Looking for the right multitrack mixer....

Discussion in 'Recording' started by ReasonOfHaste, Oct 28, 2009.

  1. I need a mixer that has around 16 channels that can plug into my computer for multi track recording... i have thought about just getting a simple 16 channel mixer with line outs then feed the outs to a presonus firepod... but i would rather just buy a mixer that could plug directly into my computer and every channel would show up on a different track... does anyone know of such a product? thanks for the help ;-)

    Analogue mixers with FireWire interface:

    Mackie Onyx 1640i
    Allen & Heath Zed-R16

    Low/medium cost digital mixers:

    Yamaha 01V96 with mLan expansion card
    Tascam DM-3200 with FireWire adaptor card

    I will refrain from making any specific recommendations; suffice it to say the Zed-R16 is excellent for the money.

    Not a fan of the Multimix. They are very buggy inre firmware and drivers. They are also hit and miss with construction quality. I'd stick with one of Boswell's recommendations.
