FWIW, I have logged in quite a few mixing hours on the following I see often...Jeepfrk97 said:Im wondering what kind of sound boards you work with or have worked with!?!
Yes, I have heard similar stories...Nephilim said:Oops... add the Mackie 24.8 up there.
Since I've only used the 24.8 and the Europa in a 40ch config; I have to go with the Europa - sure, it has little quirky Soundcraft things such as having Cut and Solo right next to each other, but the fact is that Soundcraft got it right, and Mackie unfortunately has some manufacturing issues that need to be sorted. Besides... the meters on the Europa are pre-fader and pre-mute. Very handy for live work, whereas the 24.8 meters are post mute post fader. Good for recording, baaaaad for live
EDIT: technically the CFX-20 is a 24 channel desk, but four of those are paired stereo, so that doesn't count. Besides, it's a CFX - it doesn't come close.
