actually the 4 band eq's on the A&H are fucking phenominal. that mid-bass EQ adjustment is the cats meow indeed! it is the key to amazing sound coming out of that mixer. it adds such richness and depth to the bass it is UNREAL.
the more i think about it, the more i want this mixer!
it's got assignable, dual channel VCF filters. who needs effects with those bad boys?
once you experiment with them and get to know them, you can do amazing things (especially if you know your records from edge to edge).
if the filters work like those on the Zone 62 you can save certain filter patterns and recall them at the puch of a button.
btw, i am not an A&H sales rep! i just love their product, i personally think they make the best mixers out there (other than old school Bozak or Urei, but that is an entirely different ballgame. used to love rane, but have come to loathe the sound coming out of them. and don't get me started on pioneer, numark, american, beringer, and all the other bad mixers out there....)
I can't stand the EQs on the A&H. The crossover points are all wrong and don't sound right in the club. The Rane 2016 has a way better EQ section in my opinion, for example when you cut the bass you only cut the bass. On the A&H you don't get enough bass out with low-end EQ then when you hit the low-mid EQ you lose some of the mid-range character.
