JoeCo BlackBox can do 64 tracks MADI also. More to come. It's bit more expensive but you get a lot more in terms of monitoring, display, control..

i believe you can do direct outs with this unit but you have no gain controls on the recorder which is why inserts stated.

Anybody ever got ahold of one of these and try it out? I've recently joined a band that has a 16-track mixer with inserts and I'm considering getting one of these to record our shows. I have a US-1800, but I'm unsure about using inserts to tap out individual channels (partially inserted TRS?).  The band usually uses about 6 channels and I'd rather be able to track them individually than get them lumped as a single line out. I'd then add some additional mics for drums/guitar cabs whether using the Cymatic or the US-1800.
DPA4061 HEB/AT943 -> CA-UGLY -> R-09
Samson C02/Superlux S502/iSK Little Gem -> DR-680MKII
AKG CK63 -> AKG C460B -> DR-680MKII
AKG CK63 -> nBob actives -> Baby NBox -> R-09/DR2d

It's awesome for exactly what it's designed for, a basic multitrack recorder. You do record off a balanced direct out with either the half-click method, or an adapter. It won't power any mics, so anything needs to run through a board or preamp.
Audio: AT943 + SBD feeds
Antennas: Lots of those
Cables: Lots of those
Recorders: Cymatic Utrack24, Cymatic LR16, RME Multiface, (2) Tascam 680, (2) Tascam 2D, Zoom H6, Zoom H4n, and a graveyard of irivers/nomads/minidiscs.

Not all board support the half-click method on inserts. I bought some stereo to mono adapters from Radio Shack (RIP!) that worked on an Allen & Heath board but it does mean they stick out 2-3" more. Effectively the adapters bridge the send and return while tapping the circuit.

I've also gone into the serviceable type connectors and done the bridging trick. Just cut the ring wire, bend it over and solder it to the tip connector.

If something must be plugged into the insert and you want to tap it, a stereo y connector with the return wire clipped on one connector will work. I've made a few of those so I can run outboard compressors and still hook up to my HD24 on a board with no direct outs.
