    BRUCE RICHARDSON - MIXER MIXER

    Hi Bruce

    Love your advice. although everyone elses is very welcome.

    I do not do too much live recording and would like a new Mixer for Christmas. I have a Wamirack 192(seperate system)

    I also have to mention that I have the Roland SRv 3030 outboard reverb rack unit.

    Anyone recommend a mixer that would give me good results with the above gear I mentioned?

    The Behringers Eurodesks look promising.(anyone used this series? I am looking at the 16 channel with 4 busses.

    Bruce anyone?

    Go analog.

    Hey Soundsmith, thanks for the ideas any spesific models you can think of?, especially for sampling? So that I can check them out?

    Thanks

    Go analog. You state that don\'t do much live recording, so the additional learning curve is just added frustration. Mackie makes a nice line of reasonable analog boards, as do companies like Allen Heath, Soundcraft, even Tascam. But IMHO, Behringer is not the quality you want for creating samples. Not a BAD board, but they tend to add bells and whistles at the expense of signal to noise ratio. For your needs, it seems like a relatively straight-wire board (less features, better sound) will do nicely.

    Re: BRUCE RICHARDSON - MIXER MIXER

    I concur with Ernstinen on the \"older Soundcraft\" versus a new cheap Mackie. However, I would like to qualify some opinions about mixers in general. If you are only using the mixing console as a means to monitor a variety of sources, I think a Mackie or Behringer will do fine. I\'m using a tiny little MidiMan sub-mixer to monitor my sources.

    The critical path for me is input and tracking. I\'ll use the best pre-amps and convertors I can con, rent, or borrow. Once my tracks are captured, I\'ll be in the digital domain all the way to the final mix stage so as long as I can get a transparent and acceptable signal-to-noise monitoring situation, I\'m happy.

    See, the final mixes don\'t ever go through the console anyway as it is only used as a relative reference for my old school analog ears. They go to my mastering engineer in digital format straight from the two-mix bus out of Vegas.

    After one or two mastering spankings you\'ll have a whole new understanding of how to proceed with your next gig. You might even find that you need a better monitoring system in order to achieve a
    better final mix.

    That\'s my opinion anyway. For what it\'s worth.

    Ok Guys

    Thanks for the advice.

    So if I am going to choose the Analog mixer, I am looking at the following.

    Please comment, or if you have experience with these boards or which will serve me well?

    What mixer would you recommend? (Remember I can use my 4 mic inputs if I wanted to record with a Mic) Mixing will be more digital(samples, Midi Sound Modules. etc)

    Behringer MX2004A

    Soundcraft Spirit SX

    (
    If someone could look at the specs on the above mixers and look at its strengths and weaknesses keeping my needs in mind I might just buy you one too!!(only kidding)

    I would be forever gratefull!!

    Please help me decide between these.
