This is a great space-saving, workflow enhancing mixer. I'm not going to mention specs here, but do note that if you need MIDI connections, this mixer doesn't provide any. So, you'd have to look for a separate interface for those. With that said, this is a fantastic mixer for vocals, guitars, drums, or anything you can plug into it. The beauty comes in ease of use once you get used to how the associated Master Fader APP works. From there it's freedom, freedom, freedom. Freedom to assign ins and outs. Freedom to assign other iPads or iPhones for shared control or allowing performers to adjust their own monitor levels. Freedom to go anywhere within WiFi range to make level or eq adjustments. Once you're racked and plugged in, you no longer have to worry about long floor snakes, nor spilled drinks in your faders. Bands and venue owners will love the lack of a mixer on the floor allowing audiences better site lines and more space. Connects to DAWs, and even records shows if you add a dedicated harddrive. It takes up about 5 rack spaces with airflow and room for the router and the hardrive, and any cabling you may need to do to connect outboard gear from behind. Well worth the pricepoint in a 32-channel mixer.
