ATB24 $4599
ATB32 $5999

IMHO, a lot of "bang for the buck"!
is this msrp or street? do you have any dealers in canada yet?
Out of Tune,

There really isn't a "list price" on the ATB. There is only what we're calling "Pro User", which are the prices above. Dealers will be selling for this price. I guess that means that this is the "Street Price".

Hope this helps clarify.

Marc,
If you get one, can I come over and rawk? I'll bring something cool and some beer.

Is this the board for PM1Kers who want better eq, more aux. sends and more busses?

hells yes you can come over and rawk,

IF I CAN FIGURE OUT WHERE TO GET ONE.

seriously though, i've been watching these since they first came on the radar. i almost did the pilot program. i'd seriously consider buying a 24 channel board if i could check one out (maybe go see raymond) and IF i knew who had them.

info seems hard to come by...

Man, I've always had a solid policy of inviting TapeOppers over to drink beer and fiddle with gear.

Those belong to my stoner drummer. We spent the rest of the tour looking for those keys.

You should come by, we should drink beer, but don't set your coors on my toft man.

looks kida similar to the series 65 channels actually. Suppose they would... just with better IC's I guess and way cheaper than even a used 65.

whats with the button on the underside of the PCB? Some sort or routing preference thing with the direct outs or something?

Hey guys, I am a bit late, but if anyone has any questions on the console, I am happy to help.

Pretty much all of them have been shipped and a lot of good reports have come in, but the ATB is not for eveyone out there, but if there is any specific question or tech question I can answer for you, please just let me know.

Hi Chris!
I had a 16-8-16 Soundtracs, check out my WWW below this post to see a pic. It's preamps were'nt anything like either the Trident 65 or the Sytek I've used in the past. They were more like a cheaper Soundcraft sounding preamp.
Hmmm, I was starting to get sold on this until I saw that. I used a Trident series 65 for a session last summer and it made me absolutely hate the pres on my Ghost and its lack of headroom in the master section. If the pres are no improvement over what I've got, I should probably find something else, huh?
