I have one but I stopped using it as the noise was too high for me - I never could figure out how to set it up right.

The LFO is pretty cool, you can route it to the pan or mid freq on the EQ.

You can also set a fade time between patches so if you have the time you can sort of automate it. I don't think you could midi control the faders though.

I've still got mine and will probably find a use for it again.

A few more deatils:

- Has 2 effects send/return channels.

- Each channel has its own LFO!! This LFO can be used to sweep the panning or the mid frequency. Awesome!

- Can (supposedly) be automated via MIDI. I've heard that this doesn't work very well, however - terrible zipper noise.

The interface is rather clumsy, but this isn't much of a problem if you're the "set and forget" type.

Yes, it does tend towards the noisy side, but its tolerable(forget the headphone jack, its crap). Don't expect to record a symphony orchestra with it, but for the bedroom techno musician it can't be beat - especially for the price!

If you're on a budget and looking for a unique sound, this is the mixer for you - especially if you're doing electronica.

Where else are you gonna find an 8 channel mixer with British EQ, 2 effects busses, and EIGHT LFOs for ~$100? This is one maaaad mixer!
