It does look interesting, although not exactly cheap compared to the
competition from Yamaha. Looking at the features, it seems to have a
very useful combination of inputs, busses, and monitoring facilities
that should work well for live or studio use where one would want to
record a full band or small orchestra playing at once.
For studio production using sequencers or track-by-track recording, it
clearly faces strong competition from in-the-box mixing and just using
an analog mixer for monitoring. It also lacks digital connectivity to
hook up studio processors (no AES/EBU or ADAT) or integrate it into a
larger rig (no wordclock?). For me personally, 16 inputs would not be
enough, as a major motivation for having a tradtional mixer is to avoid
the need to patch and having all my gear immediately available.
