What analog consoles also offer you DAW control as well?

I can think of the SSL 900W, but am unsure of other consoles that are out there that offer this. I know the API offers automation for an extra price, but I don't believe it controls your DAW. To me if your going to spend 40 - 50K on a analog board, it would be best if you could control your DAW with it as well. That is what makes the SSL 900W so appealing. Otherwise you need a Mackie controller and several extenders someplace in your studio as well. Of course Pro Tools has their wondeful controllers, but for their price, they don't offer you the warm character of the new Neve or API consoles.

Any current SSL console does that:
Matrix, AWS900 and Duality

I can think of two of them right off the bat.
The cheapest one I can think of is the Yamaha N12 which is pretty good for it's price. Article Preview - Yamaha N12

Allen & Heath ZED R16 which is a step up from the Yamaha. Article Preview - Allen & Heath ZED R16 If I needed a analog mixer with good mic pre's I would consider this board seriously.

Of course you could go with Yamaha or Tascam's digital mixers as well but they of course only offer digital EQ's and effects not analog.

Are you thinking of FF2 for your API? Do you already have FF?

Does that allow you to use your mixer as a DAW controller? If so, what features does it offer. If you have transport, faders, solo, mute, and automation, that would be half the battle.
