Re: Observed as a tagline on another board...

I have several pieces of Behringer equipment (3 mixers and a Composer) and I've never had any trouble with any of it.  Works for me in my little studio.  I'm not sure how road worthy it is, but no problems so far and my main mixer is going on 4 years old now.

I'd call it "transparent", which you could also think of as bad or in some
cases good, or more biased, "eighties-y". This is also true for the digital
console's EQs and dynamics, which I personally like a lot, but then a
producer and friend of mine once introduced me as "the man who can turn
anything into eighties sound" ;).

You're talking about that one?
