Wouldn't be surprised to find that they both use the same chip for that function. I think A&H also used it in some of their products.

... and on the down side... There... Is... No... Manual... :protest:

There's a 'quick start guide', but nothing, nowhere about the detail of the routing buttons etc. I'll work it out by trial and error, but it's not clever Mr B. Don't advertise a manual in the QSG if there isn't one available...

I like the gear a lot and it suits my needs, but I'm just getting all nostalgic for the detailed manuals that the likes of Soundcraft and Mackie used to produce...

A lot of Behringer stuff only now seems to have a QSG rather than a full manual. Maybe they don't expect it to last long enough to make it worth producing one? By the time you've read the QSG, it's time to send it back.

Cheeky!
Also a bit weird as they do proper manuals for their xenyx range.

People have been asking questions about it for years, but still only the QSG.

Doh! Sorry, so it is. Let me rephrase that, I've had full manuals for all three of my Xenyx mixers! But as we know, anecdote is not the plural of data... :)

Actually, 'data' is the plural of 'datum' :D

Given what a petard is I don't think it's something you'd really want to own up to.

Not without getting a call from the counter terrorism police.

But I fear we may be drifting off topic... ;)

Note that 'petard' is an anagram of both 'parted' and 'depart'; both appropriate in this instance.
