Reviews around heath (5.00 of 5)

  • And some of the effects on the comparably featured Allen & Heath Zed 10FX are actually awesome and editable on the fly, which greatly enhances a live performance
  • Needing a mixer that day ended up getting an Allen & Heath mixer and much happier for it
  • If you could live with knobs instead of faders I'd recommend a similarly priced Allen & Heath ZED10FX as a vastly superior alternative to this Mackie board.

Reviews around sound (4.26 of 5)

  • Very clean sound, I had no issues with the USB port, and I purchased this back in 2012
  • Great size mixer, good sound and perfect for what I ordered it for
  • Excellent sound, easy controls, very responsive and is better than advertised.
  • Negative reviews on this board made me a bit apprehensive, but, remembering the lush, punchy sound of my trusty old VLZ pro 1202 that I picked up well used and then recorded and occasionally gigged with for nearly a decade before its main outs started to give, I decided to give it a try
  • Very clean sound, I had no issues with the USB port, and I purchased this back in 2012

Reviews around effect (4.03 of 5)

  • Fortunately my Pro Fx8 is under warranty--I plan to get it fixed and to replace it with Allen & Heath ZED60-10FX that also has faders and same number of channels and the same great effects as the older ZED10 FX
  • The sound effects are kinda nice to have but since i'm using this as a podcast mixer its not really relevent.
  • Maybe these effects would be adequate for a solo acoustic guitar/vocals-type gig, but for my electronic music project I require something a lot more substantial.
  • The effects are excellent, and feel and quality of parts are wonderful.

Reviews around board (3.86 of 5)

  • but if you were going to DJ and send the signal from a computer to the sound board and out to mains this is a great board.
  • I found the board to be very noisy when connected to my computer via USB and by the looks of reviews
  • At this point, I am still running the board through its paces, but thus far so good.
