Yup; I'd spotted that and it's one of my key 'ponder-points' at the mo'. I've yet to read the manual for the 16.0.2, but if I can't put ANY form of EQ on the monitor sends then that would be a significant minus point for me. Apart from that, I'm now VERY interested in the 16.0.2..
Yes, that's a restriction with the 12 channel. You can however apply their 'Fat Channel' to an aux send which gives you some course EQ.
I've now read bits of the manual and homed in on the EQ bits so found out about the Fat Channel EQing.
I think I'm now 95% certain that I'll be going for a 16.0.2. The thought of being able to address the problem that started this thread PLUS have the ability to have FX, compressors and all manner of other tools within the mixer PLUS be able to dispose of my two current analogue mixers, three graphic EQs, two FX units and a rack of compressors is now VERY attaractive indeed. (I may hang-on to two of the graphics - four channels of EQing - until I've tried the 16.0.2 in the field and seen if the EQ available on the auxes gives enough control over the sound musos are asking for. I'm pretty confident, as usually their requirements are simple and I don't need to notch anything as monitor feedback is very rarely an issue with the type of genres I work in.)
Well, who'd have thought I'd end up here at the start of this thread when asking about neutral vocal mics?! Doncha love this place?!
So thanks Bob for that timely and wise advice... I'll buy you a small lemonade next time I see you!
... and if anyone else is interested in the 16.0.2 I found this video very informative: Presonus 16.0.2 Review
