I am a dyed-in-the-wool Bose L1 user, and not at all a big fan of using the Bose gear with third party mixers. They always seem to induce mud, noise, and feedback problems compared to Bose's own T1 Tonematch digital mixer. The T1's mic &amp; instrument presets are the bomb.

However... a friend brought his new Soundcraft 124FX to a gig over the weekend and used it with his Bose L1 Compact and ran his guitar and mic as well as another player's guitar and mic into this little wonder. Very impressive!

The vocals were clean and crisp as were the guitars. EQ on the vocals consisted of just a bit of cut on the lows and a smidge boost on the highs. Very little of either...just a touch. The reverb, when adjusted properly to a level of "barely noticeable" were very sweet and transparent, not at all cavern-y, annoying, or muddy-ing.

I have owned a number of mini-mixers in the past, and this one, especially for the money is unbeatable. I have not bought one, as I already own three Bose T1s, but if I wanted to add another, this would be my choice.
Small footprint, nice layout, Clean three-band EQ, onboard FX.
Solid case, well built
Come on....a steal!

Am loving it, sound, looks, and quality.
I mainly bought it for Phantom power, but it has so much more. I found a go to verb #15 Hall, really nice, possibly a tad dark, but I prefer this over to bright. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and quiet this mixer is, and at the same time lots of output to my recording device. Possibly more inputs than I need, but better that than not enough. I like the fact that it's got an on/off switch, unlike it's Behringer look a like. The manual had a nice English feel to it, right down to the spellings, and was quit comprehensive. I love the Soundcraft mistique, lends nicely to my old world consciousness.
I had to send the first one back, due to FX knob not working. The next one works perfectly, hopefully for ever. The build seems to be very good. The transformer seems to run a little warmer than most, but never gets hot. All the knobs have a nice smooth feel, especially the slider, nice. It's got the really cool Soundcraft side panels, add to the quality appeal.
I got it on sale, seems to be a steal.

    Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

    I've had it about a week, and used it in my studio to record some guitar parts, as well as on a performance (soundscape/ambient noise oriented). It works as it should...but I really mourn the loss of the Aux Return. Inputting the returns from the FX Send to one of the stereo tracks results in loss of control over individual sources having that effect applied, and the effect really does not come through very well even so. I have gone back to using a separate mixer that DOES have an Aux Return and then I bus that signal over to a separate input on the Soundcraft.

      so obviously a soundboard is not going to feel good after being dropped once, but my board has been dropped 2x by someone other than myself. Not good. Despite it being abused, it still does well. one of the main outputs is not usable anymore, but what can you expect after a fall onto hardwood? We used it for a monitor mixer. Works very well for that application. Good little board.

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        I was looking for a replacement for the Mackie Profx12, which was too big for my needs and of which I suspected the sound was a bit compromised. When I got this mixer the effects did not work, so I returned and now have one that works flawlessly. The sound is much much better with this mixer, vocals, guitar and bass are crystal clear. We run out from this mixer to a Bose Compact, and now the sound is great. I do notice that the eq controls really need to be cranked to make a noticeable (to me, at least) difference, but the result is quite pleasant. This is a small mixer, fits perfectly on top of my Genz 9.0 bass head. My recommendation is that you put some kind of felt-type feet on the bottom as there is no rubber feet and the plastic can be a bit slippery. Overall, wonderful product.

        Not the Quality I had expected

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        The sound is great...but Soundcraft obviously cut some corners on this one. Failed within 3 hours of use. Sending this one back for a refund.
        Has plenty of features. Effects are nice, but lack of mute switches, and lack of XLR outputs leave something to be desired.
        When I fired it up, it sounded amazing. Within the first 3 hours of use, it started popping and cracking, as well as picking up a radio station. An hour later, it completely stopped working at all. I expected much more than that from Soundcraft.
        If the item does not work after 1 day, it has no value.

        great little mixer!

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        I use this to mix mics and whatever else (it has 4 stereo channels too that can be used in mono as well!) into my Bose L1. Unlike another inferior brand I tried with less features, this unit has zero noise and sounds GREAT! I actually ran just this without monitors into my Bose at a gig where we had to fit into a very small space. It worked great. IF YOU WANT A GOOD MINI MIXER FOR YOUR BOSE POLE SYSTEM- THIS IS IT!!!
        For its size, this thing has just about everything you would need. Anything else, you would be needing a bigger unit anyway. It has so many channels, and all in a package that is not much larger than lesser 2 xlr input units. The power adapter plug could be made sturdier, but its a minor thing.
        This is a QUIET unit! I tried a different brand that had less channels and there was poor sound and noise. This one- ZERO noise, and GREAT sound. It seems that sometimes you do get what you pay for.
        I got this for half price on the "Stupid Deal of the Day," but even at regular price, it's a good deal. Extremely quiet and good solid sound quality. I haven't even used the effects yet- a small bonus to have effects built into such a small unit.

        Defective FX, Sent back

        By Carlos Colon

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        Couldn't get the FX to work, only added some cracked noise when engaged. The rotary FX selector felt loose as if the connection was loose from the main board. Sound was OK, but decided to save more for a higher quality mixer.

        Notepad 124FX Mixer Review

        By Jerry McNutt

        from KY, USA

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        I really like this unit. I will be using it for car shows and small live sound events for years to come.
        The unit has a very low noise floor; very little hiss. Overall the sound is very good. Construction is very good. The knobs are well centered and align very well with the detents. It is a high quality unit that is well thought out. The only compliant I have is that the Effects send is post fader; I typically like a pre-fader send for the effects or monitor sends. I adapted and use the unit as is. I have recoomended it to others and they have purchased the unit and all like it.
        The quality is very high on this unit. The fit and finish is very good. Details like the knobs being well centered and alinging very well with the detents show that the qaulity is very high.

        124FX - Great Mixer

        By Steve Daniels

        from Michigan

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        My experience with the product, was great.

        My experience with MF (very fitting abbreviation) has been par. Buy 1 or 2 items, return them multiple times to get a product that works, and has not been used / abused by someone then returned, wait around 4 different days playing cat and mouse with the UPS drivers, then have my review moderated by MF because it is not favorable to their company. Even though, it is a great review of the Soundcraft 124 FX. I would recommend this mixer to anyone.
        The features are great on this little mixer. The effects, quite useful. The service from MF? Horrible, at best.
        The quality of the Soundcraft is just as you would expect in a world class company.

        The quality of their distributor, sub-par. They tried to pass not one, but 2 USED mixers on to the consumer, who paid for and expected a NEW product.
        For the price I paid, I couldn't believe the value.

        And if mixer number 4 shows up in new condition, and is not the junk that someone else returned, that will be a great ending to a month long experience of buying 1 piece of equipment. (For some strange reason, my reviews are not being posted.) It is almost like MF does not want my experience to be shared with their potential customers. Odd.

        Amazing small format mixer!

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        It's a Soundcraft...you really can't go wrong there! Great quality, great sound, and tons of features in a small, portable unit. Love it!
        TONS of features packed into this little mixer! Does not have a "wall-wart" power supply, but rather a nice long cord with the transformer nicely placed in the center of the cord run. FX are great! Love having that on a portable mixer, plus it has a TAP TEMPO built right in for the effects! Phantom power, and 8 ACTUAL CHANNELS!
        Soundcraft makes fantastic gear. Nice and weighty (but not too heavy), slider and knobs work flawlessly. Tried it with a Beta 58 through a set of powered speakers...sounded very warm, very clear!
        to be fair, I got this at nearly half price when it was the SDOTD, and I couldn't be happier with the price! Even at full price, it's a great mixer.

        OMG! Analog Heaven!

        By Todd Mo

        from Erie, PA

        Comments about Soundcraft Notepad 124FX Mixer with Effects:

        Just received the SOund Craft Notepad 124FX Mixer yesterday. Hooked it up side by side with my Behringer 1202FX as I wrote earlier to do a "A - B". Wow! I compared them using same mic (Blue 200) and same speaker - powered Behringer 208. Used same EQ or very similar settings. SoundCraft was HANDS-DOWN clearer &amp; cleaner. Even my wife and my 9 year old daughter could hear the better difference in my singing voice (when I compared the two) thru the SoundCraft. Now, the Behringer will be my back-up - SOundCraft is my starter! Effects, although digital, were better quality also. Would replace it even at the full price. Not going back! I love alota Behringer stuff, but they take a back seat to this mixer IMHO.
        This Sound Craft Notepad 124FX Mixer has the same exact features and lay-out of my Behringer 1202FX mixer. Same exact footprint/size except the SoundCraft is thicker/taller by about 3/8 inch.
        Wow. I wasn't expecting much - that's why I'm so surprised. I was just buying a back-up for my Behringer 1202FX mixer which I've used for 3+ years. THe Specifications say "Analog" mixer. And it must be. Very, very clean &amp; clear channels.
        Got this on MF's Stupid deal for a great price. 10+
