    Good Value. Not Perfect

          Comments about Alto ZMX164FXU USB 16-Channel Mixer with Effects and USB Interface:

          Nice mixer, great features, solid construction. Aux4 is used for the onboard effects processor, so only three monitor channels are available unless you run outboard effects. The direct outs are post-fader, which complicates recording if you're wanting to use them. (I only use monitor channels for recording practices, and set all of the faders to 0db, to compensate.) The board is slightly wider than 19" and can't be rack-mounted. Still, for the price, an excellent value, and I'd recommend it for the value-conscious.

            Comments about Alto ZMX164FXU USB 16-Channel Mixer with Effects and USB Interface:

            Great deal as the Stupid Deal of the Day. Replaced a Carvin mixer with it for the usb and additional mic xlr inputs. So far very happy with it. Still working out the effects mix/setup and tweaking the eq as it seems to sound different than the Carvin - not better or worse but different. Might get that sorted without trouble. A big plus was the layout of the channel controls is nearly identical to the Carvin so minimal learning curve there. A lot bigger than the Carvin but a lot more options. Haven't tried the usb yet but will soon.

            Comments about Alto ZMX164FXU USB 16-Channel Mixer with Effects and USB Interface:

            Pretty easy to set up and use, sound is very decent. The manual is good, not as detailed as a Mackie manual, but also the mixer is not as expensive. Only gripe would be the box wasn't sealed from MF and didn't include the return label that is usually included in case things don't work out. It was sent in the orignal manufacturor's box (unsealed). Will give it a good testing this weekend at two gigs to see how it holds up with 5 vocal and 5 instruments running through it.

              Comments about Alto ZMX164FXU USB 16-Channel Mixer with Effects and USB Interface:

              I purchased this mixer from a recent sale and consider it an excellent value and a great piece of equipment . There are an excellent variety of well marked color coded controls and lots of inputs and outputs . The unit looks and feels well made and initial usage was very successful .
              I have not used the USB features yet and expect it will work as well as the rest ; If there are any issues I will update later . The case seems slightly too wide for rack mounting yet should fit well siting on top of a rack cabinet . I am very pleased and definately recommend this mixer .
