Should have bought a Behringer. I like cheap mixers that don't catch on fire.

You just need to plug some patch cords into those L & R MAIN OUT jacks. That should help keep the smoke inside.

Not yet. It only just happened a few minutes before I posted the video. I took it outside to let it finish doing its thing first. Will check it out later.

My first instinct when gear catches fire, is too try and stop the burning. I am clearly a lightweight.

Your new track is fire but I think you are running the input a bit hot.

Happened to me with the exact same model : 402/VLZ4. One of the channel input OpAmp fried for "god knows" reasons.
