Windows 10! From the minute I loaded my studio software onto it (software that had worked like a charm on Windows XP and Windows 7) I knew the stress-free life I had lived for so many years was over.

Alesis 3630, no contest. I spent years thinking all compressors sounded like crap.

I had one of those, too, and sold it a couple of years ago because I didn't think it was making any difference in my live mixes. Now that I know a lot more about how to use a compressor/limiter, I almost bought it back. However, this and many other comments about the 3630 have thoroughly convinced me not to.

Still have mine. Haven't sold it cuz it's worth nothing. Just got an Art Pro VLA 2. Wow, what a difference. No pumping!

Gear Nut
 

Morley ABC switch-box, worthless, well it did cost some money but after that, and useless, it makes groundloops hum/noise even with only one guitar and 1 amp , had to throw it in the garbage-dumpster and the problem went away, nevermore that crap, (no not the band).

- Yamaha AW-4416 The though of it still make me shudder, worst POS ever!

- Little Labs IBP and IBP Jr. Hype. Overcomplicated.

- Avantone Mixcubes Too expensive, mine were buzzing despite the seperate PSU. I'm been using s single Behritone now for years and great and totally reliable at about half the price.
