I don't remember saying anything about any system where everything could be seen on a single page or screen. If I did, point that out please and I'll retract my statement which was;

"There are better and more intuitive methods that could be used to simplify the method(s) used to achieve the desired results."

What I said about viewing everything on a single screen, was in reference to the most beneficial aspect of the grid system. Which, in my opinion, makes it the easiest, and fastest method of routing. It wasn't in reference to anything you said.

I understood your statement as saying there exists a general routing system that is "better and more intuitive" than the grid system that was being discussed. Were you not referring to a routing method? If not, I apologize. If you were, again, I'm curious to know which method you think is better than the grid system.

All this talk really makes me want to pull the trigger on the impact or expression - off topic - I thought the original price of $2799 was a good deal - so the price drop makes the decision more difficult - to scribble or not to scribble - impact vs expression - great thread by the way

Using an Expression on a musical right now, I'm used to using tape so I don't miss the scribble-strips, even with 52 channels in use. I just put one strip of tape above the faders for layer A and one below for layer B, using the last five Mixes as stereo Groups (leads, kids, ensemble men, ensemble women, and orchestra).

I don't think that anyone believes that you can't get along with tape .... good lord knows all of us have done this.

The real issue is that most of us no longer want to "get along" with it.  At this price point in a mixer, LCD scribble strips are the new norm .... kind of like power windows ;)

You have windows?  I'm jealous.

I hear that, and my company has a Performer 1 & 3 so I certainly appreciate them when I have them.

But... personally I'd take the Expression over the Impact, I'd rather have the gain knobs for all channels than scribble-strips. That and the reduced channel-count make me a bad fit for the Impact.
