from Seems to Work OKI bought this about 2 weeks ago and I used it at a show the day after it came. I put it into the monitor path in an attempt to get a little more volume out of my system. In a live situation, I don't really notice a lot of difference. However, in our practice space, the feedback has been pretty much eliminated. Of course one cannot compensate for poor mic and speaker placement by using one of these. However, we are now able to raise the vocals up to a level where the drums are not drowning them out. Before the guitarists would turn up to be louder than the drummer and the drummer would just hit his drums harder and eventually, the vocals would be lost. At least now, the vocals can keep up until we realize that everything needs to be turned down.I have not used the EQ features on this unit, I bought it mostly for the feedback filtering.I'm always skeptical of Behringer equipment but this unit seems to be well made. The auto-learn and speech filters are nice features. Takes up 1 RU but does not add much weight. I'm hauling it around in the same Gator case as my mixers and I don't notice the added weight at all.
