A digital mixer for live use certainly suits some engineers better than others.
I used the Promix 01 live a lot, and it was great, even with the (by todays standards)
crappy display/ interface. Scene memories are brilliant if you're doing lots of bands on
one show. It's really neat and easy to manage when you don't have to set up and/ or
trouble shoot multiple channels worth of outboard gates and comps. It's a much tidier
setup when they are "virtual", which suited me! Note that it took me maybe 2 small gigs
before I felt OK about using it for bigger events.
Kraftwerk always use the
02R96v2 for their gigs, even when there's a big ol' analogue mixer at the venue.
