Trident and Mackie


frank cuta
 

The phantom blocker is made by Trident, the same outfit that makes the FET head preamp.

The Mackie 1604 was the 16 channel industry standard here before everything went digital. The 1640 adds to the 1604 frame upgraded preamps and the European Perkins E.Q. made most popular by Soundcraft. If you find another board for less than $1,000 with individual phantom on each channel I would like to heare about it.

Thanks. I really don't want to go with Firewire, but I like the idea of the inline phantom blocker. I did not know such a thing existed.
Several people have suggested the Mackie to me. They must be really good and reliable mixers.
Thanks for the information.

Mackie 1640.
No effects no menus not very portable but fantastic performance.
Phantom is selectible on each channel.
However The digital output is firewire not USB.
Its out of production but I just picked up a second one on ebay for about $400.

If you are just concerned about phantom damage to some of your ribbon microphones you can buy a phantom blocker in line adapter for them.

You should reach out to people and radio and AC radio they use. Rita the theme of a CB radio. He was the survey you.

I'm currently using a Yamaha MG10XU.

It has four XLR mic inputs, which is plenty for me.

It also has stereo inputs.

The manual is loaded with pictures that are not well-explained, so I
don't totally understand some of its features.



Features I'm seeking:

The ability to turn Phantom power on and off for specific channels

Tactile controls, either knobs or sliders

A good built-in USB sound card

A blind-friendly user guide

Some FX would be nice, but not a requirement



Ironically, all of these features except the blind-friendly user
guide exist in the Zoom F6 recorder, but I don't want to have it
dedicated too use as a mixer.



Anybody have suggestions?
