I would also include XL Mixer users as well but I am more curious about the character of the Silver modules on theses mixers. How much of the the mixer do you use?

Good question. Wish I could be part of the answers, but will at least look forward to hearing what other say

Oh, here’s an additional question for the one above. Do you miss the dynamics on every channel?!

I have an AWS console and I use all of it when mixing songs and the workflow is so good I wish I had another 24 channels . I have an xrack with dynamic modules and other outboard compressors, so about 18 of the 24 channels have analog compressors ready at the push of the insert button. I still do use compressor plugins occasionally on larger sessions.

On a Duality at the studio I run out of... It all depends for me; pretty much depends on time. There’s 40-channels of various outboard preamps (and more coming), so the Duality preamps don’t really get used much. But I do track live jamming in the studio sometimes and the Duality-only will get used for that.

I mostly use the SSL EQ for drum tracking; same as when I had a 6048.

On mixing, if I have the time/budget after mixing ITB/summing through the Duality, I’ll fully mix again on the console with outboard gear and all.

Duality... use it only for tracking and only the micpres. Sometimes the faders for PT daw control but very rarely. I’d love to see it go.

gainreduction, not at least summing through it at mix? Or maybe something else? I haven’t compared to just ITB summing. Have you or anything the like?
