which console?

my boss is looking to buy a new console for one of our venues and i am looking for suggestions to consider.

the budget is 4000 ($6400). its a small venue, so i think 32 channels would be enough, but no less and preferably more (ideally 48).

will need to be digital with on board EQ, compressors, e.t.c. because the venue only has one outboard EQ and 2 outboard compressors (which is not enough!)

will obviously need phantom power on every output (but i think thats standard anyway).

thanks for the suggestions

Re: which console?

Unsure of the question. Not trying to be difficult, it's workflow is like a digital console? Head amps, dynamics processing, EQ...

Have you a more specific question?

i was referring to menu layout and things like that. not really a big deal, just some consoles are more logical than others. all can be learnt with enough play time though.

thanks for the recommendation

Re: which console?

I've been looking into getting a Tascam Fw-1884 so I can have some DAW controll and 8 possible recording channels for live drums and stuff. From what i've been looking into, it seems like it will be a pretty cheap (like $250) and awesome upgrade from my M-audio delta 44. I'm a big fan of having a hands on approach to jogging my projects and mixing. I don't know if this is what you meant by "Console" But I think this one is pretty damn sweet for the price. Especially for how usable it would be as a solo electronic producer. hope this helped!
