    Ok boys. Here are my requests:

    1. Please don't recomend the BBE Sonic Maximizers (haha).
    2. Don't have a thin skin.
    3. Be kind.
    4. Know that ANY GEAR + inexperienced engineer or bad engineer = bad sound. ANY GEAR + great engineer = generally great sound, or at least the best that it can be. You cannot buy great gear and expect it to do the job. I know that I have heard some of the best mixes in small clubs, with unsuspecting systems, by guys that knew their gear intimately.

    But I saw Eddie Kramer's Waves Classic Bundle Experience event. He showed us how he uses them, therefore if I use them just like him, I'll be able to get a great sound like him, right?!

    Uhhh ... right?

    There is a point where you will lose the ability to do the job right...when you have speakers mounted in certain ways (horizontal 2.5m up), no outboard gear, or when you have one 10-band EQ to assign to either Aux 1, or the Mains...

    But yes, a rack of Behringer gear could be made to sound great (strike that) good.

    I used to sell it when it was Barcus Berry Electronics. I never liked it then, and I don't like it now.

    Let me rephrase that. I don't like when people buy it and use it outside of it's intended purpose. It IS NOT a replacement for EQ. It is NOT something for purists. It jacks with the phase relationships of frequencies and then boosts or cuts them.

    If you need better speakers, buy better speakers. If you need EQ, buy EQ. These un-intelligent one space wonder boxes are one-trick ponies, and are an example of how companies market things that no good engineer would ever have need of, if everything in the chain had correct polarity, phase, gain structure, etc. You will never see any of these in a rack at a A or B list sound provider's gig. They are bottom feeder boxes for a reason.
