Line Mixer?

Recommended Posts

wondering what type of line mixers everyone is using for playing live. I went from using one keyboard thru a DI box to go thru our snake to our mixing console. I added another keyboard and once they come out with the motif es rack I am going to add that also....but want to submix. Right now I am using a spare behringer board that I had and going out the xlr out to the snake (basically to submix my keyboards)...but would like to purchase a single rack space unit that I can put in my rack (I sing and play saxophone and use wireless units and they are in a rack...when I get the motif rack it'll be in there to..._)anyway, did some searching on ebay and only could find units with trs outs...but no rack mounts w/ xlr outs. Any ideas. I could by an adapter plug...but playing live and hooking up fast and tearing down fast...those adapters always seem to get lost...please help.

Hey SWebb...just curious. What group do you play with? I saw Joe Metzga a month ago, and there was a sax player there (playing keys as well) who SMOKED! Was that you? If so, I think you just did some recording at a studio my good friend, Steve Nelson, owns.

 

I'm the keyboard player for JammSammich...let me know who you are!

 

See ya!

Chek out a Yamaha MV802 keyboard mixer.

It's a great sounding and cheap rackmount mixer that can usually be found on ebay.

I use one for my DAW setup.

Its 2U and I don't think the line ins are balanced.

 

I have a Rolls 6 line stereo mixer. Its 1U and has a monitor send and an effects send/receive that I use for my wah pedal. Moved to this from an MV802 a couple of years ago.

The Yamaha MG16-6FX and MG16, MG12 are all excelelnt mixers.

 

The MG16-6FX has built in FX... I've been using this with my 600W HK Audio PA, and I've no complaints... just unbelievable value for money.

 

I had a SECK 24:2 in the 80s and that was around £1000 or so, this £225 Yamaha kicks its arse in so many ways. http://image.www.rakuten.co.jp/e-gakkinet/img1007458816.jpeg

I'm still using an M-120 too. Single rack space, two sends, internal power supply, extremely clean (for live use at least), balanced outs, and (very important) a separate 'monitor return' circuit with its own level control. Oh, and hedadphone out with separate volume control. It has all I need for live use, no need to change for something more current. :)

Thanks everyone....i am researching the mv-802 and have also looked at the eurorack. I am also looking at the Alesis MultiMix 12R Mixer.

Steve...I am the lead singer for a country/southern rock band called Hazzard County. I also play keys,sax, and acoustic with them...I was with them for a few years, then quit and recently rejoined the group after the summer. I teach piano, saxophone, and voice lessons at Don's Musicland. I know of Joe Metzka, but have never played music with him. Hope to meet you sometime.
