Help me with buying a mixer for my needs
So I would like some opinions on what to get.
Here's my requirements. I mainly make electronic /dub music. I am looking for something with at least 16-24 inputs as most of my samplers and gear have 8 outs on each easy. I have a few other stereo channels coming from 2-3 other synths.
I am looking for (if possible) something that has direct outs so I can use the EQ's pre/Post fader.
I have some semi-decent reverbs and delays and an eventide eclipse. I hope to add a few more pieces. So 6 aux's if possible.
possibly Tape returns/ SPDIF or USB so I can route so things back from my MAC.
Not sure if I would need 4or 8 bus in there as well. Price range, $1000- $2000.
Been looking at the A&H ZED436 or 420 and Soundcrafts.
I appreciate all your input.
