Well, if you need all that , mind as well buy one of his console !!! but, of course we're talking about 5 x the price...last time i talk to Geoff, he mentioned the 24 channel summing to be in the $ 6500 range and i believe his consoles starts at around $ 35000.

the $ 6500-7000 is for the 24 input monitor mixer, custom sidecar console are MUCH more expensive.

This is their pricelist: I guess they are built on a custom basis.
As far as I know this is the latest, but you should talk to Fletcher.

has anyone actually worked on one of his consoles? I know his modules are great and all but this smells a little like "vaporware" to me. It has been at least five years since I have been hearing about them and I am yet to speak to someone who has either laid eyes on one that has been "installed" or worked on one. I hope I am being a grumpy not too old man but and would love to know that the consoles really are a reality. speaking of trident related designs is MTA still in business?

I know a couple of people who are using a samll console of his...they LOVE it...Billy Ward uses an 8x8 along with his 4 Daking Pre/Eq and Compressors. Billy plays with Joan Osborne, Robbie Robertson, Lenie Stern...just to name a few.

that's cool. I guess I meant the big ones. I don't mean to be a naysayer as I sincerely hope he is able to get these off the ground as I think another quality analog console manufacturer would be a wonderful thing. I just have yet to here of one really existing. Did I mention that I think API make great sounding stuff but are a bullshit organization and I would love to see them have some competion.
oops.

Perhaps this is for another topic but my experiences with them have been hardly stellar. Consoles arriving miswired and and with items unshipped. Years later a couple grand worth of stuff still . The only explanation. "That was the old company(pre ATi involvement.)" Even though it still paul wolff. How many times have they shifted through new corporate identities? I don't deny that they make great stuff but man I'd like to see Daking succeed as another option would be wonderful.

In his Tape Op interview Geoff Daking mentioned that a couple full console configurations have shipped. Also, it seemed that this is a redesign that is different from the stuff they were kicking around years ago.

It would be nice if Daking can make a go of it, as it would be amazing to have a discrete transformer coupled console available new and with a warranty. Still wouldn't help *me* much, but a guy can dream.

The Daking stuff sounds good, but I always thought it was WAY overpriced. If they knocked $300 off their compressors, I'd buy a pair. The prices FOURTHTUNZ quoted are just way too expensive in a market where established, sought after consoles go for cheaper used.

I'm not a dealer so I have no idea how much wiggle room there is.
