I am still wondering why nobody has made a 8 channel module lunch box.

8 channels makes more sense than a 6 to me. And it shouldn't be that heavy to lug around.

Sorry for the late response.

I could just make recordings with the Juggernaut's but absolutely prefer to have the MA5 and 512C there as well. Why? Because they are different enough to justify owning. I figured since the Juggernaut is the most versatile of the three, it would make sense to own the most of those.

I can't make the Juggernaut sound like the other two. I also cannot make the other two sound like the Juggernaut. That's why I own all three.

I would love to have more of all of them. But that will have to wait due to the new Elysia 500 series compressor.

I have a Great River also and love it. Might I suggest that you give some consideration to the Electrodyne 501 mic pre. I find it to be extremely versatile. It sounds great with everything that I through at it.

Good luck with your search,

Cory

Bex, try going out of your Juggernaut #1, then into the input of Juggernaut #2 (with a 30db inline pad in between). They couple very well in series like that, and you can get a ton of coloration if needed.

Sooooooo true. When doing location projects, it's easier to lug 8 channels in 1 or 2 U rack configs, than to carry 2 lunch boxes. An 11 is too big. 6, 10 and 11 are such odd numbers when everything seems to be in multiples of 8.

I'd be the first to ditch my 6 slot for an 8.

OSA used to, IIRC.

API should offer the 6b w/ external psu, making it an 8b. Don't know what's involved but I'm sure an existing 6b could be modified to accept 2 more cards.

So would an 8 module with external supply be more needed, or an 8 module with internal supply be more needed by engineers in general? The external would be approx the same size as a 6b, the internal would be the same size as a 10/11 module rack.

Personally, I'd be ok with external PSU. I just bundle cables/wall warts in the road case behind the Furman, with the power connector coming out of a hole.

Here's where I'm at. Got a dedicated 10 space for compressors, a 10 space for EQ's, a 6 space for 3 double wides, and an Atlas Pro Audio Revolver holding my Elysia Xpressor. I would say that the only pieces of gear that I'm not in love with yet are my Purple Audio Tav's. They sound great, but I'm wondering if I would like another pair of Little Devils because of their color and the flexibility of 4 bands and selectable frequencies. The fixed frequencies on the Tav are making it so they work on some things, but not a ton for me yet. Good success on kick, snare, and some vocals though. Anyway, here they are. Really happy with these units. - paul

Mr. Eldred,

I would buy an eight slot lunchbox with either internal or external PSU as long as it was rackmountable (maybe removable ears) and if you want to really make a splash come up with a way to safely cover the front panel with a hard shell for transport so it really is portable.

Best regards,
Alex

Thanks Gents, I'm definitely a ***** for gear. Can't help myself very much. Atleast my wife digs me enough to deal with my obsession. It's taken me a while to arrive at this collection. Sent a lot of stuff back, but I feel like I've finally arrived at a place where I've got a pretty diverse set of options. Some really powerful units there. Makes me happy. - paul

Nathan what about an 8 space with the PSU behind a couple of modules?
I think the remote PSU would be to easy to leave at the studio and since you would need a custom PSU for the +-16 and the Phantom This could be problematic!
Also the one stupid thing I love about my Beatup old Apex TT Jacks easy to interface with most patchbays!
