I bought this as portable small mixer for Christian praise team. Size and weight are perfect, sound quality is transparent as it should be. EQ is very musical and useful. The effects are really the low point for me.I expected more but again it was a DOTD and I paid far lees then you normally would for a basic mixer. I don't find the built in effects worthy of the mixer. On the unit I received you have to turn the aux up almost full to hear any change in the effects return. There were only two effects I found slightly useful and at this point I don't use the internal effects. The power supply runs so hot you need to be cautious where you place it. Like another reviewer I did forget to unplug the power supply and there is no off/on switch on the mixer so when I came back the next day the power supply was to hot to even pick up. Make sure to unplug when not using. Overall a great mixer minus the effects. I still recommend it at the sale price. Harbinger needs to add a power switch or build the power supply internal to the mixer.

I bought this to use in my home studio because of the Stupid Deal price. It's really a pretty good mixer with FX if you are on a budget. I need to contact Harbinger regarding a pulsing that I hear when I connect to the computer via USB. Running the main outs into another interface that connects to the same computer eliminates the issue, and the old interface never had this issue on it's own. Maybe a driver incompatibility issue? Would love a power switch and for the retail price, it should have one.

Add a power switch and eliminate the pulsing and I would buy these all day.

      Comments about Harbinger L1402FX-USB 14 Channel mixer with Digital Effects and USB:

      Used the L1402FX-USB mixer with a pair of Harbinger V2115 powered speakers for vocals at a live gig in a medium sized venue. Sound was good and adequately filled the room with the V2115 speakers' input and master vol at around 50%. Mixer channel gains varied with different mics but were all in the 50-70% range. Mixer channel levels stayed around 50% with a little adjustment for different vocalists. Channel EQs seemed to work as they should. Effects were set for a little vocal delay with some reverb. AUX1 was used to drive a couple of stage monitors (more expensive brand powered 12" speakers).
      The V2115s are nice, rated for 600W peak, but realistically are only around 200W in the real world.
      Got this mixer on SDOD sale. Very pleased with performance for the price.
      If you are patient and watch the SDODs you can get a great deal on this mixer. Combined with the SDOD sale on the speakers I think I have a very functional PA system for small and medium venues for a relative low investment, including mics, stands, and cables.
      I've used high end stuff from Digi, PreSonus, etc. This is not high end stuff. It is however, good quality, highly functional, inexpensive stuff.

        Comments about Harbinger L1402FX-USB 14 Channel mixer with Digital Effects and USB:

        I took a flier on this because of a very good SSDOTD price. I normally use a Peavey PV14 mixer in a rack with equalizers, compressors, lots of goodies. Sounds nice, but its heavy to drag around for band gigs. I have a Yamaha MG-82CX which is compact, but there's not enough channels for more than duo gigs.

        This has 8 XLR inputs, 8 mic preamps, 2 stereo channels, and 2 track in. It has built in effects that are actually useable. It's small and fits easily into a briefcase. Easy to transport. The price is very nice. The downsides are that it has TRS instead of XLR outs, and that the left and right channels are controlled by one master fader. Nevertheless, it has worked well in light gigging situations and for rehearsals where its not worth the effort to drag out the bigger board.

        I recommend with no reservations.

        I was looking for a personal mixer when this appeared as the "Stupid Deal of the Day". Two days after I received it my six piece band practiced and we substituted this mixer for our normal one (Mackie). this mixer performed to perfection and all band members were quite pleased with it's capabilities. I would recommend this item without any reservations.

        8 Mic Preamps at a Low Price

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Harbinger L1402FX-USB 14 Channel mixer with Digital Effects and USB:

        I use this for pre-mixing several drum mics in a studio environment, and it works well. Most similar units either have only a small number of mic preamps, or cost much more; this one gives me several pres with phantom power at a very modest price. For my purposes, the dial controls are preferred over faders because they are less likely to be disturbed accidentally. I have not used the effects capability much, but having it available is nice. The unit is compact, sturdy, and nicely laid out, so it's a no-hassle piece of equipment, which I really appreciate. If you like to power things down every time, note that (like most similar units) this does not have an on/off switch; you'll just have to pull the plug or use an external switch. I have been using this for several weeks now and am very pleased, especially in view of the low price. The documentation is also very complete; if you have not used something similar before, there is plenty of information to help you get started.

        It's preamps are absurdly clean.

            I'm using this for talkback mics in my home studio. Each musician is on a foot-switchable mic, with the this mixer's outputs coming back thru my control room speakers and a headphone feed. Works fine, is much quieter than the previous mixer that I was using, and has plenty of mic pres.

            Comments about Harbinger L1402FX-USB 14 Channel mixer with Digital Effects and USB:

            I use this at home for small stuff. Got it on the "Stupid Deal of the Day," and for the price it's a good deal. It could use a few more features, but as mentioned, for the price it's hard to beat.
            It's quiet. That was a concern I had. For the cheap price I was afraid it would be staticky, but it's not, it's nice and quiet. The mic preamps seem to be pretty decent quality.
            The USB worked fine, the computer recognized it right away, no problems with connectivity.

                I was so pleased with a previous purchase of this unit that, when it went on sale, I bought a second unit as a back-up. I do not foresee ever having to use the second unit, but at the sale price, it was worth the peace of mind.

                  I use this to always monitor my kit for gigs regardless of the size due to the Aux send. At smaller gigs when we are just running just the kick through the front house, it's very convenient. Efx are ok. I love the size. The main reason I bought it was because it has knobs instead of faders. Room is a premium especially for drummers who usually get shoved in a corner or against a wall. It fits in basic case, no need to upgrade. I was using a Behringer 1204 but ran out of channels. (had to send both toms to one channel :( )
                  Cost and function, this thing is awesome.

                          This is a nice compact unit with a lot of functionality for the money. Especially if you find it on SDOTD like I did. The FX are pretty good for the price. Two things that are disappointing are the fact that there is no on/off switch and there are no mute buttons for each of the channels.

                          This mixer works and sounds good, however, without an on/off switch, I had left it on 24 hrs only to come into my studio and investigated a smell that turned out to be the transformer of the power supply, which is proprietary to the unit. All the effects sounds fine except the reverb, go figure. Also the inputs for microphone are a little loose and sometimes looses good connection to the pins. This mixer is cheaply made.

                          Great little mixer, ideal for home use. No noise or hum and good quality sound recording/amplication.
                          BUT had to return under warranty due to scratchy/failed Control Room pot under EXTREMELY light home use. Harbinger and Musicians Friend were excellent on return handling, though I am concerned the issue will occur again, so sadly I cannot recommend due to durability issue. USB output is handy but only stereo (L/R), so keep in mind there are no individual track outputs for your software...I am using it with an older version of SONAR and does a decent job for home PC use.

                          Effects are in the pan and the volume is in the pot.

                              everything on this unit works well.... the effects are ok, eh, for the price... nothing great.
                              When using USB for computer recording it gets a little cryptic knowing which buttons to push in or out to make your track only record what's coming through the mixer and not what's being played back on a previous track that you are adding to.
                              Also..... con with the effects.... if you are panning one channel to any one side, either left or right, and you turn up the effects knob for that channel, even if you're pan is all the way to the right or the left the effects will bleed into the unpanned side. very annoying.
                              Other than that, I bought this on a SDOTD sale and got it for a much better price than this.....
                              On and off switch, yea, it has none.... would be a good idea to plug the transformer into a power strip and use that as the on and off switch.
