I have an audio visual rental company and I am also an old sax player. That said I want to make a nice little studio with my new mac 3ghz dual proc machine. I just don't know what controller ( I like having sliders but dont need to ) Software as well (we have it set up right now with 2 42" lcd screens and final cut pro studio). I have all the mics and large analog mixers but I don't know if I buy a mackie controller, mackie mixer onyx, or what and I know you guys know your stuff. I am buying this real quick as well on a new equipment order so thanks in advance for any advice. please feel free to let me know if I am way off on what I need and throw out your suggestions.
