I had the opportunity to use this mixing desk one hour long.

On first impression it's rather intuitive and clear, and it has a logical layout. You have a full channel strip in front of you where you usually have the bar graphs.

It's quite intuitive and user-friendly. You can assign different colors to the tracks, which is very practical.

Cons: the touch screen is too small. The check boxes in the menus are too small. The buttons seem too fragile. You might end up with one between your fingers. There's a button labeled "mix" that allows you to flip between fader and aux send modes. It's a bit surprising because usually this sort of button allows you to assign a track to the main mix. No fader is assigned to the master. So you can reserve a fader for the main mix but you can't use it for other layers anymore (!!!). Silly.

As a summary, this mixing desk could have been great but it shows some flaws common to first-generation products. And it is extremely expensive.

I had the opportunity to find a festoche
Rather used to and unconditional Yamahas and Digidesign, I was ready to discover this new tool
In the end, I found it a bit soft (as Allen & Heath Souvant) average correction, just a little effect
Finally, if there is that AC will be in store with but I think putting an Avalon or Manley behind AC arrange sauce
I stand by my choice on a PM5D and M7CL, SC 48 (if any)

I have the opportunity to work with this console regularly and being accustomed to analog consoles (to live) and not particularly a fan of digital tables (the provider did not have the choice), I admit I had trouble the beginning to grip.
The interesting part is the portion that lies in place of bar graph and allows to quickly adjust the gain, gate, EQ, compressor limiter.
Against by the fact I find it unfortunate not to have left a blandness to the master. Then you have to think back to each setting to disable the track to the mix button to return to the main mix, otherwise if you go up a fader, no change on the facade but the musician who will make the face to it have exploded ear with excess are grata in ear monitor.
The effects are not very convincing (compressor ineffective), the touch screen hard for my big fingers, quick I think Digidesign's Venue is much better.
I prefer to remain a big fat analog + rack effect than to work on the console (but I had no choice, therefore, it fits!)

I had the opportunity to discover this console for an hour, so this advice is worth what it's worth.
From first glance, it is fairly easy, with an area clear and well-organized. It was in front of you, where usually there are the meters, a full slice.
It's pretty easy and intuitive. We can also assign different colors to the tracks, convenient to navigate quickly.
In the least I can say that the touch screen is too small. Check boxes in the menus are very narrow. The buttons look very fragile. We are afraid that we are in the fingers. A button called "mix" mode allows pinball "faders" mode for shipments. Beware, it can be misleading, this term (usually "mix" means that the track assigned to LR mix, but not here). There is no master fader assigned. It can therefore be a block, but at the expense of what is in the sub-bottom layers (!!!). Completely useless.
Finally, to summarize, a console that could be terrible, but suffers serious errors of youth. And the price is prohibitive.
