I'm dying to hear some user feedback on this thing... release when?
Wonder how good it actually is, or if it will be a hodgepodge of some good features, and real junk... I mean, this is no $50 DI box, if it goes down, you will have to pay to service it. If Uli B. is upping their quality control, they have a lot of ground to make up first...
Berhinger has improved their mic pre's, effects, and converters since they stopped making the DDX which I really enjoyed having in my home studio. If they have improved things by 40% on this new unit, it could be a real winner for the home/project studio owner. I never liked the Yamaha 01V96 with those lame faders. Everything was so squashed together on that unit and even the improved DM 1000. Yes I know the Behringer won't be a good as the DM 1000 but the work flow will be better and they cannot be overlooked, plus it's thousands cheaper for us home studio guys.
Well, here's the first video I've found of the mixer and it's giving me GAS BIG TIME ! This thing is very well thought out and if it sounds good and is reliable, it's going to sell like hot cakes ! The support for multi track hard-drive recording alone is awesome !
If the QC is good on that thing, it's going to be a killer setup for the price ! I didn't see any ADAT/Spdif/AES-EBU/Wordclock though... That's OK really as I already have them on my main interface where I'll be sending 8 analog busses from the X32 if I get it... But just in case, it could prove useful.
