Why not buy from GIK EU? They are based in Poland.

Yes! Just discovered it. Order on its way :)

hello again all!!!

i m 1 week post x32 delivery and i have to say that i m very delighted!!!!

i played with it for a couple of days and it does what i wanted and then some :)

for example
as for now it s setup with inputs 1-16 are analog ins
and 17-32 are computer returns like softs synths direct outs!!!

so ( ok , i know it s maybe not revolutionary) it s exactly how i hoped it to be...
ok not really (not at all... :D :D :D ) an analog way of working , but close enough !!!

and a MEGA flexible routing system to boot.

so i can play the hardware synths via MIDI, record the audio in the pc,
and finally , if i want, have all 32 tracks (16 analog recorded ones and 16 soft synths, or 32 audio tracks, or any combination of audio and soft synths ) played thru usb and mix it via the desk!!!

i very much like the flexibility of the scribble strip system , the screens are sharp and readable

one drawback though, even if you can choose the scribble strip colour, it changes with the angle of view!
Not so much of a bother since you still can read it!

all in all

:thumbup: Excellent, thanks for posting back. I've had my X32 Compact for quite a few years now and I'm still learning but it's done a bit of everything from full on live shows to being the centre of my little project studio.
