I can’t tell you what a relief it was to have the Ease of Use Very easy to use and the layout is similar to any other mixer you have probably seen. It is ideal for live performers who need one stereo source for their main audio, and 1 other stereo source for a backup source or something else to use in conjunction with your main audio feed.
