I'm looking for a small mixer (8 or so channels) for high-end classical remote recording. Minnimal EQ, few if any sends, and easy to carry around. Any suggestions would be great.
The very smallest one would probably be the ATI 8MX2. 8 mic pres with panning, phantom, polarity reverse, and limiting on each channel, with both individual outputs and a stereo bus. You can also solo each channel, and has some basic metering.
All in one rack space, for around 2 grand. I happen to own one and I'm in your area, if you want to PM me.
