The desk is aimed at the live sound market, with ‘boutique-quality’ Onyx preamps and 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters. It offers 16 inputs, eight subgroups and an LR stereo output. It has six aux sends, and supports preset and snapshot automation.

The DL1608 is loaded with a choice of plug-ins on each channel, including four-band EQ, compression and gate plug-ins, plus a full-featured reverb and tap delay and 31-band graphic EQ and limiter on the main and aux outs.
