Looking for advice regarding a mixer
I'm looking to buy a used mixer. I have a budget of around $2500-$3500. I'm not sure if I want a digital or an analog mixer; but I am sure that I would like full automation. I have a lot of outboard effects and synths (pcm81, dsp7000, nord g2, voyager, tube compressor...), so I would like a lot of effects sends, good routing, and at least 24 line ins. I use Sonar with an rme fireface800 and would hope to find a board that would compliment this setup.
The boards I'm looking at, as far as digital, are d8b, dm-24, da7, dm-3200. Any suggestions would be helpful.
