I am in the very beginning stages of planning a studio build. I have a reasonable budget to work with. I am not aiming to build a world class studio, my budget is not that big but I want something industry standard as possible with brands musicians will be happy to record on/with. M biggest thought right now is about what console to build my studio around. I can not afford a console like a Neve or most SSL, API type desks. I will say for the moment that I will have a budget for the desk of $20k - $30k USD. As I have not done this to this scale before I would appreciate advice on the different option I may have. I want a minimum of 24 channel but would prefer 32 channel if I can get it. I would consider a combo of desk and 500 series or similar. DAW integration is important as far as tracking to digital is concerned but I plan to do all mixing ITB via a Raven in a separate post production room so flying faders is not a priority at all. This is the console for tracking only but I would like to have some outboard to use during tracking. Any ideas will be helpful at this point. Cheers.
