Oh man, I am a happy man. A NEOS will be at my door soon. I look forward to finding more hybrid thinking engineers out there. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask. After a few years of real hands on use, there is no doubt about the benefits hybrid analog summing has and which products I lean towards. SPL and Dangerous Music Rock. For those lurking and wondering, "should I dive into a lush analog summing system"? Hell Ya! I will be selling my loved MixDream only because I upgraded to this beast. The MixDream is an awesome 16 channel summing amp. I think its the next best choice to the NEOS. Any question on any of this, I'll be happy to share what I have learned. I have a NEOS so I won't be holding back the thrill. Stay tuned... http://www.musicradar.com/gear/tech/recording/mixers/neos-24-2-mixer-562784 Cheers!
