They have quite a range in price and in features. Some additional signal processors will shape the sound of each instrument if you are mixing a live band. It is a fact that most analog mixing consoles have a built-in four-band parametric EQ that helps to balance the tonal sound and makes space for each individual instrument in the mix. …
