    This is a beautiful board; the effects are actually better than my Behringer- the only problem is it didn't fit in my Odyssey rack- works after a small modification-

      Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

      Versatile, compact, and easy to use mixer with 10 pre channels, great set-up functions, compression, and nice effects. Three aux channel provide ability to provide at least two submixes in combination with a general monitor out, I have not yet used the USB port. We didn't need the extra channels for a drum submix as the drummer uses his own mixing counsel that goes into one stereo channel on this board. If you do need to mix in five or more drum mics you will probably need to consider the 20 channel version.

        Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

        Bought this for a mix of recording and live sound, so far everything is good on it. This unit is very quiet, not a lot of excess static like you get with other units. It really has about 8 channels out if you mix the groups and aux outs right which allows me to record a while drum kit.

        Effects are ok, not great, they do add some overhead that makes you more seseptable to feedback. Personally I don't think you should ever rely on the mixer for effects, many other ways to do it that are way better.

        I haven't used the USB yet but I plan too.

          Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

          I bought this to replace another well-known mixer that failed just out of warranty. I was surprised at how quickly these things just keep getting better and better. Does professional applications very well.
