Soundcraft Ghost LE 24 Analogue Studio Console

£695.00

Soundcraft Ghost LE 24 Analogue 24:8 with Stand

This Soundcraft Ghost LE 24 is in reasonable condition - there is one missing pot and one insert requiring a new connector. The external surfaces have been cleaned with Fast Dry Precision Cleaner.

The console powers up and some channels have been tested, successfully with audio. The PSU is frankly quite noisey but, on the plus side, there is at least 5 metres of cable connecting it to the console - so you can hopefully get the PSU away from the listening environment. It is recommended that the potential buyer arranges an appointment and views the desk as we are selling strictly 'sold as seen' hence the very competive price. We are offering this console as a collect-only option. After inspection the console PSU & Stand can be moved by us to our loading bay where it can be placed in your vehicle.

The Soundcraft Ghost has been used to make hit albums  including Pearl Jam's "Ten" and Testament's album "The Gathering" It is a good solid analogue front end so if you have the space and you've figured that actually you need something slightly more comprehensive than a summing mixer - this could be for you. We cannot take the desk but you are welcome to come along and view and even feed some signal through if required. It would make sense to allow some extra funds for possible servicing but at the listed price it is a bargain.

Soundcraft said this about the Ghost: 
Designing good audio mixers has never been easy - but with the widespread use of ultra-quiet digital recorders, and improvements all through the live and studio audio chain, today’s mixers have to stand up to closer sonic scrutiny than ever before. At the same time, mixing has become less a process that takes place at the console alone, and more one that involves outboard effects, samplers, and synchronisation of audio and video recorders. It’s a big task for a mixer to keep in touch with all of that - which is why Soundcraft created Ghost, the ultimate affordable analogue recording console.

Simply put, Ghost is the only desk that delivers the audio precision, quality and all the control features of a big studio desk without the usual prohibitive price ticket. The EQ, for instance, is directly comparable to that of the classic Soundcraft 3200 and Europa consoles. No compromises.
An all-new mic preamp, ProMic, has been developed just for Ghost. Its performance alone puts Ghost into a different league from other consoles of similar price.
