What exactly are mixers for? I never really fully understood that. It was explained to me to a certain extend a long time ago but I never really learned what the full meaning of using one is.


Mixer allows you to record several instruments at the same time, it can serve as an audio-interface - this one in particular has a firewire connection and can work as audio interface. Cool thing about it is that you can use both Line-inputs and mic-inputs to use microphones to mic your guitar amp.

In studio Mixers work for "mixing" (really? biggrin.gif) and can work in combination with software if the software supports the certain hardware. Well, all in all - you get the idea. Tonymiro can help you much more about it as he's a real specialist in this area. I'm a n00b in mixing so i want to get it to learn to use it and see what my possibilities are with mixer in my small home studio smile.gif

+1 with what Pavel says about mixers.

Just to add that a mixer will also allow you to eq (ignoring any possible additional effects/processors that the mixer may have) at the recording and/or mixing and or mastering stage. And as Pavel says it allows you to bring together different formats and unify them ie XLR, Digital, TRS, 1/4'' jack etc inputs and put out as a digital toslink. It allows you to group together tracks, etc to apply a common recording/mixing theme. It allows you to set and adjust the gain, stereo balance etc in real time. Some mixers allow you to set and use multiple monitoring setups - so you can have one for the main stereo mix, another for the vocalist and so on. One thing to be slightly wary of - a mixing/recording mixer/console is different to a live mixer and different again to a summing mixer. Mic preamps on a good mixer are usually high quality. Mixers are also a very good way of bussing out stems/final mix etc to a /Reel to Reel/DAT/tape deck/CD recorder etc.

On some mixers you can show off a bit by setting up some auto stuff - for instance I can set my faders to automatically follow changes so they move by themselves when you play the recording back - maybe a bit silly but it seems to impress people a lot when they see the console working by itself biggrin.gif cool.gif . (Maybe much more useful is that I set scenes for different songs and occasional multiple scenes within a single song - a scene lets me switch mier setups all at once as a group.)

Cheers,
Tony

Assassin's Creed is such a good game, you should definitely get it. I already beat it. I want to get Mass Effect, Call Of Duty 4 and Conan looks pretty good also.

Yeah, I read so many reviews that said that it was no good, but I've had a ton of people tell me that it's great. So I guess I going to go with the majority on this.

And, yeah, Mass Effect and CoD4 look great; I dont know about Conan though...

All I want for Christmas is a few effects pedals. I hate digital effects and especially multi effects so I always get single pedals and usually analog ones.
