Hi everyone.....I'm the new guy here and i would really appreciate any info that would help decide on what analog board i should get. I want that warm sound. The music i'm doing is hip hop/r&b so i use midi alot. Right now I'm using the digi 001 but i'm think about upgrading to a control 24 (my dads friend is giving one away for free) but also getting an analoge board such as a mackie 32/8 or the soundcraft ghost so i can do my recording into the analoge then dumpin it into protools to mix it down. This is just my pre production studio at home. I'm leaning more towards the ghost. My budget is about 5 to 8 grand. Another thing is im new to the game so i'm still learning so anyone out their.......please give me some good advice and let me know if i'm heading kinda in the right direction.
