Midas Pro doesn't have parametric on outputs? Really?

It does but you have to pick between parametric or graphic.  They have a work around which doesn't allow you to pull the graphic up on the faders.  Or the other work around forces you to  use a Matrix for your outputs to get a limited parametric eq.

Weird. I can't think of any other desks I've used that are like this, off the top of my head.

While the m7 is not my favorite desk it is fairly widely accepted. If your getting a good deal great. My last advice would be to look at your workload over the last year and see if this combination would have fit the bill most of the time. Like I said if YOU. Are the operator it doesn't matter what it is but if you are needing to meet even regional riders a LS9 might even be a better choice from a business perspective.

When would an LS9 ever be preferred over an M7 with regard to rider acceptance???

Never.  But it is cheaper.  Which might still make it a better business decision....

Yeah, but the UI sucks.  I can accept the "average Yamaha" sonics but I hate navigating it.  An 01V96 is faster and easier to get around on and it shares many of the same UI concepts.  Not sure exactly what it is that throws me off but I'd rather use a DM1000 or an expanded 01V96.

i actually had this same problem.  Their Centralogic is a pretty major departure from previous UIs.  i did get the hang of it fairly quickly, but you're right.  it was off putting at first.  And i, like you, am VERY comfortable on an 01v96.

What I was trying to imply (going back to my original post) was that in some situations a ls9 may be preferred over a pro1. Simply because it would be much more comfortable to operate for many people.
