[ddots-l] Re: Mackie Onyx with Firewire

sorry to bother the whole list with this, but I've found that at this time at 
least, this list and the products discussed are not for me. I've tried without 
success twice now to unsubscribe, but I am still getting messages. 
    Can the list moderators/owners please remove me? 
Thanks, and best to all of you.

  No.  The Taskam is a soundcard, mixer and control surface, all rolled into 
one.

    If I use the Taskam, would I still use another mixer? Sorry, but i'm not 
familiar at all with the taskam, so my questions about it are going to be 
somewhat rudamentary.

      well, I think if I had the money and I were you then, I would go for a 
Taskam FW1884.  It has good pre-amps, and has automated faders.  It's a really 
nice sound card and control surface.  Also, you could add more inputs to it, at 
a later date, by purchasing some extra personas pre-amps for it.

        Hi Phil:

        I don't use separate pre amps yet. It's been suggested to me by a 
salesman that the higher end mixers have good pre amps built into them. I'm in 
the process of purchasing all new equipment for the studio because I'm 
scheduled to train with Gord in November. So I'm just asking all these 
questions now so I know what to buy and so I can have everything here and ready 
to go by the time he gets here. I guess that for now, it's the digital 
conversion thats in question here.

        Thanks.

          Omar, the Mackie is supposed to be very good.  Hard to say whether 
you would achieve better results with that over the Delta.  Unless, the preamps 
that you have attached to your delta aren't as good as the Mackie ones or, the 
digital converters in the Macki, are better than the Delta's.

            Hi Everyone:

            A salesmen at Guitar Center recommended that I use a Mackie Onyx, 
which is one of their higher end mixers with a firewire card. He says the 
firewire card can become replacement for the delta 44 soundcard that i'm 
currently using. He says that I'll get much better quality when converting to 
digital with the firewire card that comes with the onyx mixer. So I wanted to 
get some feedback from you guys before I made a decision on this.

            Thanks.

            Omar Binno
