Wow that's a good price.

Can anyone confirm something that I can't (while surfing the web on my phone).
Do the outputs have Xover filters?   And are Matrix mixes possible (using the Auxes I assume).

I know these are simple (RTFM) questions, but I'm having trouble finding it quickly, and this deal may sell out fast.


Matrix mixes are available, aux, vca and sub groups as well.

Aux outs have variable LPF/HPF filters.  Not specifically for x-over use. Tapping about on the demo I was unable to change the slope of the filter.  On the channels, the filters have selectable 12, 24 and 36 dB slopes available.  I may have missed something on the aux filters...

Not to piss on the party bit last year I stopped buyong things that were a good deal.

Every 6 months we revisit our purchasing plans and buy what we need not what is on sale or catches someone's eye.

You are more experienced, wiser, more disciplined, and make more money at this than I do.

I have something to aspire to.  It is why I hang out here.

Think of such expenditures as tuition at the Ye Olde Skool of Harde Knox.  You might do well or might be a waste, but until you acquire enough Harde Knox you won't know.

A decade+ ago, I bought an original silver-faced Yammy O1v.  $400 tuition to wrap my head around this whole "mixing with ones and zeros" stuff that the kids were all excited about (I'm an old Analogue Guy).  I'm glad I did; I still own the mixer and it gets used a couple times a year - in some respects it's still superior to a number of new compact mixers - and I learned that digital mixing was the best way for me to deliver on sonic promises I made to clients.  I've blown $$ on stuff that didn't pay back, as well.

Hopefully the UI24 will provide you with growth opportunity.  And you can always sell it if you don't see any value in owning it...

I need another mixer for a gig next weekend. This just happened to be great timing for a special. I was already writing a PO for a UI16 when I found out about the PSSL deal.

So I ended up spending an extra $100 and got quite a bit more mixer. Something I could do a full band on instead of dragging the X32 out.


Not to piss on the party bit last year I stopped buyong things that were a good deal.

Different people have different decision drivers/budgets/etc.

So you're not pissing on the party....I will still buy 'good deals' even without a true business need.  I will buy things that sound 'a little better' even if they don't make me more money.
I do make money playing music, but it is not my source of real income.  (and I fully understand that it is for a lot of folks on this board).

Why do I mention this?
Because sometimes people ask for opinions on Mixer A vs. Mixer B....and they get 10 responses of "tell me why you really need a new Mixer", rather than "Yes, B sounds better than A.
I understand people are trying to share what has made their business successful....but some people are not looking for that advice.
