From an article about recording with Jonathan Rado: "The D’Addario brothers’ home studio has a smattering of new gear and a bunch of stuff from their father’s heyday including; a Tascam 80-8 eight-track, which runs 1/2-inch tape at 15ips, Mackie 16-channel 1604-VLZ Pro, Yamaha HS7 monitors, an old Alesis XT reverb, and a dbx 1066 compressor."more
I bring this mixer with me to my live gigs as a hub to stem out the sounds I use. I don't do much eq-ing on it as I believe the 909, Octatrack and Minitaur are full ranged enough. It's nice and portable and sounds good enough to pack a Analog punch in the club. For efx I have a foot pedal wired up to a Cathedral so that I can do so dramatic build-ups..
