Jazzmouse acquires Digidesign C24 Mixing console

I don’t like change! There I’ve said it …. however sometimes one’s hand is forced by necessity. With most mixes now in the studio pushing fifty channels plus my poor old Mackie HUI (human user interface) was struggling to keep up and so it was time to move on.
The original Control 24, despite being the best seller in it’s price range, was dogged with PSU problems and I avoided it like the plague!
Having worked on both the ICON & VENUE boards I was very familiar with the ‘current’ Digidesign layout and workflow.
The new board is in and running as of today and I am very impressed. It works (almost) straight out of the box and other than some confusion over headphone cues (it’s much simpler than it looks…. just route to output 7&8) is now working with little disruption to my working month. I allowed five days but it has only taken three.
The C24 was supplied by Mediaspec and they ensured that all the usual compatibility issues were resolved even arranging for Digidelivery of software upgrades.
I’ll write an update in six months or so but for the time being … I like ….. I like very much!
