I have mixed regularly on an i-live and just purchased a GLD. They give me a similar sound. The GLD has faster processing or maybe it just takes less time to send a command locally than down the core. The channel drag & drop on the GLD is fantastic. It is such a simple console and I am very happy with it. I also have a couple of LS9’s as well and they still have their place. The Yamaha ipad control is second to none.
Does the GLD sound as good as my Digidesign Venue board…no. But it was 1/4 the price and I can lift the GLD myself, whereas the venue takes a few guys to lift correctly.

I am looking forward to a Mixwizard version of the GLD as a small rack mounted corporate board. That will kill in the market.
