Okay, here's the deal. Right now, I am using my Roland VS-2480 as a mixer for my band. I also record our shows and practice sessions on it. I am getting worried that it will crap out just when I need it the most and also to get more effects, they cost a bunch of money (I only have the one effects board installed). The only problem I have had with it is the HD went bad and replaced it with a rebuilt one of the same size from Roland. Wasn't too bad but still..... So, I have been looking around at boards to possibly replace the Roland with and so far, I am liking the 16.4.2 Presonus (would rather have the 24.4.2 but that will take a bit more convincing). So, those on here that have experience with the Presonus line, what do you think of them? How really good is the EQ/FAT section? How good is the Studio 1 software that comes with it? Anything I should look out for if I got one? I have watched You Tube videos of a bunch of different mixers and I am wanting to stay with something that is compatible with a lot of different DAW programs. Thanks for any information....
