Err, that should be "Sonifex" (google for their S2 mixer, which is selling like
hot cakes at the moment). Alice sell the "Air 2000" console which has been a
true work horse in the UK for a number of years. Soundcraft have a few models
suitable for broadcast, although their home studio and general purpose mixers
spring to mind first. I'll also add Clyde Broadcast to the list, the "Eclipse"
model is their analogue offering - their digital mixer ties you somewhat to
There are a number of European manufacturers, and doubtless some American ones
too (although I've not really looked, since I'm in Britain), but at the end of
the day, as Dan says, it comes down to budget. You're probably looking at a
bill of over $10,000 for the units I've mentioned above.
Whatever you do, don't neglect to buy a couple of CD players in case the
computer fails for some reaon.
