I had this opportunity to take over a small 2 room studio two years ago. The previous owner left nearly all gear there for free use. This includes a big digital console, a Tascam DM4800. Its an awesome piece of gear, but I really dont use it that much. It even limits my workflow in some cases. And its big footprint has lots of acoustical disadvantages (early reflections). I could very well live without it from a technical standpoint. Honestly, I would like to remove it from the studio. But it gives the customers that wow-impression once they walk into the control room. Lots of moving faders & knobs, big meter-bridge they really like it and it seems they feel better than only a desk with pc & interface/pres Would you keep such a digital console when its only reason is to wow the customers? Luxus-problems I know!
