High Quality - Low Price
Great console for the money!Â_ I would like to see 4 band EQ, but the sweeping mid works just fine for those with mixing experience.Â_ I highly recommend this board for all church installations as the footprint is very small, the two digital effects generators are more than sufficient and you can always add more channels with a second mixer.Â_ My home church (Calvary Community Church - Las Vegas)install features a 32/14FX and a 24/14FX side by side (take off the ends to make them match - just leave a little space for heat to escape). This will give you 40 mic inputs and 8 stereo inputs.Â_ You'll use one stereo input on the 32/14FX as the second board's "master" (L out on the 24/14FX to chan 31 input on the 32/14FX, R out on the 24/14FX to chan 32 input on the 32/14FX).Â_ This gives any church more than enough channels for microphones, CD, DVD, powerpoint, etc. at a very affordable investment!Â_ Plus you get 4 digital effects generators built in (put the drums/percussion in the second board and you get 2 dedicated effects just for the drums and percussion).Â_ The next "bargain" board with that many channels is either a Mackie, Allen-Heath or Yamaha pricing out at almost twice the investment with no built in effects.Â_ You can also get 8+ monitor mixes by using a 32/14FX on stage (requires splitter snake and lots of cabling). We record every service off the house 32/14FX L-R outs, allowing us to control the mono house level independantly from the record level. We use a mono signal for the house system to KIS (Keep It Simple) for the volunteer help. The recorder is in stereo and the input level is controlled with the master stereo fader. Easy for volunteers to learn and use.
No need to compromise quality for small budget - Just pick up a Yamaha 32/14FX. You will not be disappointed!
