And where are people supposed to go to learn all these fancy programming and set up tricks on these consoles?

The classes that Digico puts on are pathetic, at best. And I don't think Avid even bothers to do any training classes at all. So, unless you're an All-Star level mix engineer and can afford to buy your console of choice or work for a production company that is willing to shell out a $1/4 million for one your SOL.

So Andy B, what's up with your dislike of the S6L?

Not dislike, just lack of understanding. Just trying to keep an open mind. It's easy to see the attraction to the DiGiCo and Yamaha stuff (and even the X/M32), even before I used them, so just wanting to educate myself more on what's good about the S6L. I will have to use it more and more now that it's becoming as popular as the SC48, so trying to get a feel as to what all the fuss is about and possibly learn some tricks and workarounds for the "gotchas" I've experienced.

Scovi has created dozens of labs and resulting videos about the more arcane features of the S6L. Avid has not done a good job of organizing them in a progressive and thematic way.

Nope. That's one of the things on my list of things that (for me) make this console more difficult than others for throw-and-go.

It's my understanding that the L-ISA system and object based mixing integrate better on Digico and Yamaha consoles than it does with Avid also.

Videos aren't worth shit unless you have a console sitting right in front of you to work on.

I know that Gareth Owen uses the Avid S6L on a lot of his West End, Broadway, and Broadway tours. So they must be doing something well for his design and mixing criteria. But like others have pointed out, those aren't throw and go shows.

Here's what I like about the S6L:
1. Lots of inputs and outputs
2. Scene management for some reason is easier to "see" at a glance, as to what will be recalled and what won't.
3. Gain sharing "just works", doesn't require much thought or effort to make it work
4. Multi-Select is handy once you figure it out

Somebody needs to buy a S6L and give it to David Schumann.
