I can just hear Ricardo Montalban say that, just like he said "rich, Corinthian leather" in the Chrysler Cordoba commercial!

Believe it, that's 32 Bit floating grain Mahogany tonewood.

Hi,
I like the way the mixer looks. A may be biased, as you will see from the picture of my 8 channel.

The mixer was a German kit I built in 1981. I have since modified and upgraded the ICs. It has a discrete front-end mic pre. I use it along with my 18i20. Example; when I record drums, I have mic's on bass drum, snare, toms(3), hihat, going into the 18i20, and a stereo overhead pair going into the 8 channel mixer. There I have outboard compressors inserted.
I also use this mixer for my Rhodes, one other synths.
It doesn't have 32bit floating wood, just plain analog wood.

Now looking from this angle makes me wonder how I would reach all those controls. :?: Same with other console pics I've seen.

Morning,

I thought of this thread when I downloaded some of the tesselode plugins this morning like Cocoa Delay:

https://tesselode.itch.io/cocoa-delay

If that's the interface we're talking about moving toward, it looks a bit unpolished to me.

Yeah, apparently this does seem to be a trend. It appears 1)some people/organizations have a use for it, and 2)some people like it.
These are simple, unrefined UI s. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, a sort of devolution in UI s. Hopefully we don't go there unless absolutely necessary.
