    Let us see how many members use a digital board for recording/mixing tasks.

    I divided brands in numbers so you may specify models also.

    (1) Behringer gear

    (2) Yamaha

    (3) Tascam

    (4) Roland

    I use an ancient Tascam TM-D1000, most for monitoring.

    Thinking about picking up some sort of Firewire mixer/interface in the future.

    Well let's see?? I have used the SSL Axiom, which was in credibly complex and in credibly comprehensive but didn't work on it long enough to get very comfortable.

    Lately I've been doing some mixing on a TASCAM DM24. Almost as complex and comprehensive for this $1,500 no longer made, digital console as its $250,000 SSL rival, as long as you don't mind mixing with 1 finger at a time? Of course, you can automate the entire mix, when locked with the recorder/computer.

    I still think most of the microphone preamplifiers suck on these digital desks but I think most microphone preamplifiers suck? That's why I use API and Neve as my front end, whenever I can but I've made some awesome sounding recordings with those horrible TASCAM microphone preamps because it's not what you've got but what you do with it.

    Zippy and Snappy my favorite digital artifacts.

    In studio I've done sessions with:

    Sony DMX-R100
    Mackie D8B

    On tour:

    Yamaha PM5DRH
    Yamaha MC7L

    I absolutely love the 5D, but I'm counting the days until I get to play with the new Midas XL8

    Yamaha 02R96V2 and Yamaha 01V96

    Previously I used the 02Rv2 and the 01VOf.

    I agree that half a dozen high end pres would be a nicer front end, but in my case I do need 16-24 good mic pres frequently as I do lots of choir+small orchestras.
