I am lost and confused. I have a soundcraft spirit folio sx 20 mixingboard. But I want to go all rack, I used this board only for preamps. So I was satisfied with the quality of the preamps. What would you recomend for a 8 chanel preamp strip to record drums. I will get a nicer preamp for vocals and guitars, but i always use only one input for guitar 2 max... So i dont need something expensive. I was thinking m-audio octane but it will not leave any money for a 8 more cables that i will need. stands etc. So something around $300 for 8 channels, if there is nothing usable than i will get octane ,i think.
