Mixing Desk Recommendations?

I'm in need of a new analogue mixing desk. The things I'm looking for it to have are:

  • Between 12 - 24 channels
  • Phantom Power
  • Built-in Compression
  • Really good EQ.
  • Be cheaper than £600
  • Built-in effects would be a bonus

I ordered a Yamaha MG 24/12FX on Friday only to find it won't be in stock until the end of the month! Not good enough, I want one sooner.

My budget is £0-600. I can maybe push £650.

Do any of you guys own a mixing desk with these things? If so, would you recommend them?

Be patient
Go for the Yamaha, as that seems to be your first of choice

Turns out my impatience got the better of me and I got the Mackie CFX16 MKII. I ordered it on Tuesday and it arrived yesterday, awesome service by the store. It's a pretty good mixer, only thing it doesn't have that the Yamaha did have is built-in compression and has sixteen channels, as opposed to Yamaha's 24.. On the plus side though, it was £100 cheaper! No worries though, I'll just buy a compression unit!

I'm using it live tonight at my bands show. I hope it's as good as I think it is!

Congratz with the new mixer! Wish you and bands best on stage and blast the crowd away with your sound
Can we hear that somewhere online? I mean the music your band plays..

Indeed you can, Divine Sinn

Tonight was awesome. A really good show, haven't seen a crowd that energetic before! Just got home now and I need a shower... I'm sweaty as hell! Not that you needed to know that.

Anyway, enjoy the music. Let me know what you think.

IF you find a Yamaha AW 4416 going cheap,snap it up

Great mixer,with good FX-and on top of that it can record your bands gigs as your playing and burn to CD after for you to sell

Bought one about 6 months ago as I was fed up recording in my home studio with low volumes,and the sound quality is superb

Just heard your band,some nice distorted guitars there

This is a small solo section of my band recorded live on the YAM,to show you its potential as a mixer and hard disk recorder.No fx were added to this but the YAM has some realy good verbs,delays,comps,limiters that can be used on all tracks

Wow, that does sound pretty sweet. Nice pinch harmonics, by the way. Can't beat 'em, I do my band member's head in with pinch harmonics.

Thanks! On tour again now, that's always the best part! I don't think I've fully recovered from Thursday yet, my neck is still sore! I just watched some video footage from that night and it's so awesome seeing it. The crowd were amazing.

lol yeahh between myself and the other guitarist in the band there are LOADS of pinch harmonics in every tune.As rock guitarists I feel we always have too,same as vibrato-if you land on a note for some time you might as well shake the life out of it for whats its worth
