1 Proteus 2 months ago 12 input channels would be ideal, as I'm looking for the smallest footprint that supports the high aux count.At least four of the auxes have to capable of pre-fader operation; bonus if all 6 are switchable.Other features might matter, but only if the aux capability is there.I've looked at current and older offerings from Mackie, Soundcraft, Allen & Heath, Rane.The old Mackie SR series has an ideal base configuration: 2 pre-fade auxes, 2 switchable pre/post, and 2 post only. All the other features are fine for my purpose. But the smallest channel count I can find with the 6 auxes is 24. (I already have the 1604VLZ, which is compact enough - though even smaller would be better - but only 2 of the auxes are pre-fade, and the knobs for 3/4 do double-duty with a switch for 5/6, making it a little inconvenient.)I'm not averse to doing it all digitally, with or without a device and app; I just don't know that market.Ideas?
