R72 is OK but if you are mixing bands with more than 6 monitor mixes it can be a bit painful. Also jumping between all the banks seems to take forever when things start to go wrong. If I’m working a live band I’ll often end up building a layer with a mix of DCA’s and vocal inputs to I can try to run the show on one layer. Lazy but it works for me!

The R72 is nice and small though so it tends to go with me if I think I’ll be running a show off editor as its nice to have a physical fader to pull when it all goes wrong. Great for corporate & AV style jobs for the same reasons.

Don’t try doing a 16 way monitor mix on it though!

Just remember kids no matter how good your mixing is you can’t polish a turd…
