Re: 6 XLR mixer?

Legal videographers mixer workhorse is the Shure M367 - 6 inputs. Can interconnect two of them if needed (12 inputs). No longer made, but you can pick up one on eBay between $100 and $200. I even found a used one in perfect condition at B&H a while back. Picked up another one "just in case" from a legal videographer who retired.

Re: 6 XLR mixer?

I, too, have been thinking about the zoom F8. You can order it with what appears to be a nice bag..

Would be interested to hear any comments on practical use of this mixer/recorder.

Some of the newer digital consoles have a direct USB recorder built in (Allen Heath QU16 / 24/32)
Do you need slider faders or would Knobs be ok?
What about a touch surface like some of the mackie desks?
Do you actually need to 'Mix' or would isolated record tracks be better?
What about direct recording to PC or Mac?
Zoom F8?
On my earlier question.... What are you recording onto?

Re: 6 XLR mixer?

If one is planning to use the F8 as a mixer, (not the intended purpose) it's -10dB outputs are a serious issue if feeding pro gear downstream. Otherwise they (zoom) seems to have gotten most else right.. (never thought I'd have anything good to say about Zoom)
