    Just got through mixing down the usable parts of our last 2 gigs.

    http://www.sarasotaslim.com/music.html

    I got the Alesis HD24 and used the inserts on my Mackie CFX20 directly to the HD24. Audix OM6's on the vocals, kick drum has a Audix D6 internally mounted, the toms have D2's inside them, the snare had a D3 clipped to it and an ATM4050 down low under the snare. Bass was direct. The Leslie has 2 D3's on top L & R and a D4 centered for the bottom, the combo Fender guitar amps have a D3 placed inside the back laying on the reverb bag pointing toward the speaker.

    Here's my old recording rig

    it's for sale to a local buyer CHEAP - comes with lots of used tape.

    Thanks both of you.

    And now that I know someone has actually listened to it I will describe some more of the particulars.

    The mixing was done old school analog by hand.
    D>A converted out of the Alesis HD24 into my Mackie SR24.4 board.
    A cheap Lexicon Alex reverb
    Presonus compressor-limiter inserted on the lead vocal channel at mixdown
    Out the board into an old Panasonic 3700 DAT on standby/record
    out the back of the DAT SPIDIF out into the ProTools Digi001 SPIDIF in and my Mac G4 - - becoming a stereo ProTool file. Convert the file to AIFF open in BiasPeak - edit - send to Jam & Toast - burn CD. (Then convert to .mp3 files via iTunes and upload to my web site)
