I'm thinking of getting a DA7, it's been about 10 years since I had a couple of them. Can anyone fill me in again on what the difference between the MKI and the MKII are?

Whelp... guess it's up to me smile As far as I know Sean, the only diff between MKI and MKII was a few updated operational routines along with Hui implementation. Aside from that, they're identical I believe.

Thanks Brent! I remember seeing a list of what was new with the upgrade somewhere, but I don't see it. HUI would be nice, plus I kinda remember graphical updates to EQ and gate displays or something like that.

If anyone has a DA7 for sale, please let me know.

Wow, it's been sooooo long. Glad you're still out there Sean! Checking out your cool Mixing the Band site - awesome stuff.

I still have my DA7 but doing something new with it. I put it on a keyboard stand (this one to be exact: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008I5QTQI/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

and moved it close to my Mapex Drum kit. I made a snake using stretchy nylon wire tubing with 4 - 25 ft toslink cables and a 25 ft. word clock cable. Now I have 16 preamps close to my drum kit and can work up a pretty good tracking setup when I'm by myself. Sometimes I'll track with the DA7's compressors/gates/eqs if I'm feeling that.

Cheers and wishing you well old friend!
