We also have, in effect, permanent mics and mic positions.

I like to have the APware system running if possible so that:

(a)	I can mute or unmute mics as people join or leave the
	meeting; in particular I have a gooseneck mic on the
	operator's desk which is used mostly during testing
	and then muted;

(b)	If I need to change anything (levels, muting, even gating
	if things get too noisy) I want to be able to do that in
	APware so that the echo canceller knows about it, rather than
	in RAT where it won't and echoes could result.  This is
	especially useful if I find that a particular (local) speaker is
	quieter or louder than the others - I can adjust his/her
	mic without affecting the others.

Useful to hear about your experience with dual mobos - thanks.
