While surfing the web on music shops, my eye felt on a Soundcraft Signature MTK22. A nice console, with limiters on the first 8 channels, sort of flipswitches between analoque inputs and usb inputs. The latter come from your DAW of choice, nice eq dual engine Lexicon FX's and so on. Of course 100mm faders, 4 subs and ready to rock for analog style mixing of smaller projects.
Needless to say I have GAS for this board as it is only round € 800,= right now.
I have a line on a MINT SM20 40 in 20 out Mixing console with 2 CPS 800 power supplies for 1000.00 is it worth the trip to get it? What would be the benefits for Live Sound? or should I just keep it for the Studio I am building?
Is anyone familiar with this board enough to help me?
I want to record 16 tracks out from the balanced XLR outs.
1-8 are "GROUP O/Ps" and 9-16 are "TAPE O/Ps", but they're paralleled.
I know how to route 8 mic inputs to groups 1-8. Is there a way to simultaneously route another 8 to the "TAPE O/Ps" 9-16? Or do they always carry what has been routed to the Groups 1-8?
Why is this that way? Why two sets of the same 8 outputs?
I have recently acquired a 24CH, 200B, with the two sweeping mid EQ's.(for $300 I got the mixer and a bunch of other gear). There is no hum in the power supply or the board, no scratchy pots or sliders, and everything seems to work well. I want to use it for recording, using a line off the INSERT jack to LINE IN on my converter.
I have 4 specific questions.
If I were to take it to my local equipment genius and ask him to upgrade 2 or 4 channels:
We have been using a Soundcraft K2/40 for a little over ten years. It is time for a change as the board is malfunctioning. We plan to stay analog with the next board because it fits our needs and the pricing is in our budget. We have been looking at the Soundcraft GB8/40, the Allen & Heath GL3800/40 and the Crest Audio HP8/40. Do you have any reviews or opinions on which board would be best, or is there another board you would recommend. We basically use the board for live church sound 3 or 4 times a week and about 3 drama presentations per year.
Sorry for this stupid question. I'm completely new at this. Can anybody tell me how to get the internal effects to go to AUX1?
I am using Sonar x1 which I love by the way! and my inputs and outputs are going through a noisy soundcraft spirit sx desk-have cleaned inside but ready for the tip I think!
I am really fed up with the crackling and having to keep moving sliders back and fore to get rid of the noise!
I am going from 4 outs into the delta and 4 ins to my spirit.OK after all that!
As explained, I have a nice clean Soundcraft Ghost 24 with Meter Bridge, and that old Transport Automation Section. It uses MMC Midi Machine Control to control any recorder so equipped. It also has automated channel mute, if I remember correctly.
It's been in a box in storage since 2000, so forgive any errors in memory.
But I want to sell it now (I live in Thailand) so I doubt if anyone would want to pay international shipping. But that's not why I'm here.
