Ill agree to some extent, but, Rane sells alot of 2016,s.
What I hear over here, is that DJ,s want the Rane, they just dont want the Urei with its no frills, no per channel EQ, no gain trims per input, etc!
Justin, yes, recreating the old components, the old metals, the old sound, can be a trying experience. One that doesnt always work out, either.
I would like to see a mixer engineered using todays premium parts that focused on sounding good, not sounding like yesterdays electronics, but, I dont think there really is a market to support what would be a really expensive unit.
