18 years ago, we bought this console from an upcoming rapper who had just signed his record deal. He wanted the latest and the greatest to record his album on, so he took his advance and bought this. Problem was he did not have a clue how to use it. Lee said, “yeah man this thing is not really useful to you. Too much to learn. naaaa, you should get rid of it while its still new…I know,,,sell it to me at a steep discount.” and so he did. According to Lee, we paid less than 1/3 of the store price and made our gear-head mackie mixer having friends very jealous
Right now, we connected all our analog equipment directly from the patch bay to our audio interface Apogee Symphony, then to the monitors which seems to works, but we do not have direct control over our different input and output signals.
We’d like your opinion. What should we replace our Sony mixer with! A Digital Mixing Console? Control Surface? (ie Slate Raven) or should we just go mixerless? What do you guys would like to see in our main studio?
