    Soundcraft UI 16 Reviews

    Ui16 16-Input Remote-Controlled Digital Mixer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soundcraft UI16 review I installed the UI16 in a Church and it is packed with goodies. Compression is available on all channels is will keep the audio at a desired level.Great EQ. Can record or play using USB drives. Label each channel, set groups and mute groups. First two channels have Guitar effect options. 4 aux outs for personal monitor mix. Each musician can control their own mix with any WIFI device, I was using a $ Chromebook with runs for 8 hours on a charge. You can set with the audience and mix the band with out running a bunch wires. I believe this is the best small mixer for the money, you will not miss the clutter of the old mixers it is just amazing. I highly recommend this over any other mixer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Astounding, but not perfect This is really great for a gigging band. Soundmen across the world will be loosing their jobs. Go to a bar, do a sound check, tweak everything, and save it for that bar. Next time, just plug everything in and recall the setup. Soooo easy. It has awesome reverb, gates, compression, and EQ for every instrument. The auto-feedback suppression is killer. Plug in a thumb drive with mp3 and DJ between sets. And there are no apps to install. Really well thought out. Minor Con 1: With mobile devices I must turn their wifi off and on again to connect. After that, no connection issues unless you go out of range. Minor Con 2: Can't be used with a DAW. Minor Con 3: Just 12 mic inputs. Uggh, I wish it had just two more. If it had 4 more, I would pay double. Very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of gear The product is being used in a commercial meeting setting on a regular basis. First impressions are that it is great to travel with. It is important to upload the latest software onto the mixer but after that its great. The main good points are iPad control but because it is browser driven any device with a browser can control it, Built in Wifi which a lot of the higher end desks don't offer. Double click on the top of each channel sends the channel straight to unity so if you've sound-checked correctly it makes using the desk fast and efficient. I am tempted to buy another one as I've found this desk to be the best 'bang for buck' I've seen in a while.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right out of the Box Broke it in with my first try at a big show \ conference. I had no clue what to expect. It was great being able to be un tethered to the terrible location I had sound being brought in and being able to tune to the room. I've been mixing stage, theater, and various live events for the last 15 years. While reading some of the reviews and I do agree I didn't have knobs and some other things to deal with that I'd be more comfortable with I will say this mixer is a joy to work with at the price point and functionality it provides. I would recommend resetting the network settings and run off of a router versus the built in off of the board it's much more stable over a longer period of time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality for the price Haven't got time to use it too much. Until now I found it as a great mixer. It's great to have 4 auxes + 4 effect (reverb, chorus, delay, room) on each channel, 4 busses. Another great thing is the built in playback & recording on usb memory but I would have liked to be able to select what to record: auxes, busses or master output. Another thing that would have been nice to implement in this mixer is the auto eq on master output based on an RTA mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The heavenly Soundcraft Ui16 We replaced our church's old Mackie analog board with the Soundcraft Ui16 and have heard a noticeable improvement in the overall sound quality - especially with our singers. Several congregants remarked how crisp the sound was. Using the virtual sound board on an iPad was also fabulously easy and has helped in clearing up a lot of clutter on our AV counter. So far we are very satisfied with the Soundcraft Ui16. Plus you can't beat the price!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad control I used this for our Christmas production at my wife's school. I've been working in audio for about 4 years now everything from analog to digital. While this mixer has a lot to offer it fails with the control surface, using only a touch screen has limitations. Much like typing text on a smartphone is fine for short texts, but if I need to type a 1000 word essay a physical keyboard is more practical. Not having sliders, knobs, and buttons limits the work flow of the system. Plus the low quality of the unit was a problem it has rather noisy preamps.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 16 inputs and pad This is a nice little unit but It says 16 channel. I only get 12 inputs and that's not enough to cover most bands and you can not slave other units together to expand it. The ad is also mis leading as well because it shows the control pad which I did not receive Nor does it come with a manual. I guess they want you to figure out everything on your own.

    How good are the mic preamps?
    Asked by: Michael N.
    They are as good or better than Mackie's mic pre's and that certainly is a good thing. Soundcraft is a quality product with an excellent reputation for providing quality and value and reliability at every price point. This mixer is no exception. Depending upon your application, this might be a great choice for you.

    can I use ui 16 as a stagebox?

    can I use ui 16 as a stagebox?
    Asked by: kern
    The Ui16 is a mainly a mixer which is meant to be placed on, or near the stage, and controlled via a tablet or PC. This will not interface as a digital snake for other mixers.

    can you link two sound craft ui boxes to create double the inputs?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    You could always run the output of one mixer into the other, but you'd only be able to control one at a time with a single device. If the UI16 is not big enough for you, consider a larger (and more expensive) mixer.

    The box dimensions are listed as 19 wide by 7 high, but the form is described as floor and I only see holes on the left side handle. Can it be securely mounted vertically in a 4 unit rack in a way that it will withstand local touring use?
    Asked by: George
    And yes, the UI16 can be mounted in a standard rack.
