selling a discrete neve....

Hi all,

Am I crazy, Am I dumb....?

After months of using a nice, mid seventies, modified Neve broadcast console mostly as a front-end for pro tools, I have come to the conclusion that I could give a better commercial edge to my studio selling it... to be dismanteled most likely and sold as racked units....

Keeping an 8 channel sidecar for my own use....

And getting a used VR or legend instead that would be more flexible and easier live with when tracking to tape...

Comments.....?

Thanks in advance

I Pity the FOOL!!!!!!!!....

VR, Baby V are cool but no patch on a serious discrete board... do it and u will be regrettng where all the bottom end went!..lol

What sort of desk is it?

What sort of music do you do most?

I agree it is sometimes harder to mix on older discrete Neves but once u get around the hurdle its a joy and godsend to hear the EQ ad burn the headroom of the mix buss!

Discrete versus IC?...... hmm u work it out!

Let us know!

I am thinking of passing a GEARSLUTZ bill of makig it illegal to rack up or break up funtioning classci neve consoles.... lol

PEACE
Wiggy
