    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 ?

    Oh yes, that´s the thing. Add eq´s and I´m ready to go. Too bad it´s in the States, I would not sleep well after paying for it until it arrives here three weeks later...

    Hey guys, question for ya. I'm kinda new to how the API stuff can be mixed and matched and all. I was wondering, with the 8200 can that be used as a mic amp or would you need something like the 3124+ as well? I've just been wanting to get some API pre's on the way into the box and wasn't shure if the 8200 or 3124+ would be better thankx.

    The 8200 is a line mixer. no mic pre's. The 3124+ is a 4 ch mic pre. you can get it with or without a mix bus.

    so in your set up or the one on ebay what serves as the mic amps. Do you have other outboard mic pre's you would be using? Sorry for the questions just find it interesting and don't know that much about it. Thanks alot.

    Yep, the micpres are other outboard pres. the Api 8200/7800 is a line-level mixer only.
