    Thanks again to all. My decision is done, I will buy the GS-R24M!

    Now I will focus on choosing the best deal, but will not be able to finalize it before mid March, but at least the choice is made!

    All the best!

    Thanks Andreas.

    I am using both VSTis and analog synths, so hybrid. For recording, I am not against having a little color, although it is not that important. For the mix, I am also hybrid, using hardware (lexicon reverb, analog effects chained in send-return) and plugins like UAD. Same for mastering, using hardware racks but also plugins.

    Maybe the balance will be more about the workflow itself, where on an digital desk you are stuck with only one channel at a time, but you will answer that you dont tweak five channels at the same time anyway 🙂

    I am still wondering what is the sound of standard mackie vs digital qu series …

    Thanks Bob, that would be the best way to do it, to have the two desks in my studio for a while.

    Thanks Andreas, totally agree that it is a total different story … I was just wondering if somebody else went down that path, switching from analog to digital considering sound quality.

    I will try to see if I can borrow a QU series from a local shop and already do a comparison with the mackie …

    The only thing I dont like with the mackie is that when it is full of channels, the mix tends to become harsh … I tried a GS3000 for a week and found that the same mix sounded totally different, so that is why I was thinking of the GS-R24M (as the GS3000 workflow was not good for me ==> two set of faders per channel).

    I am wondering if I am in a “resistance to change” phase or just worried about sound quality 🙂 I will be 45 in a few months and maybe I become “rigid” 🙂 lol

    Anyway, thanks all for your answers!

    Thanks dhak for your precise answer.

    You use both desks? so you may be maybe answer my question about sound quality? I read on another thread here that when recording via a computer the very low end (below 80Hz) is filtered (reduced). I will use that desk only for studio use (no move) and for me sound quality is the first factor, so when I read things like this 80Hz filtering, I dont think it is the way to go full digital for me.
    I am definitely an OTB passionate with hardware lexicon reverbs, spl preamps and so on (although I am also crazy about uad audio plugins 🙂 … so I can not say I come with nothing … If I had no hardware, the QU series will be perfect, that’s true …

    Could you please fill the ….. ? I really need your position compared to the Mackie

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    Huge thanks for your answer!

    As I plan to use that desk only for studio use and with a mac pro, the recording feature is very important. This is a no go for me it that kind of filter is applied, especially in electronic music where you need huge bass.

    Looks like I will go to the GS-R24M (I know it is a total different approach, but sound quality is the very first factor for me).

    Hi Tofke78

    I am interested by your point about sound quality.

    I was about to buy a A&H GS-R24M but the QU series seems very interesting, especially when looking at the price.

    So according to your ears, maybe I should stay with the GS-R24M?

    Thanks for your answer
