This thing has been a solid performer with very low noise and great sound. You need to follow the guidelines on setting levels (center levels, then adjust gain). Overall I'm very happy with this.

Pros:
- Phantom power. Can use XLR condenser mics.
- Lots of channels.
- Very clean sound, low noise.
- Good monitoring options (tape/control room/headphones)

Cons:
- A little complicated at first, but soon figured it out. Download the manual online, it has an awesome schematic of how all the ports are wired.
- USB audio interface didn't work for multi-track recording for me (explanation below).

Overall, a great value, but I recommend using a separate audio interface for recording if you are going to multi track.

Multi-track issue:
Symptom: Record one track. Record another playing along with the first track on your monitors. Now listen to the mixed recording. Two tracks are out of sync.
Reason (Theory): My software (logic and ableton live) and/or the OS driver stack cannot account for the latency between the two devices properly. This presents two standard USB audio devices on USB: one with two record inputs, and one with two playback outputs. Since they are two devices, the latency ends up inconsistent with my environment (mac OS X, ableton or logic). On my EMU 0404, however (which is a single device with two ins/two outs, I have no problems).

You may be able to work around this issue by playing with your device latency setting in your audio software. I tried once and failed. I now just use this as a passive mixer to mix down into a dedicated (more expensive) USB audio interface. Still happy with it. This one still works great for a live recording where you are not trying to layer tracks in sync with a monitored track played back on this device.

Your mileage may vary. Please comment as to how multi-tracking worked for you and what your environment is.

Before I begin, a word of caution to people who are new to the wonderful world of "sound reinforcement" - aka, live sound. The Peavey PV6, like most other mixers in this size and price range, is called a "6-Channel mixer." This would lead you to believe - at least, it led me to belive - that it has 6 discrete channels.

Turns out, that's not quite true. It actually has 2 discrete channels, plus Channel 3-4, and Channel 5-6...the latter two being stereo channels (with left and right input jacks). Generally, the left side jack of the stero channel(s) will act as a mono input, so what you really have are four mono channels, or two mono and two stereo channels.

"So what?" you might ask.

Well, for starters, Channels 3-4 and 5-6 share gain, volume, and other controls. So if you have six different inputs (say 4 mics and 2 guitars), you can't adjust the volumes of inputs 3-4 or 5-6 independently. Also, if you have a compact P.A. system, with mono input, you will need some way to combine the signals from 3-4 and 5-6 into a mono signal.

There are workarounds for most of this l this, and they can be as simple as Y-cables, or as complicated as splitter boxes, and/or pre-amps for some of the mics so you can balance the individual input volumes on the stereo channels.

The reason for the lengthy pre-amble is that I learned all this the hard way, by buying a 4-Channel mixer, only to discover that it was, really, a 3-Channel mixer - 2 mono and 1 stereo. [I was counting input jacks, when I should have been counting volume controls.]

I probably should have gone for more channels in the first place, but three channels definitely weren't enough, so that's why I bought the Peavey PV6.

I ordered this mixer in hopes of getting a double-duty solution- 1) a small multi-channel mixer for when I needed to either amplify myself with tracks or a jazz trio or quartet thru my pair of QSC K12 speakers, and 2) a recording interface device for my DAW software (Reaper) to either record my sax, or even record the whole mix of a trio as a memento or even a demo. Unlike that other reviewer, I knew when I ordered that I would only get ONE channel out of the USB, and that to actually get multiple, mixable tracks would require spending a few hundred bucks. If the PV6 USB could do double-duty, I could sell off my Tone Port UX-1 USB recording interface to recoup costs...

For purpose 1, it worked pretty well when testing it out with my PA and mics. I liked how rugged it was and how compact. I was less thrilled about how I could little I could manipulate the tape-in RCA jack input on the rear side for ipod backing tracks. However, it was workable, since I could set the ipod input volume level with the main fader, and custom-adjust the sax mic channel around that.

For purpose 2 (USB recording), however, forget it. I kept getting cyclic and non-pulsatile noise in my recordings with the Peavey, no matter what I tried with respect to the cables, and the power (AC vs DC) of the laptop that was recording. During pauses between my notes, the noise was evident even when I maxed the mic gain to just shy of the point of clipping, and boosted the main fader (which controlled output from the USB to the DAW) up from the bottom by literally only a few mm. Swapping in my UX-1 (all else equal) eliminated the noise, and the pauses between my a cappella phrases were very quiet, studio-quiet.
