The ZED-R16 is an exceptional recording mixer with 18 FireWire I/O which can also be uséd as a versatile live front of house mixer. An analogue channel strip so well featured, which sounds this good, is a real find at this level.
The Allen & Heath ZED-10 is an amazing little desk for small band mixing. It's ultra portable for carrying to the gig, and can be used for recording live or in the studio. Guitars can be plugged in directly to the mixer using the specially designed high-impedance inputs, while the mixer has two stereo inputs for MP3/CD players or keyboards.
