Our mixer is the Mackie d8b which comes as close to mixing on an analogue board as we have found. It has 56 inputs comprised of 12 mic/line, 12 line, 24 tape returns, and eight alternative returns. The console is fully programmable with motorized faders. Mixes are easy to compare back and forth with snapshot recall of any mix settings. Advanced settings for EQ, gate and compressor are available for each channel individually. Light pipe fiber optic connections between the mixer and recorder mean that audio never leaves the digital realm while in production. Listen to each speaker by itself with our Grace M906 monitoring system.
