I am currently using PT7 and looking for a Digital control board. I have looked at the Control|24, however, it is dated, but inexpensive. I have been reading on the new Mackie Digital X Bus, and I am interested in it as well. It runs at retail, 4k more than the Digidesign, however, it has 2 15" touch screen monitors built in. Anyone have any thoughts about a great control surface for a home studio that has all of the mixing capabilities on a quality level? I also looked at the Yamaha Digital CMc7? or something like that...... Any input would be appreciated.
