I just want to comment again that the the issue of digital versus analog was not really the question here, and I would also mention the digital solutions mentioned are significantly more costly. Even the 8k b stock board is only 16 channels out of the box, it would be an other few thousand to get up to 40 channels, and then you would have to run sound paging through 3 pages.

I love the LS9, but even that would need expansion to get to 40ch, pushing the cost over 10k, and requiring and other page of channels.

If you have the budget digital is a more sensible choice, in some situations it is actually easier to use than analog.

Paul,

I think this is what has the guys going on about digital. When would you be ready for digital? , and what's to get ready for ? I have installed the LS9 in to liturgical churches that are venturing into contemporary, whose sound guys were clueless and it has performed brilliantly. When set up correctly they can actually reduce the margin of error of the operator.

If your reasoning to not go digital is budget than you have a strong argument, however if it because you are simply not ready for it, that I would suggest getting ready if yo can afford it.

Delay is an EFX function, and also on the studio outputs.
Delay is available through the FX devices, but it is also available on every output port, all the XLR outs, and all 32 slot outs.


Thanks for the clarification. However, aren't there 3 slots with up to 16 outputs per, for a total of 48 slot outs?

Yeah, somehow i thought we had meandered over to an LS9. An M7CL/48 has 3 slots.

Well, we really like our Midas Verona 560.  Handles our needs just fine. The EQ works great and you don't worry about mackie preamp crackle when you get a hot signal.

Midas VERONA is also acceptable..
but for some people, it is un familiar...
for Midas console,
i think its better heritage,,  Very Happy

i've been using VERONA with several audiorent,
and i can't get a good mix..
one day i handle a meeting using verona,
i cant do a god mixing with verona,
but in the next day, the audio rent gives me
a Heritage 3000..
and that day became a great musical mix with Heritage

Do you guys really think a midas verona, M7CL, or MH4 are really boards that that would make sense for a guy coming out of a mackie looking to go into an entry level soundcraft GB4? Is this a who has the best taste in sound boards contest, or an attempt to actually give Paul some useful advice.

My church is interested in purchasing a new 40 channel mixing board and a Soundcraft GB4 40 was recommended. We are not ready to go digital yet or anywhere in the near future. We are very comfortable with an analog board and have no need for a digital board. If anyone has some knowledge on this particular product or could suggest a comparable board I would greatly appreciate it.
Paul


Knowing the number of inputs you need is a start but you also need to determine how many outputs you will need.
Are you using this board for FOH only or is it doing more(monitors, recording...).  
If you are going to be running any FX (reverb...) you will likely want to have post-fade auxes available.  For monitors you would need pre-fade auxes and for recording either post-fade auxes or some kind of matrix output.

Remember to look at all of the features you might need in a board.
