I got into the Digital mixer world with a QSC Touchmix 16...I love it!!! Man, having the ability to do things remotely makes all the difference and of course all the effects that are built in make it very versatile. Not familiar with the Midas but if it's like the QSC, it's quite user friendly.

Switched into the digital realm several years back. The Presonus mixers had been out for a while and our (at the time) drummer/sound guy had been talking up the new Behringer X32. I was really reluctant about the brand but after reading everything I could I decided to give in. As luck would have it we had to move on from that particular drummer and his extensive knowledge of digital mixing. That left it to me to take over. Up until that point I only had basic PA and mixing knowledge. I could hook everything up and make it work but would not consider myself proficient on anything else.
I read everything I could on the X32. Behringer forums, other live sound forums, YouTube. I found the best resource for me were the Drew Brashler videos on YouTube. There happened to be one where he went through setting up a whole scene with built-in crossovers for the subs. That helped immensely. From there I found myself setting up the layout the way that worked best for me, and also assigning effects and setting the busses how I wanted. There are several really good videos out there.
Bottom line, I'm a fairly technical guy but was a bit overwhelmed with digital mixing. I got through it ok and continue to learn. If I can do it, anyone can. Just takes patience and perseverance. It also helps if you're under the gun because you just happen to be stuck with it.
It a a beautiful piece, really. I bought it used, in mint condition, from a friend that is “in the business.” The price was resonable. So reasonable that I hope the long-term quality of the mixer is acceptable. This piece of gear includes so many accurate replications of rack gear, it’s crazy.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
