« on: December 23, 2015, 04:12:24 PM »

original, first generation of the product, circa mid-late 1990s

the later revised "usb" version, distinguishable by the white buttons on the front and usb port on the back, circa early 2000s period


updated version of the earlier non-XT model:

Sixteen convenient, one-touch front-panel presets (8 factory and 8 user programmable). Software console for both Mac and Windows provides comprehensive routing, merging, and muting.
