That is the one, and I agree, it sounded good. Just wasn't as warm as the Urei, OR THE BOZAK.
But I used to have to readjust my thinking and my touch to be able to sound and blend the way I do on a Bozak or Urei. and one particular Tuesday night, it was a holiday week, and we were jammed packed, I was mixing, and the pot wouldn't turn! It took me 5 seconds to realize I was on the Rane, not a Urei.
To each their own, but I just find, besides everything already said on rotary mixers, that rotating a knob -vs- up and down fader action just feels natural.
My .02 cents.
