Expression vs Performer
Hello, this is my first post here.
I'm in the market for a good quality, 32-channel mixer, and I'm evaluating two Soundcraft boards: Expression 3 and Performer 3. My choice is restricted between these, mainly because I want an "analog-like" digital board, meaning that I do not like "display-based" consoles, I prefer the concept "one command = one function" like in the good old analog era.
Could anyone explain in detail all differences between Expression and Performer?
I know that Performer has 2 card slots and Expression has one, but what about sound quality? Is it the same in both or Performer is one step above? More differences?
Also, have these consoles any cooling fan or are they fanless?
Thank you very much for your help.
