A better mixing desk for electronic music ?
      14/05/10 08:31 AM
Hi everyone! Not really new here, I just created a new profile after two years of inactivity...

I'm about to get a new desk, mainly for summing my Logic tracks (house and techno). Price about 1500-2500 pounds/euros. I currently have a nice little Sony MX-P21. I use it for tracking my SP 1200 to get a my drums punchy and lo-fi. However, while the Sony sounds great for tracking it doesn't work very well for summing, as the headroom is rather small.

So I would need
- at least 8, preferably 16 input channels
- a good EQ
- lots of headroom

After a lot of research I've come to the conclusion that these two are my best options, although never heard either of then:

Amek BC2
pro's: big warm sound, supposed to be ideal for electronic music
cons: vintage=potential maintenance headache, no guarantee, harder to find

Midas Venice 160
pro's: good headroom, good EQ, new!
con's: cold & sterile, subtle compared to the Amek? Will I notice a difference to ITB?


Which one should I get
