I'm planning to upgrade a small Adat-Mackie-Studio. (I'm not the owner, I only use the rooms. I don't want to buy Adats and 8bus-Mackie, but I can use it.) I need some opinions about te following preamps: TWO CHANNEL: Symetricx 302 Great River (ok, ok, not really...it's good I can read...) Minprint An/DI (has digital out!) dbx 386 (with digital interface!) WITH EQ/CHANNELSTRIP: Mindprint EnVoice (optional dig modul) Focusrite Voicemaster CHEAPER Tascam MA-8 (compared to the mackie) Tascam MX-4 My aim is to eliminate the need of the too big mackie (and I have to rent it...). I plan to buy an RME ADI-8 (pro or ds). and together with the S/PDIF and analog inputs I have 12 channels where preamps can pluged in.... (20 with an additional ADAT...) Opinions?
