It's not like I'm going to buy one anytime soon. Especially ever since
I found out I could only get the features that had me interested in
the platform with a very large and expensive 1640i -- I'd hoped the
feature would have been in the 820i as well -- then you could easily
use it as a DJ mixer, or for live-sound with at least a x4 return (x2
for mains, x2 for headphone). These days, independent of whether
you're DJing, you still need "DJ style headphone monitoring" for
computer music performance, so I am quite disappointed that mackie
decided that "Stereo playback from DAW, returned to control room or
into channel for integration into mix" is all you need. The 820i ought
to be an 8x8, with 4 ins, 4 send/returns, 2 busses, and 4 assignable
bus-output returns.... then it would be very interesting!
