Analog console... oops.

so, um. this happened.


the armrest is off of it (hence the ribbon cables), I'm having it reupholstered. This console is modular, 24 ch 4 bus. I'll be pulling each of these channels for cleaning/refurb. ALSO, to do: build a ton of xlr to 1/4in trs cables (1/4 inch inputs) and score a patchbay.

*Had to google Ramsa console as I've never heard of the name before*

Nice!
Happy soldering/patchbaying!

The Ramsa console is the one that yells "you donkey!" at you when you remove modules.

I'm still waiting on this supposed vintage TEAC mixer I'm getting for free through my dad...which would be a fantastic winter project as well...

It also works very well to convince prospective clients you're a real audio engineer with a real studio.

Plus you can put your beer on it.

Re: analog console... oops.

Well there are Plus and Minus in working with consoles IMO.
+ of course they bring analog sound instantly with no any your action.
- lack of flexibility if you require some different "color" of sound

In sum I guess there's no single "right" answer. It's all depends on one's aim and skills level

totally.

my plan is to do most of my mixing as i would, in the box.

from there i'll create 8 stereo subgroup outputs that I'll then sum and "sweeten" in the analog domain, and mix back to 2 channels in my DAW. Circuitry sounds good, i've always thought so, the chaos of voltage's affect on sound is a pleasant thing. I'll end up with coloration (good or bad, thats my choice) from simply engaging the eq without applying any gain.

and if worse comes to worse it was simply an investment of time $ and energy. there is always more $ time and energy.

upadate. 16 LXR cables are now in my posession, and now a mixer stand as well. I'm 2 Beheringer ADA8000's away from analog mixing.

Grabbing those this weekend.

Re: Analog console... oops.

You see, if I had a large analog mixer I would do ridiculously stupid stuff with it. Like buy a cheap microphone for each channel, place them wherever I felt like, and make the worlds strangest sounding reverb.
