TSKB: Mixer Advice - who knows a good mixer?
« on: September 21, 2007, 12:41:32 PM »
I am looking for a good mixer to feed my SD 722.  The SD pre's are good, so it need not have pre's.  4 > 2 is the minimum, but more channels in is OK, too, so long as I am not getting a second mortgage.  Battery powered would be nice, but I do not know if it would be practical.  What's the experience out there?  No, I do not know what I want to spend other than as little as I can and get as much as I can.  The usual impossible parameters.

Thanks    ;)

I think you are going to want preamps. Unless you are using it just for line level sources.

This one is good bang for the buck. Doesn't have pad for really loud sound soures. I think the pan control is just L-C-R.

Rolls ok. No pad for really loud sources. Not sure if you will like the metering. Has variable pan.

Both run on battery.


This is what you should get!!

Uh, yeah, right.  For the same price as the SD 422 I can get an SD 722, and it records!   ;D  That's the rub with the 422.

SD 722 doesn't mix, though. And you said you wanted cheap!

Right on both counts.  I was just emphasizing that for the price of a 422 I can get  722.  The mix would be later in SAM8.  It can be fine tuned very nicely in the editor.  However, as a pro pointed out, you get paid to do the mix when it is live.   8)

The 1402 is not too shabby, either.    ;)

I don't understand this?  Are you wanting to mix multiple channels down to 2 on the fly (that was my initial assumption) or are you wanting more channels?  You can't really "mix later in Samplitude" if you do an on the fly mix with a mixer going into the 722.

Anyway, Oleg has given you the right answer already.

I think the "mix later in SAM" comment was in response to the suggestion of the 442, which was too expensive and for which price he could get another 722 - thereby running 2 x 722 - and simply mix in post.  But, really, he wants to mix from 4-ch > 2-ch live at a more affordable price. That's my take, anyway.
