I’m on the fence of buying/preordering a 301. I’m building a 208 HP rack, so space is limited, and the 301 seems to offer a lot in a relatively “small” package. I already invested in some Frap Tools CGM modular mixing modules, but this section is 36 HP already, so I’m thinking about if/how to get rid of it to make more space for other modules.
Because the 301 has lots of inputs and an internal mixer: Are some of you using it as a final mixing stage to mix internal and external (other module’s audio outs) signals? Does that make sense at all? I assume even if it’s possible, the main advantage of a hardware mixer – fast, intuitive mixing via hardware knobs – would be lost this way. Any opinions on that?
