Thanks!
I am very happy with the 8816/8804. Big, punchy. Some color (not as soft and colored as the Mini Mixers). A little mid push, which works fine for me. Good balance overall.

However, recognize I have only tested the 8816 and the Chandler Mini Mixers, so I don't claim to have A/B'ed against the various other mixers.

Functionally, it is the only summer/mixer that meets all of my needs:
(1) Channel level control
(2) Channel panning
(3) Direct Outs (very valuable for me, to feed back to my patchbays and give me more options for multing to effects)
(4) Faders (for real time level adjustments during mixdown.........in addition to automation that I do in Pro Tools). Nothing like having faders. No, they don't have that heavy console feel, but they do the job.
(5) A pair of inputs directly into the mix bus (for the Mini Mixer Outs).

It was wonderful indeed when I heard it.......................and really liked the sound.

Thank goodness. It would have been a real downer if I had not liked what I heard.
