So I have been out of the game for a while, but before I really hung up the headphones, I bought a new (at the time) Ecler Nuo 3. I like the mixer and its set up, but I have realized that I am very dissapointed in the faders. They don't really give any volume till you get to 7 or so - and even then, it is like a 5 on any other mixer. So I end up having to run the faders at 10 always, and adjust with the gain controls.
I am a little old school - I played on a Urei or two in my day - so I got used to relying on the faders for volume and fading control.
There is an adjustment on the front of the mixer for Ch 1&3 faders, but it doesn't do much.
Any thoughts on another table top mixer - 2 or 3 channels - effects sends (don't really care about onboard effects) that has better fader feel? A more consistent volume curve?
The thing is I have only really used this mixer 10 or 12 times over the years I have had it - and I am a little frustrated now that I am trying to lay down a studio mix.
Any suggestions - would probably be more prone to get a used mixer - just for the money factor, but I don't want garbage.
