Disclaimer: my experience doesn’t come from owning it but rather trying it out at a store. For it’s size, what it offers is great. But one of the (non-essential) features that really drew my to it was the scanning in combination with panning. I intended to use that for very subtle effects. However, doing so is impossible because there is a “step” at the beginning of the scanning curve, when a channel starts being affected by it: it jumps from 0 gain to some gain, which is really frustrating.
If I remember correctly also the faders are something like a gain offset — fader at bottom doesn’t mean the channel is closed (unless the top pot is at minimum), which is something I’m not a fan of.
I would have really liked to like it because the specs and sound are great, but I don’t. I’m dawn more and more towards RxMx for it’s butter smooth scanning and flexible routing, although I’ll have to cover panning from another angle.
