HELP! I have a budget of about 2K for a mixer board. I need to put together a home recording studio and I only need the mixer board. I planning on buying a used Yamaha TF5. I'd love to be able to record and mix using the mixer capabilities. Ideas? advice?
Thanks for helping audiokid! I checked the link you gave me and these mixers look great but maybe out of my budget. I'll keep checking. Thanks again!
You are welcome! Let us know what you decide on or any other questions you may have.
Before you make a solid choice, check out StudioLive software called Capture. Makes recording super easy. Might be perfect for you.
Yamaha is always a solid choice. Are you only looking for a "controller" no preamps?
How many channels do you need?
For digital the behringer x32 is a great option. 32 channel conversion and hui control. For on the cheap a Mackie D8B (digital 8 bus) is a great console.
On analog the soundcraft ghost is a standard low cost option. Also tascam makes some nice old boards with transformer coupled inputs. They also make a full size console with full analog eq on every channel and motorized faders. I forget the model but it sounds good, and my buddy got one for 500$.
Presonus digital mixer and Allen &Heath analog Zed are also good ;)
