I've reprised a long-dormant aspect of my career.. I am again performing as a solo artist with song and D28. My challenge involves the variables on house PAs. No two are alike as to quality of equipment or engineer. So it occurs to me that a simple mixer/EQ combination could be dialed in for one guitar and one voice... balance, tone, reverb, compression, etc.... and simply run into the house board dry and flat. One size fits all. Plenty of mixers, and plenty of exotic EQ devices on the market, but I see nothing in a small and simple four-channel unit which combines the two. Reasonable budget available for the right piece.Anybody have suggestions?
I use a Mackie 802 for this purpose. You could maybe use a Mackie 402 that is even smaller and less expensive.
Thanks, Phil. I'll be heading out tomorrow to check out the 402.
I'd suggest something like the Mackie PROFX8. It's bigger that what you're looking for but it has good eq and some built in fx, but no compression. The smaller mixers have limited eq and no fx... I use the PROFX12 for a pa with powered speakers, I like it for my applications - solo to small group.
Thanks, Tom. Looking at it.
