"Tuck it under your arm and it has enough flexibility and connectivity to cope with many basic gigs or sit on the desk plugged into your DAW as an interface and problem solver. A notable bargain.

The new Soundcraft Notepad series consists of three streamlined streamlined mixing surfaces offering Lexicon digital signal processing and USB I/O connectivity for computer-based music recording and playback.  The 12-channel Notepad-12FX is reviewed in the new issue of Audio Media International magazine.

"We don't just need big mixers. We need small mixers and we need mixers we can afford and the new Notepad series from Soundcraft aims to satisfy both these criteria. Available in three formats Notepad 5, 8FX and the 12FX - they are all highly portable and very affordable."

"Each mic channel features a simple three-band EQ. The high and low bands are shelves at 12.5 Khz and 80 Hz respectively while the midband at 2.5 Khz is an asymmetric curve, boost is wide while cut is narrow for your notching. A nice little touch I thought."

“To be honest it would be churlish to complain about any aspect of the Notepad-12FX.  It packs a ridiculous amount of features for the money”.
