    whats your thoughts on this?
    spose smoother volume control and not chance of accidently playing wrong channel

    May as well have added in another knob for the crossfader as well, far too complicated

    yeah, channel faders are great cause you can use multiple with one hand, could see it being a nightmare using all 4 channels with rotary volume controls

    Crossfader assignments would sort that out.

    Yeah this would be awesome for 2 decks, or people with 3 hands

    Ridiculous idea in my opinion. Failt to see the advantage whatsoever.

    But each to their own.

    I would say you could control the channel levels better for a smother transition.

    I know of heads who prefer rotary mixers. I'm not sure why Allen & Heath are doing it now as i there isn't much inherently better about them. Think it was something about the build quality of a few classic rotary mixers that people really liked.

    Personally, not one for me.. Although probably perfect for the house and trance monkeys!

    Yeh... i had the misfortune of being stuck with one of these at a rave..... confused the fukin hell out of me at first.... awkward to use... but if your just doing standard 2 deck mixing it does feel a bit more detailed in volume levels... I hardly ever use the crossfader so it did feel a bit more 'fun' to play with for a bit...

    but I dont really get the advantage of it to be honest.....
