I work for a blind guy's studio as his engineer. He just purchased a computer/software upgrade and we will be running MIX^3 on a G3 with lots of bells and whistles... We are currently using a Mackie 32/8 for inputs and a HUI for mixdown. We want some help deciding which direction to go from here. He wants to upgrade the board but is concerned about the realistic options. He's probably got about a $5-6K budget. We are trying to decide between the Soundcraft Ghost 32/LE (and keeping the HUI for mixdown) and the Control 24 and sending the HUI to the tracking room so we can stop running back and forth to hit the rec/stop button. I am haveing a hard time finding subjective stuff on either with the exception of obvious crap like... Soundcrraft stuff sux butt! and Control 24 is for wimps! Not very helpful. The blind guy happens to be a winp that likes to suck butt. just kidding Mark. ow! Oh this might help... he's a keyboard guy and has a large sampling rig... does anyone have any usefull information for us?
