I recently discovered this mixer and it blows me away reading the manual and stuff. It would make a great mixer for both live and in the studio. 16 channels straight to a computer through firewire, oh man I would love to record live shows like that. Ultimately I think this is what I'm saving up for. Does anyone dislike this mixer or have any comments on it? The only thing I've read about someone complaining about it is because it sends the channels to a computer pre EQ and other effects and fader. I honestly wouldn't want it to send post all of that anyway, thats the purpose of having all of the seperate tracks, so you can mix later.
