I do belive the Q2 VCAs can be bypassed, used a Q2 live for years and loved it as a live board. But for recording I wouldn't really be drawn to either, maybe if they were modded but that's $150-200 per module times 50 ouch !
Find a nice studio desk!

thanks
all those auxs and that many channels is the need here.
I just was wondering why a studio desk,
is it noisy...

Kris , I don't rknow the circuit but I think if you bypass the VCA you end up with a VCA log fader not a audio log so the fader curve is just strange! The VCA is a bit noisy and less headroom than my FMR ! I thought about a Q2 and almost grabbed one with the rare 8 stereo groups !
The ones I have seen lately have been beat up!
Be prepared for lots of matinance and there is no offical support anymore!
