    You can set up the reaper routing matrix so you can totally go through the mixer.
    With the limited ins and outs of the interface you could still set up sub mixes.
    Say like in reaper you take all your drums to two outs then bring that into the desk in two input channels.
    Drums 2 physical faders, guitars 2 faders , etc.
    But you probably already knew that.

    The handsonic is awesome for home recording if you're a drummer! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZwJj32cwiw

    Don't know if it applies to that one but some of the Spirit PSUs were unreliable and are now tricky to source. If you intend to build a recording system around that mixer, start looking for a spare NOW!

    Good work, can we also perhaps cull a couple of the other stickies whilst we're here, 6 is too many, I reckon and there are a couple which have outlived their usefulness..

    None of the Soundcraft PSU's are unreliable by design. The smaller mixers just have an external transformer. Easy enough to source. Ubfortunately with a proprietary connector. But if you need to, it's a good opportubity to replace ith with fi a 3. Pin mini XLR.

    The serious mixers have excellent external PSU's. The only problem is that a number of them came with a slightly underpowered PSU in some configs. If you put that one in a hot rack, it would die prematurely. Just like with most other brands...
    MB Pro, FF400, AKG C451-C1/CK8, NT1, B5, MD21, Korg RC168, DEQ830, ADA8000...

    The problem supply I saw a picture of was an SMPS PCB. There was a heatsink for the switching device (MOSFET?) and mounted very close to it were two electrolytic capacitors. The heat from the sink cooked the caps and caused premature supply failure.

    I subsequently read that the poorly designed supply was NOT of Soundcraft's designers doing! Some beancounter insisted on an out of house PCB.

    Found that ^ You can see the "browning". Not read it through as yet.

    hi all,

    Dunno if this is the right thread for this one..as a starting sports announcer i'm doubting between a soundcraft notepad 12fx and a xenyx x1204usb.
    Mainly laptop with SSPro for the music and a mic needed.Also need to be rugged enough to go into the backpack to travel.
    read some good things about both already but still not really made a decision

    If you are set on getting a USB mixer make sure it has 24 bit converters.
