I just received my 16R, getting everything set up for it’s big debut tonight and it does look like we are limited to only 2FX mixes even though there 4 are listed in UC Surface if used with an RM unit, which I have as well.
So far I see some pluses (size) and minuses (loss of SMAART & Spectograph) which is big for large shows).
I also use Studio One Pro for mixing so I like the additional choices in the FAT channel but for me that’s not a Big Games Changer ✌️
I’m still happy with the purchase for the original reasons of wanting a smaller back up for small clubs where 16 inputs are just enough for our 5 piece band.
I am able to easily pack everything into a 4 Unit Rack & stay under 40 lbs
