I don't know any singer that would accept to sign without reverb, even in minimalist venue, and such minimalist eq possibility. I think most will at least purchase one with an aux out for FX, or onboard fx. I see those more for speech, typically, a iphone with a playlist in one and maybe an other source for the audio of your power point presentation or video on the other, and a mic and there you go you have an event, It can be just anything, an art exhibition, a conference, a party... In the end it don't matter, it's a mixer, you can mix 2 stereo sources and a mic, it's cheap. Whatever you do with it don't matter, it just mean that whatever you do is not worth spending more money than that is perfectly fine. Sometime, all that's needed is to be able to understand what the guy or gal is saying over there, it's called public adress not called "the sound of this performance is giving me goosebumps"This thing is supposed to be cheap. I don’t necessarily think it is supposed to be for podcasts as there is only one mic preamp in it. Most podcasts I’m familiar with have multiple participants.
I think this is really for the one or two-man/woman band and/or solo singer/songwriter playing at a cafe or hotel bar. You have a mic input for vocals and then a 1/4” in for guitar (or similar), a line in for keys or drum machine (or similar), and a USB input if you are using a laptop running garage band or something similar to supply drums and bass. Use this to set the levels and connect to powered PA monitors and it’s good enough to get the job done for live music. It can be thrown in a backpack and is easily transportable to/from low key gigs with limited room.
I do not think it is good enough to record with. Not seriously, anyway. But then again, it’s $130.
I’d like to see the analog inputs/outputs also tested because that is the most probable use case for this device.
