I would like to request that the Studio1824c work as a standalone. Sometimes, I just want to play music and NOT have to turn on my Mac but I can't since the 1824c DOESN'T work without the Mac running. I find that ridiculous. The 1824c is AWESOME 'except' for this issue. It's not like I 'would have used' a mixer, I just have 6 inputs currently of which, one is my keyboard, another is a BOSS RC505 mk2 loop station and the third is a Roland MC707. The 1824c has everything I need for this use. I also have a StudioLive 32S console at a different location.
Please Please Please, allow the 1824c to work as a standalone!
