My band does a lot of weddings so the ducking feature is nice for announcements. That said, I found it an odd addition that they spent a lot of time on for such a specific thing that will really only get used to duck announcements. With the limited amount of adjustments and practical application for live mixing (ducking bass on kick hits for hip-hop or dance for example), I just don’t get it.

I would much rather of seen additional effects and processing – like a multi-band compressor or high pass filters on the aux sends, which is a curious omission. Or how about a variable slope on the HPFs.
