Default Re: mixing with a 24 8 mackie analog mixer and pro tools

I would not use a mixer unless it was a seriously classy piece like a Trident or a Neve for the sound. It sounds better staying in the box as compared to running thru a cheap mixer like Mackie, Behringer or Soundcraft Spirit (just my opinion). It sounds like you really want a good control surface. A used Control24 might suit you well. Maybe just a Command8? I use the mixer version of the 003 but (as much as I love lots of knobs and faders) I find I just don't grab the faders that much. I generally rough in the mix and fine tune it by editing the automation with the mouse.

The better I drink...the more I mix.....
