The automixer seems to work for spoken word but not as well for mixing a band. plus the biggest is 12 input and we need a minumin of 16 if some people share settings on mics and use them when others are not or 20 if everyone has there own setting.
So how about the symetrix jupiter or something like it and then a basic mixing desk?
The Jupiter does have a parametric EQ with high pass and low pass on every input, in the speaker processing output module, as well as a 15 band graphic. The inputs and outputs have compression, limiting, etc.
If you need 16, you can move up to the next level in Symetrix.
As far as auto mixers not working for music, I would say that is incorrect. You set the mix parameters and the mixer follows it. It is ratio/preference based. You can open up the mixer screen and control it directly.
The mixer also has a matrix.
Do you really need 16 channels? Ae there things that could be sub mixed like drum, choir and piano mics?
I would put this system up against a human with little experience and no musical ear any day. We do it every week. It would make no sense to use Jupiter with a complete mixing console IMO.
