I was actually being a little sarcastic. I was not trying to be too obvious.This is the first time in the history of the internet that anyone ever accused @Gasp100 of having restraint when it comes to gear acquisitions!
I used the III with in-ear-monitors for the first time Sunday. I definitely noticed the increased clarity and responsiveness. Overall, it just seemed to sit in the mix better without stepping on other instruments.
It was also the first run with the FC-6 and I struggled with that a bit. I don't quite have the layouts configured the way I want yet. I definitely miss the extra switches I had available on the AX8, but the FC-12 seemed too big when I was considering which one to order. The FC-6 is going to work out once I get use to a couple extra button clicks, but I still may end up switching to the FC-12 down the road.
I did not enjoy having the extra rack compared to the AX8...
