I need to buy a mixer for playing out. I've looked at a couple and ran across the Yamaha EMX5000. Then it hit me to maybe do a little killing 2 birds with one stone. This mixer also has inserts for each mono channel, so why not use it for recording. I should be able to patch in the Delta 1010 ins and outs through the inserts? No?
I'm thinking that will work but I'm not sure where this will be putting the signal in the chain through the mixer, I know I won't be able to use external effects if the outputs are already occupied. But my questions are will this bypass the EQ settings for each channel as well? Will the fact that the mixer has several fairly large amplifiers built in increase noise levels?
I'm using a couple of inferior mixers right now an old as in ancient 8 channel Foxtex and a lets just call it the B word MX3242. So it would take much to make me happy. I do most of my recording with external preamps direct into the 1010s. But I like to run my mixes through the mixer for mixing direct to cassette or CD. I haven't quite figured out how to do it with my very basic GTP 3 software
