...but I'm dreaming of a new mixing console. Currently, I have a funky hybrid of a ProMix01 with an old Fostex 1/4" 8track R2R sync'ed up with a blackface ADAT. Then I have a bunch of MIDI gear (as many as 24 channels, though never at once) sync'ed up as well. I record a lot of one-track at a time, using a Neumann U89 through a Demeter pre-amp, relying infrequently on console for tracking. Now I am Jonesing for a console (mostly for mixdown) that can handle 16 recorded tracks and perhaps 16 of MIDI'ed instruments. I'd like to spend $2000 or less, so I'm looking at used gear. Here's what I'm thinking: Yammy 02R - nice ADAT interface, plenty of channels, automation, familiarity with Yammy digital Soundcraft Ghost - hard time finding 32 channels for $2K used, but I like what I've heard about this board. I'm reluctant to go Mackie 8 bus, as I'm not convinced it is a sufficient upgrade in sound quality from my current setup. Whaddy'all think?
