Yeah, just one take on the microcosm, but definitely watch the videos. Hopefully, there's more up than when I got mine. At the time I got mine, it was all ambient performances and I'm sorry for who I offend here, but I don't think those types are the best for demonstrating what a gadget actually does.

The reverb is insanely lush! It's not an everyday reverb for me, but it's seriously one of the best I've heard like that.

If I like the sound I may get a couple more for poly chaining duties

Cool beans... I had to look up the PFL expander, not sure I really get the use case, but expanders are
cool and handy, so you might as well buy them, I always say 8)

or even just how we record, but take morphagene or now nebulae, both can contain quite a few samples, but who can remember them all? send them to a channel here, and you know which sample you have before you turn it up.

i did a lot of live sound when i was able too and some studio work, using mixers is a sort of second nature thing :hihi:

and, they were out of stock of the mixer without anyway :lol:

Does anyone have input on DPO vs Instruo Cs-L vs something different?

I've been watching videos and the big question I have is if either of these two is overkill, or does building around one of them make sense.

(I'm not buying soon, but just researching still).

Not to mention a quick on/off switch should anything get too loud, which is great for resonant filters. I'll be honest, I'd have to get used to that as a workflow (monitoring pre-mixer) but I love the on/off switches.
