1 - DCA Mute does not mute pre-fade aux sends. This is different behavior from every other digital board I've used, can it be changed so DCA mute does mute sends? I know on digico you can do pre-mute sends to keep sends hot, otherwise they mute with DCA or channel mute.
2 - Can X32 Rack be used as an S16? In other words, buying an s16 and x32 core would be $1900, X32 rack at $1500 is a better deal. I already have an X32, but want an iPad mixerless rack solution as well. Would be nice to use the X32 Rack with the X32.
1- I get the DCA logic, but why emulate the analog way, when the behavior of digital desks can be much more flexible. It does make sense that pressing mute on a DCA should be equivalent of pressing mute on each of the DCAd channels. Or at least have the option.
2- Why can't the io be shared with x32 rack? I thought flexible easy io was the point of aes50.
