Per said something disparaging about the Behringer mixers and I have to
Behringer bascially reverse engineered the Mackie boards and then built them
EXACTLY the same and only cut cost on one set of items: the VLZ preamps
are just amazingly transparent and wonderful (no coloration at all).
That's why they sell for a couple of hundred dollars less than the Mackies.
I have to say that I think the Mackie 1202vlz or the Mackie 1402vlz boards
are some of the best bang
for the buck out there.
Behringer makes some great things: the FCB1010 mid footpedals are amazing
for the price
but the mixers are noisy............be forwarned!
