    Within the next month I will be upgrading my studio to a Digi 002 and will be needing a good mixing console to use with it.I want to spend about £1000-2000 any reccomendations?

    you don't really need a mixer, the digi 002 has one of its own.

    The digi 002 can be used as a stanalone mixer For live use but not when recording, as it used used as a control surface for pro tools LE. I need a desk to eq the drums ect before they go to the digi 002 plus I will be planning to record about 20 instruments at once at times so I need a 24 channel desk. I think I am going for the mackie[img]http://www.digitalvillage.co.uk/images/4/mackie_sr24.jpg[/img] or i might even go for th 32 channel one. Anyone else have any other reccomendations? I want to check out absolutly everything before spending all that money.

    The Behringer Eurodesk 8000 is what I use...designed by the same guy who built the Mackie but much cheaper.
    It has 48 channels in total...24 of them with full EQ and 6 auxiliaries, and the other 24 with basic treble bass, volume and panning, which are great for sampler outs, PC outs, keyboards etc. It's an 8 bus desk, very similar to that in yer photo.
    I love mine............

    If you can afford it, almost anything by Soundcraft sounds great.
    The mic pre-amps are really good and transparent and the eq is generally better than is to be found on similar priced desks.
    Haven't heard the Behringer tho.
    Stay away from Allen & Heath studio desks.
    Not very well designed imo.

    I have the money but what soundcraft do you recommend? I have heard good things about the Behringer and the Mackie but I am used to using a soundcraft desk for recording drums so It might be an option.
