Be aware that the required USB-B cable is not included in the box, and must be purchased separately. NOTE: a regular USB cable will not work; look up the difference.
Although this is the first mixpad I've ever used, but I'm very happy with the value. I'm using it to produce podcasts and livestreams with multiple people, and this was the only reasonably priced mixer with a USB interface and four powered xlr inputs for multiple condenser microphones. I was on a tight schedule, and the controls were dead easy to learn in under a day, but I wish I had known that it required a somewhat uncommon cable. This information is nowhere to be found in the product description or the manual, and I had to guess what to buy based on the shape of the port, having never encountered a B-type connector before. Otherwise, this would be a 5-star review, this is a great entry-level mixer that doesn't require a whole slew of peripherals.
