EPM8-Enough bang for the buck
I'm starting to get serious about recording live bands, but I don't have the bucks to buy the "bug guy stuff", yet, so what I'm basicly using right now is a Zoom H6, some decent mikes, and now this board. I wanted to be able to mix the drums and possibly some other stuff, plus maybe set some EQ's or something, so I popped for this board since I've always heard good things about Soundcraft. Right now I'm only recording our 5 piece band, and only doing a 3 mic setup on the drums, with the PA speaker miked, so for now the zoom is enough and so is this board. I really like the board. It seems quiet enough, I don't really have any other boards to compare it with, but it feels solid, and does what it's supposed to do. I also manage to use lo to hi adaptors on two of the mikes and use the stereo inputs for that. I ordered an LR-16 recorder by Cymatic, and I'm just going to use my other board to be able to have enough mike outputs for the Cymatic. Marc.
