Hey folks Ive been contacted by a label who is interested in reissuing my ambinet studio projects ancient material on a best of type compilation and then releasing a new album sometime after. It's been a long time since I did any of this stuff (over a decade) so I was curious if anyone around here does home recording and could tell me anything good or bad about the following equiptment I'm thinking of getting:
Firstly I'm looking at the Korg D3200 32 track digital studio that can have the tracks ping ponged up to 226 tracks (!!) and the final mixes dumped onto CD-R. I was thinking this would be a good piece to remaster the material but the kid at the store said it really would only be able to equalize the music and not really change too much of the physical properties of the original final mixes such as tightening or compression. That would need to be done on a sound computer program, that's out for me as my PC sucks! But it looks like it's be a great recorder/mixer for the new material.
Next for my first new synth I'm looking at the Roland Fantom 7 which has a great set of synth workstation features with soud expansion bays (the optional orchestral sound board looks amazng) and lots of sampling and voice modeling capabilities. Korg Trinity is nice but about twice the price and outt my reach for the big "comback" CD ! lol
Anyways, Is anyone familiar with either of these units, or remastering finalized mixes in general?
