A&H: direct outs

i'm looking at the A&H GL2, GL2S, and MixWizard wz3 boards.
These all feature direct outs, but it's not clear to me from what I've read whether or not they are post-fader?

Thanks for info!

Seriously doubt it was installed to code.
Nothing in this place seems up to code. I'll purchase an outlet tester and post back. At this point I'm suspecting a bad neutral.

allen and heath r16

I saw this mixer recently and am wondering if anyone has experiences with it, good or bad. I saw this review: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/nov08/articles/allenandheathzedr16.htm Pretty extensive and encouraging. The one thing I've noticed is that the mixer doesn't seem to have the option to recor...

This is great info - thank you.
I'll try to assess which one of these situations mine falls into. I'll start by talking to the building owners of the apartment.

Thanks again very much!

@vvv

Thanks. Good advice about the way things are built nowadays.
I agree w/ you about the measurement thing.

@kslight - ghosts :)

power concerns

Hi, I'm looking to manage my power situation for my home studio. FWIW, I have everything running through power conditioners that go into a backups unit. The building that I live in doesn't seem to have clean power, to say the least. On one of the breakers, the fridge will dim the lights when it cycl...

yeah; i absolutely love the venice; but it's so bulky and the 16R feels like it's missing some channels and functionality. oh well... looks like i should just get one.

the QU 16 looks nice! Huh - I wonder how the preamps and EQ are?
I think I'd prefer analog because a lot of times the EQ and preamps sound characteristic and add something to the sound, rather than being "cold" and "digital".

...those motorized faders look great...

I'd much prefer that cocktail to this type of exploration, although I think I'd get whiskey involved. :wink:

i should mention that i'd love something like the venice midas 32 (because i can track in via firewire), but i'm not a fan of how large, heavy, and anti-rack unit it is (there is a nice 8-channel rack vers., but that's you know... just 8 channels). really not portable for me. i also don't like the o...
