Home studios are changing fast. Many producers are ditching their traditional mixers and opting to mix 'in the box', while turning to the new wave of summing mixers to re-introduce some analogue warmth.
Tube fanatics TL Audio (tlaudio.co.uk ) have done their homework with the Fat Track Tube Production Suite. It boasts two all-valve recording channels with mic pre-amps, EQ and send, plus eight more inputs for the summing stage and two extra returns.
This tasty bit of kit will set you back a tad under £1300 and is expected to arrive before the end of the year.
