HI I'm new to this so bear with me! I'm considering replacing our analogue Beheringer 24 ch mixer with a M32. We have a DBX260pa in the system now. Should I leave it in or can the M32 do all the work of the DBX?. We like the DBX feedback control. Or we could move it & the analogue mixer to our youth hall. I've been studying your online lessons vs. the Allen & Heath digital. I'm an experienced FOH engineer (over 60 years) but have mostly volunteer help, I have little experience with digital but this one seems like it would be a smooth transition for me & my crew. Thanks for any input!

Hey Vernon - I'm a more recent convert (unlike Paul our resident guru!) who 3 months ago moved from an A&H GL2400 using a dbx Driverack to the M32 using London Sound BSS. If it were me, I'd experiment to see if you could take the dbx out of the signal path. The M32 has some fairly advanced crossover and filtering - I've even thought of removing our BSS box but it was installed by our integrator and I've just not had time. Funny you mention your youth - our students now own our old A&H and the dbx.
If you choose to leave it in, you may want to run the dbx analyzer again as the M32 undoubtedly has a different sound profile than your current desk. The M32 does not have automated feedback control like the dbx, but you could certainly set up the eq and dynamics to match.
