Just a quick video. Not sure of the market but someone may find it useful.

There are a few things I do which that would be great for.

Hmmm....that may be nice for acoustic duo gigs.

Bluetooth connectivity for remote seems interesting.  Curious to see how stable it ends up being.

No moving faders. No ethernet control. No thanks.

It can be controlled via usb-midi as well. Faders are catch-and-release and their position can be seen on the scribble.

At that pricing, an XR18 is barely any more for a *lot* more I/O and functionality.

Everything on these is "nearly but not quite".  Nice to have physical faders, and understandable that they're not motorised, but they'd drive you potty.  Unsure about Bluetooth control, too.  At least with a network interface, you have the option of your choice of external router and a hardwired connection if required.

Given that you need an external device to configure this, why not go the whole hog and have a surfaceless mixer.  I actually think the hybrid is confusing.  Yes, it's small, but it's easy to mount a tablet/phone on a mic stand with a stagebox mixer in a more sensible location.

That said, I think I'm not the target market...

The pricing is €199 plus taxes. That video mentioning the price is from Australia and they use AU-dollars. I think that their import taxes are slightly high as well. Not everyone in the world are using US-dollars. :-)

Much can already be controlled by the surface. Only the deep down stuff needs to be accessed from an app.

I think that it is a very cool mixer. I love that it can be powered from usb/battery.

I guess it's designed for "content creators" plus with is being USB powered makes it highly portable. 199€ is about 60€ cheaper than an XR12 so it isn't a huge amount less but it is designed for a different market so cost comparisons are difficult.

Not €299, it is €199.
