    anybody got a midas, venice board? I was curious if they are more of a live board? I am looking for a board that will be good at mostly recording sessions.
    Thanks

    Used a friend's 320 for a couple of live shows awhile back. They're fantastic sounding boards and the pre's would likely be great for recording but the board is primarily designed for live use.

    The Venice is a good board but lacks the tape returns that a dedicated recording mixer would have ...

    But if you only need 16 returns (usually plenty for any DAW rig), with the 32 channel Venice you could use 16 channels for inputs and 16 for monitors. I recommend the Venice highly for a small recording studio .. as there are not really any decent recording consoles available for less than $10,000+, unless you find something used and huge that will be a maintenance pig.

    great advice
    I really need something that has direct outs and is very practicle for live recording and multi tracking. Looking at getting a new A&H mix wiz3 or the 1640 ONYX. Because they are rack mountable. But would a midas work and have all i will need for both ideas?

    The Mackie or the AH are not in the same league as the Midas boards .. there's a world of difference in the quality. All of them offer direct sends. The Venice is much better sounding console with more features like a better eq section, better pre amps, more aux sends, albeit at a hefty difference in price.

    If you can afford a Venice, that's what I would recommend.

    I can't decide between a Venice 320 or Yamaha 02R96v2 for my project studio. Any suggestions?
