Megamix automation opinions

Jay, I noticed that you liquidated your Megamix system in favor of the Mackie unit. What was the knock on Megamix?
If you're out there Drumsound, I'd like to know your opinion of it as well.

I never hooked up the system because "Professional" movers ****ed-up the console I was going to install it on. I still have the system. Shoot me and email at [email protected] if you're interested. The reason I bought it was because a few people have told me how transparent it is and how much it can do. It's got compressors and gates as well as fader and mute functions. The system on my new console only does fader and mutes and groups, but it's already installed. I just need to get the right monitor...

Funny, I actually never hooked it up and sold it to Tony. The reason I didn't use it is because of the wiring. The VCA packs have one 1/4" TRS jack for the send and return while the Mackie uses a pair of jacks. If I had hooked it up I would've needed another patchbay and cabling so I didn't lose my inserts. While I don't really need them some of the freelancers do and having inserts around does come in handy at times for mults. So yeah, I bought the Mackie just because it was cheaper to hook up.

But, the times I've used Megamix in the past I've been very happy with it. Sounds great, easy to use and most freelancers over the age of 30 know how to use it which means it's respectable.
