My only weak link left in my studio is my DDA-console which is not bad but not compareable to high-end consoles either. The rest of my gear is up there. I use my studio only for my own productions and I´ve made the recording chain a priority ´coz i mix in larger facilities. Now that I have nice outboard, converters and good monitoring the only thing I lack for mixing is a great sounding console. I think I found the ultimate solution for me. I need 16 to 24 channels, a couple of sends and a mixbus ready for rock&roll. It would consist of an API 7800 Master/summing module, two or three API 8200 line mixers and a rack of 12 Neve1073 eq-clones. I have a couple of 1073 eq´s already so that´s all I need. The 1073 clones fit in a 3 unit rack (check them out at http://www.vintagedesign.se under "customshop") so this would be an all discrete, very high quality 24-channel mixer with 12 eq´s in 6 units of rackspace ! It would obviously sound fantastic at an affordable price. What do you think, is it too good to be true ?
