Rane MP-2016 - What I wish they would make

I love my Rane MP-2016, but there are a couple things I really wish Rane would do to update it.

- Make the face-plate anodized instead of painted. The current paint just wears off too easily.

- Rip out the crossfader. Perhaps make a 1U crossfader unit that connects similarly as the XP-2016.

- In place of the crossfader, put in controls for the effect/send return to be assignable to any channel, or the master, with a wet/dry knob. Maybe even double the controls and put a second effects send/return. If you don't have the XP-2016, make the effects loop on the mixer piece just 100% wet on the master as it is now.

- Perhaps add in a sound card with a select-able input on the matrix with Serato (and even Traktor) certification.

That would make one heck of an install mixer. If they even offered a fader (blech) version, they'd reach more of the market.

As old as the current design is, having 4 switchable line/phono inputs, 5 auxilary matrixed line inputs, and 6 channels to choose from makes the mixer still a great choice in todays digital world.

Someone must know people at Rane
