What are the main differences between the LM26 and LM44. The main difference between the 2 models is physical analogue inputs and outputs as the LM26 has 2 inputs and 6 outputs compared to the LM44's 4 in and 4 out.  The LM26 is initially in contour mode, however, it can be changed to Mesa mode if need be and likewise the LM44 is set to Mesa but can be changed to contour if need be.
