    I'm thinking of building up a studio. As a assistent in a digital one(yamaha 02r, alesis hd24...) I learned a lot, but now I have a problem :)

    I need a console(mixer) to monitor(to mix) my recordings, to track them...
    now 1. option: a massive console with class a preamps, eqs...
    2. option cheaper consoles with focusrite octopre preamps for drums, avalon m5 for microphones, cheaper dbx 376('cause of the tube)...

    What to choose, 1. or 2. option and what consoles should I be looking at?

    soundcraft ghost, mackie 8bus, midas venice? -> but hey, avalon m5 costs around 1500€ and the whole mackie costs3000€(24 preamps) -> ??? I don't think that's ok

    help me out, please!

    regards, pinc

    Chillax with the bumping....

    I would sugest a Mackie CR1604-VLZ Pro for a home studio. They have beautiful XDR preamps and I've seen them on eBay for <$500

    Only prob is they are small rackmount mixers, not much of a big studio console.

    For a huge console, I would suggest a Mackie 8-bus off ebay.
