I use this rack for mobile recording of my R&B band. 16 tracks at a
time. That is a 19" calzone 20-space rack case with shockmount.
I like the 1604 VLZ Pro but I had one with my band and it died.
Warranty was out. We bought an allen and Heath Mixwizard 3 16-2 and
it sounds sooooo much better and has 16 direct outs as well as inserts.
Unless you're running sound as well as recording, you don't need a
mixer. Just get some pres or A/D converters to put in front of your
interface. Something like an RME 9652 and 3 behringer ADA8000 s will
give you 24 channels.
Many 16 channel mixers are rackmountable so you an get ears and get
one of those racks with a slant rack top.
