Hi everyone,

I’m looking for a compact mixer for gigs and live-streaming. Needs to have usb in/out (for Mainstage etc if I want to try that), effects, and at least three XLR inputs and two stereo pairs/4 pannable mono 1/4” inputs. The Soundcraft Notepad-12FX seems to fit the bill perfectly, and is $50 cheaper than the Yamaha MG-10XU, which is the next option. Plus it’s smaller, and the smaller, the better.

With the smaller Yamahas, there’s an adapter that lets you attach the mixer to a mic stand. Using a mic attachment on a keyboard stand, you could have your small mixer right above your board. Has anyone found a similar solution for the Soundcraft model or something like it?


Thank you,

Max

There are a lot of laptop stands, maybe something like this one would work?

If you're handy with tools, you can always attach a standard mic thread flange to the bottom plate of the mixer, but don't go drilling holes without opening up the mixer and knowing how much clearance you have for screws between the bottom panel and the bottom of the circuit board. Of course that means the mixer won't sit flat on a table any more. Maybe the mixer you're looking at is small enough to fit one of those gizmos that's intended to hold a tablet and mount it with mic stand hardware.
