Mackie CR1604 mixer.

This is such a good mixer, I bought it new well over 10 years ago and the only problem it's ever given me is a dusty mute-switch on one channel. The EQ is 3-band with a fixed midrange (no parametric) but I've never found it a problem, it's amazingly musical, the desk sounds quite clean and spacious. It also makes quite a nice distortion if you overdrive the input stage, good for dirty 909 kick drums and so on.


EXAMPLE SOUNDS

CR-1604 - TR-909 kick drum with increasing gain leading to a nice overdrive effect.
