So QSC is partering with Greg Mackie’s new venture to design digital consoles? Oh joy. I may be proved wrong but Pat Quilter just lost a couple respect points with me. Really, has Mr. Mackie designed anything that could be called anything positive (except possibly affordable) in the last twenty years? Sure, the old Tapco 8000 series stuff was ok. But it wasn’t anything to write home about. Since then Mackie’s designs could be called odd, impractical and occasionally flat out cheap. Of course opinions vary.
