surgical eq is a bit of a pain as you can only really do it with 2 knobs on each EQ - so you end up with loads of EQ units after each other.
But in the latest versions you can put them as inserts into the mix track for each device - which can be hidden easy.
Version 6 and above are a massive improvement on the versions before .
the new mixer is freaking awesome - its based on some real studio desk thingy - anyways its like 100 times better than the old one.
as above - now companies can make their own plugins - rack extensions - a bit like VST equivalents. that should open up loads more possibiltes for us poor reason users.
still want a graphical audio analyser built in. hopefully someone will make one as a rack extension.
