    Hi Guys,

    I just recently purchased a HD24 from alesis to save me lugging my racks of pro tools everywhere for on location recordings. Its main application is live concert recording and we are running a 3 way Active split system so i cannot route back into any of the other desks (well not easily). Are there any products on the market that are rackmountable and are just a simple 24 IN and have a mute and solo function and just dump out to a set of phones or even left right out so i can go to a headphone amp/splitter.

    Any ideas let me know guys and if its not possible to do with without another desk so be it. I'm just stumped!

    I think it is Crest Audio that makes a rackmountable 24 channel mixer. I could be wrong..it might be 16 channels.

    A long time ago, I purchased a Roland 24 input, 6 effects sends, 2 pair output, rackmount keyboard mixer. It was the same size as my TASCAM DA88's and worked well as a monitor mixer. It had plenty of headphone output, with dual stereo buses. But there are other rackmount line level mixers where you can get 8 into a 1U rackmount, and have the ability to gang multiple units to a single stereo output. It would take up no more than 3U rack space, although you might be hard-pressed to find any kind of solo feature? For that, you might need to use a pre-fader effect send for solo monitor?

    Simple problems require Simple Minds (as engineered by Bob Clearmountain)!

    Thanks for the replies guys. I know behringer make a 1U mixer but what other brands/models are out there?! Ideally something like the Roland mixer would be cool too but i think they could be rare as these days. But yeh any other company ideas with the 1U ideas?
