SUMMING GEAR QUESTION: API-8200 or Vermona Synth Inserts?
I NEED to buy a summing mixer for my personal needs, but I also Need to buy an analog drum synthesizer with midi capability.
I was going to buy the summing mixer first as I allready have samplers for drums that will pacify me while I save cash.
The summing mixer is an API rack. But, the Drum Synthesizer I am most interested in has inserts on every channel for processing. So, could the inserts be used as a summing means temporarily? If so, would it sound good enouph for a mix if I used a buss compressor/limiter on the output?
Or is that a dumb idea? The Compressor/limiter I am after is an API-2500.
And if I had an API-2500, would I need a API-8200a or will I only need an API-8200 version?
Just trying to save a few thousand here and there and I am new to the game.
Any advice or opinions on the matter are welcomed, and thanks.
