As far as routing the Venice offer more auxes and groups. The X-Desk offer a real center.
Only you knbow your needs.........don't let GS members tell you what you need.
I've worked with both.........and both options sounds good.
Actually I need EQ but not pre's. So, the biggest difference for my use is that the venice would have the EQ but no center section. The SSL would have the monitoring facilities but no EQ.
No built in EQ means I need outboard, and cheap rackmount EQ's probably won't sound as good as the venice EQ.
With venice I guess I could use my dangerous DBox for monitoring, but I need to sell it to buy the venice.......eh.
