Your general opinion of this product.
I had the 24.4 since they first came out. I take very good care of my equipment and this mixer still runs strong with no problems. If the pots start to get scratchy (happened once after 15 years), just turn them back and forth fast until the scratchiness stops. That's all I ever had to do. Considering the venues I played with this mixer, that's quite a track record. I did rainy days, hot and humid and everything in between. The best thing is there's plenty of mic inputs that cover all venues. I did sound for an orchestra once and had plenty in inputs for the job with 20 mic ins. I did a quire and it was fantastic. I used a tiny bit of off board reverb for dimension and wow!! I ran a video camera (hi def) and took a line out to the camera (main left and right, ran the house mix mono out). The stereo reverb was absolutely beautiful. I did a kind of cheat mix, mixed somewhat for the video but still kept a good stage mix. The six aux sends are PLENTY!! Buy one!! It's great!!
