I'd say go with the Melbourne. Having a full mixing board like that is way better imo. I like using the same preamps on everything, that helps meld all the instruments together to have one sound rather that a bunch of disperate colors that may or may not mix well together.

Also you can use the Melbourne as a summing bus. Daniel Lanois to this day still uses the Melbournes. I'd love to have one but I have to "slum it" with my single 1073 strip heh

Hi

Sorry, but there's nothing class A in a Melbourn.

They are nice consoles, especially with 3114 channel amps, but 1073's they are not.

Hi

Not a lot of people know (to quote Michael Caine) that he had a custom made 24 track Neve console that was divided into separate 19" rack units that fitted in the wardrobes of his bedroom.

Now that's what I call dedication to making music!

I wonder what happened to it?
