UDave had a PAAS and dumped it quickly after ....
This quote suggests that I had a negative impression of the PAAS - I only "dumped" it because of a design flaw that prevented it from doing what I needed it to do, which was an unconventional use of the KB ... something I'm often doing. The unit is awesome, and I SO wanted to keep it. It just couldn't fill my wish list. I'd love to have one in a studio environment.
The "flaw" is that signals fed into the LINE inputs do not get amplified in the PAAS if you use the Mic input. The only way you can hear outboard gear thru the speaker is if you use the L&R line ins, removing the Mic pre from the signal chain. That's a no-no for me.
