Hello Im starting to build a fairly tight budget studio and have very cool stuff in the way of DAW, Mics, Outboardgear and space. But what i need is a console that will allow for 16 tracks( for input into pro tools) and for more in case i want to mix off an alesis hdat Now, originally we were going for the behringermx9000( keep in mind this is to get the studio up and rolling) but my associates found this phonic console and i know what you are all thinking about phonic products, but i read some decent reviews on their surround console, and the difference between this one and the behringer is roughly 400$(depends on the dealer)which makes a nicer impact on our budget. Theres mostly post production that will be mixed and some bands. I like that this console brings and MS matrix on the first two channels and a couple other features for the price range. Heres the link so you all can check it out. http://www.phonic.com/partner/modules/product_explor/products_detail.php?product_id=41 I would like to know if anyones ever used it? used other phnic products? any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks A.
