Hi tED

I replaced the Mackie 1202 in my live looping setup with a Roland 
M160, and I've been pretty happy with it. 16 channels, 4 sends (1 
pre-fader) no EQ. Even though it's older, it's been way more reliable 
than the Mackie, I was replacing pots in it about every 3-4 months. 
Sounds good, not a ton of headroom, but if you watch your levels, it 
sounds excellent.
