what makes those old consoles sound so good

DIY mixer question It seems that there is much less to these consoles than there is to an outboard mic pre. (complexity wise) we are only talking about some faders (pots) and pan pots with an output gain stage. My question is where is the great sound coming from. I bought a bunch of alpha sliding po...

got ya , what i meant was that i was going for a well tracked gritty guitar sound and what i got was a preamp distorting in a way that didn't help. so i don't mind that i have to reamp but i doubt i will ever get it 'right' by fixing it during the mix. its actually turining into something sompletely...

good ideas guys, the mic was about 1.5 feet away, cables could have been an issue ill check. voltage comment was based on the fact that i thought pre amps need a certain level to be operating in their optimal range (if your signal is too hot you would have to turn preamp down too low which gets it o...

what is wrong with this!@

i tracked a hollow body through a fender amp with an LD condensor (PAD at -10) I had to turn my RNP almost all the way down to avoid clipping. i know that this is shit because the preamp isn't operating with enough voltage and the sound is thin. what did i miss here???

im trying to go the same route. get 16 channels out of the digi and go into a allen and heath or something. that seems to be the way that most people that i respect do things.

question now is where the hell do i find a good sounding board with 16+ channels that isn't 2 grand or more.
