Daking 1112 console

Does anyone have any info on these consoles? Pricing would be good to know, as would more detailed routing information etc..

Has anyone even seen one?

thanks,

fish

p.s. I know there are threads on this, just wanted to see if there were any updates.

Call Geoff Daking

Geoff will send you literature. I think the 24 channel with full master section etc is around 55k.

i have one of these consoles, i can look at it

i have one of these consoles
it sounds great
it is physically beautiful almost like no other console, certainly unlike anything
close to its price range

i am unfamiliar with prices right now, mine is three years old
in terms of value, i think it soars

tapes have moved frequently back and forth between neve and api rooms without
any discussion leaving the realm of music and production - the sounds whether
basics or overdubs translate very well from room to room

geoff has a strong comittment to his products - he is very bright and full of energy -
all of that comes through in these boards

in terms of routing , there are 8 busses, direct outs and however crafty you want to get with your patchbay....

anyway
session now
more later

be well

I have a 32 input Daking Console

I have a 32 input, with a 24 channel juke box.
Other then a few minor problems, it has been wonderful, and sounds amazing.
I am partially responsible for Geoff creating this thing!
I purchased 24 channels of his original mic pre amps, the vertical 52270's and have 8 of his compressor limiters. When it came time for me to decide on a new console, Geoff was the logical choice.
I loved his stuff so much that I asked him (and helped fund) to develope the console which is now for sale!
If you have any specific questions. don't hesitate to ask.
I believe the console I own would be about $90k give or take?

Thanks for the responses. Upgrading my console, primarily for the purposes of tracking indie/acoustic rock but also for mixing too. I'm trying to convince myself that I can afford this console, especially what with my being in the UK (so tax, shipping etc..).

Fishman, contact Raf Lenssens at Joystick Audio in Belgium - he's a lot closer to home in terms of dealing with shipping and taxes, and he has already installed a Daking console in a European studio

Here's another vote for the Raf Lenssens route.
I got 2 Daking MicPre/EQ's from him.
Excellent support.

cheers
