Nice!! Almost identical look. I have your same X stand, and the EXACT same case on that stand. The exact one. Looks just like that. I am going to sell my case that contains a 1U line mixer, an audio interface (Peavey USB-P) and a Motif ES Rack. What is that monitor you have at the top left?
I have very very easily integrated C3 with my Montage 7! I have to say that the Montage has stricken a substantial amount of my stage gear. Your rig looks great! Actually, a small Kronos in the mix may be nice!
I Turned off local control on the Montage and chose to integrate the montage as a slave of itself through C3. This seems to be the best way for me. I have a Studiologic SL-88 passing through the montage with a 5pinDIN on port 3 (Merging 5pin DIN with the USB connection).
The Mixface is integrated with the SL-88. Only 2 USB ports for all audio and controllers. The Montage, MixFace and SL-88 are controllers controlling the Montage as a module AND audio interface, and C3 as usual. All coming out of the R/L of the Montage.
The Montage can still mix and morph with on board controls, knobs and sliders. This thing is a beast.
STILL, it can’t do what O2 does so well. Therefore, C3 remains an absolute necessity and O2 and Blue 3/IKmm Leslie are the only remaining VSTs that cannot be replaced by the Montage.
I can’t say that I am ready to take out NI Classic Keys (Mark/Wurli). Especially the 200A. That is the best sounding Wurli, hands down.
