I'm in a pinch. I'm reaching out to you strangers on the internet for help with my research project. Situation: a church has consulted you on the purchase of a new console for their main room. This church uses a medium sized performance group during their services. The console will be required to provide sound for the main room as well as several on stage monitor systems as well as live stereo recording. You have been asked to provide the musical director 2 options. One of which would be a console that provides the basic requirements and should be a lower cost. The other would allow for expansion and possible multi-track recording in the future. Other requirements as below. 1. at least 24 mic. inputs and up to 32 2. stereo mix outputs for PA and stereo recording 3. 2 or 3 pre-fader aux's for monitors system 4. 2 post fader effects sends 5. adequate EQ. 6. +4 dBv operational level 7. the multi-trk option needs to have a combination of bus and direct outputs to record drums, bass, piano, 2 guitars, brass section (2 trumpets, 2 trombones) and at least 4 solos vocals and stereo chorus micing. (i think that would add up to 24) 8. Price cap at $25,000 I'm not asking for you to do my project for me, just please aid me in my search for consoles. every site I've been to either doesn't include enough information, or just doesn't meet all requirements.
