Do you use an analog console or control surface in the studio? I've been working in the box for some time but am looking to branch out a bit beyond the old mouse and keyboard. If you had no outboard hardware or instruments what would your first purchase be?

I used to use an analogue console because that was all I knew and I found adapting to the ITB way of working quite difficult. Recently I replaced it and my three Fireface 800 interfaces with a Behringer X32 Producer which I love.

The X32 functions as an audio interface, DAW control surface, mixer, FX units, digital patchbay and monitor controller and takes up 1/3 the space of my noisy old analogue console. Plus it has total recall at the press of one button. We use an X32 Rack on stage too and this makes designing the live show in the studio and taking it out onto the stage very easy indeed.

99% of what Behringer make is crap but the X32 is a truly excellent piece of gear. If only it did 96kHz...
