saw a Alice 12 channel Stancoil for sale the other day – thats another option I’ve been considering. although am tempted just to save for my dream mixer a lil Studer 962 (which I mainly want for its pre’s), or a Calrec or Neve 542 if I sell a kidney. when you guys talk about the noise level on the Stancoil’s are we talking light background hiss or something else? As with most I’m mainly interested for tracking/recording rather than doing a mixdown. Sounds like a well put together mixer I must say!
