Got a ghost but don't have the options?

Hi Guys

Great forum, wish i'd found it sooner!

I'm currently running a 24ch Ghost LE but I don't really have the room in my new studio and need some advice about something physically smaller.

I produce dance music (I know, I'm scum) and currently run 16 channels from SX3 into an RME digiface -> 2x Behringer ADA8000's -> Ghost + some outboard synths and fx.

Although I love the Ghost to bits I need to go smaller to fit with my smaller studio space. I am looking at several digital options and a good channel strip for recording vox etc..

1) Soundcraft 328xd
2) Tascam DM24 + ADAT option
3) Yamaha 01v96

I have previously owned a couple of early digital desks (VM7200 & 01v) and found them unusable (the vm had an antiquated OS and the 01v just sounded cheap) but I'm wondering if any of the one's i've listed are up to the job or am i deluding myself?

I have also looked at the summing box/mixerless options but I prefer the hands on control that a desk gives.

The 328xd looks the most attractive to me at the moment but i'm basing this purely on the manufacturer. Would going 96k with a DM or 01v96 be massively different quality? and how would you rate the eq's & dynamics on these desks?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I haven't tried any of those digital desks, but you should look into the midas venice as an analog option, sounds great and is tiny as
