R: Too many loopers, not enough auxes...

I am working with an Allen & Heat Gl2 ( i think the update model has 
name). It has 12 channels and 6 auxes, all configurable pre-post.
I enter with my clean preamplified signal that goes in channel 1.
The 6 auxes are divided in 3 stereo pairs, so i can drive 3 stereo fx. 
outputs come in from the channel strips, so they can be processed going 
in any aux send again.
There are also the four mono groups sends that I have been using to feed 
loopers, whose outputs once again come in through the channel strips.
It is an easy-to-see and control configuraton.
I am waiting for the release of the Event EZ1, a digital mixer that (on
paper) should allow any configuration using its several ins/outs.
It also switch itself into a midi controller: in less words this machine
should do what a Switchblade and a Peavey 1600x can do together. (I still
have to touch and check one, so these thoughts could be easily found
I also have a Rocktron Rack Interface that I use no more, should it 
anyone, mail me.
all my best
