Los vumetros se parecen a un equipo de los '80 estropeado
EmiA 09.09.2023
Compre la carbon pre porque hacia click en todas las casillas de lo que necesitaba en elnestudio: 8 previos y ad/da de alta calidad. Y la verdad es que no defrauda, suena excelente.

Sin embargo, le doy 4 estrellas por los vu-metros y los diales que tienen la luminosidad tan baja que no sabes lo que te indican. Ademas uno de los vu-metros, en cuando le entra mas señal el primer led empiezan a lucir mas, como un estereo roto de los '80.
