Just thought I'd throw this in for some food for thought. First let me 'splain... I'm old. Been toting gear for a long time. Getting new knees will help but thats not going to happen sooner than later....So...live shows are slowing down since I'm the main PA/Lights owner /mover....I've been needing to compact things for awhile now and finally did it. The new board is the QSC Touch Mix 16. Its really quite good and its the size of a laptop. Comes with a dongle and an app for the iPad so you can control it from afar. The new release of the WiFi protocol was a week or so ago so I'm going to reset everything and get with the program. Powerful and deep sounding EFX, 20 X 10 architecture, the 16 mic pres have the gain control right on top but everything else is either touch-screen or there's a rotary control you can use for fast and furious tweaking. And it sounds great. Check it out.
