Make a 1U panel with xlr's and hard wire it. Get yourself a tablet and a router. No more running up to the rack to make a change. Wifi has changed the world. I use the venue 360 that way and will never go back. Also run my lights and my ui16 wifi too!
I want to be able to access everything on the unit from the front panel....you can't do that with that unit. You are forced to use the computer....just extra to set up for the one out of 10 shows that I might need it. I can certainly build rack panels (I've lost count on how many I've built for bands), but hot-swapping in the heat of battle when you need direct access because a cable broke from the unit to the panel just isn't possible in a case like that.
There's a reason that they don't sell that unit in the touring world.....it's really a zone controller for installations.
I occasionally mix on my iPad.....but, only when having the board out front is impossible. Board is faster and less tedious than a tablet for me.
Hey, I'm old and old-school (but I do embrace digital processing and boards).
