def seems interesting, but as with all hardware the work flow is what im truly interested in. I have a sort of knee jerk reaction when thinking about a pioneer sampler tbh, but I'll def be keeping tabs on this thing. If only out of curiosity. 1500 bones seems a bit steep too, but i havent fully sussed out all the specs yet tbh.
My search for an analogue mixing console continues. Came across the Soundcraft Signature 22 mtk today on the net. Not quite "out" yet fully (shipping i think, but hard to get), but holy moly this thing seems perfect for me.
That USB routing is pretty much exactly what I've been looking for. Just waiting till more people get their hands on the thing and hear back on how the usb conversion actually sounds. I was pretty settled on an A&H zed 14, but the usb conversion sounds pretty bad. Which means I'd have to shell out a decent amount for a separate interface with enough i/o for my needs.
The going price for this 22 channel mixer is 800, pretty incredible. The Zed 14 is 400+sound card ($500~)
