Actually you get fader units for Studer with P&G, but also with Alps
faders. Such a module usually costs more than a complete home recording
mixer. Small semi-pro studios more often use something like a Soundcraft
Delta with Alps faders. The long and the short of it, more people, in
particular the amateurs and semi-pros tend to use gear with Alps faders.
P+G are three times more expensive than Alps. Alps audio taper is very
good. The only bad Alps faders I ever used (and still use) are seemingly
substandard goods used by a Behringer mixer, this mixer cost around the
price some Studer fader units do cost, but even those bad Alps faders
just feel not good when fading, the Audio taper is ok. IOW regarding to
the taper it doesn't matter if you're using P&G or Alps. All those
faders use a similar kind of log.
