I am using a Tascam DM-24 Mixer with 3 GS\'s and TDIF Midiman audio cards. Outboard Mac with Altiverb plus a Lex PCM 91. I am running GOS,DDBE,DDW,PMI,London Perc.SI etc. through this setup. The music is large Orchestral with a lot of Ethnic instruments. Needless to say it is one mixing nightmare or dream depending on your POV.
My opinion of this setup is that while it is quiet it does not stir my Soul sonically speaking. I think it sounds a little harsh in fact and the EQ and automation are not easy to use.
I am wondering if anyone has tried mixing several GS systems on a large Neve or Trident console? How would you describe the difference in Sound Quality using a Pro Board over an inexpensive Digital Mixer?
Has anyone tried mixing GS through a Tube mixer? I am under the impression that an analog board is going to \'breathe\' a little more and not sound as \'strident\' as a Tascam or Mackie type board.
Also there is the subject of \'rendering\' the tracks to Hard Drive rather than live Midi, as long as you have enough voices why bother with this time consuming process? Or areall those Waves Plug Ins impossible to live without?
Any thoughts on this subject? Thanks in advance!
