    I am putting my studio back together again (kids are older now and I am younger).

    I have gone DAW and like it but up until now I was doing a project at a friend's studio and just wanted to do overdubs at my place hence the minimal equipment (Mackie 1404).

    I am wanting to start doing tracking at my place now and teh 1404 just doesn't cut it. I need more auxiliauries at least and some descent preamps. I don't have 16 discrete preamps!

    I only need to record maximum 16 tracks at once with 12 being the average so I don't need a huge console.

    The new Mackies will have a Firewire interface and that interests me but I have grown tired of the Mackie sound. Its not a bad sound its just very sterile to my ears.

    The board that seems to be the most interesting to me is Tascam's DM24. It also has a Firewire I/O option. That option would allow me to get rid of my MOTU 828 and my Mackie.

    I will be trying the DM24 soon but I wanted to see if others have opinions about it and or any other mixer in that price range or higher like a Soundcraft Ghost.

    What about a Ramsa DA7?

    I am at a standstill right now. Not wanting to make wrong decision.

    Your opinions are valued.
    Thanks.

    If you want something really sweet, get a Midas Venice 240 and your choice of digital interfaces. Here's a http://www.recording.org/postt11167.html of a previous thread. On the digital side, you could expand your MOTU setup, move to Apogee, it's quite a range. But I'd definitely look at what the Venice could do for you.[/url]

    Thanks I will check the Midas out. There is a question of budget as well. Apogee would be nice but I need a mixer m ore than quality converters (I couldn't use the Apogees if I don't have a mixer to track first, but I can drool at the thought!).
