great small mixer? approx - 12"x12" - 30cm x 30cm -

I'm looking for a good small mixer for live so I want it to be small - to fit in a backpack. 4 channels is probably fine - 8 is better. I know the Mackie VLZ3 fits this criteria, but I wouldn't mind something a little higher end. Any ideas?

Re: Edirol Interfaces?

Thanks for the response. I wouldn't be using it for recording, just for live - so reliability is the main factor. I don't often hear people mention Edirol - I don't know why, but people also don't bitch about them too much either.

Re: Bags for APC

Namba Bags makes a bakcpack that fits my APC, my 13 inch macbook (I'm sure it could fit a 15" too, maybe not a 17" though) headphones, cables, a motu 828 (19" rack size). http://nambagear.com/big-namba-studio-backpack/ I'm not crazy about the looks, but I think it looks less weird in person. I'm pla...

Edirol Interfaces?

Anybody have any experience with these? I've been thinking about getting one. I like the size - the features, namely the FA-101. I own a couple of Edirol pieces and I've always loved Roland products. I have no experience with their audio interfaces. Anybody have any feedback? My first thought was ac...

Re: alesis mastercontrol?

Their products are usually crappy too. I wish somebody could make a better version of this - for under $1000.

alesis mastercontrol?

http://www.alesis.com/mastercontrol I'm not sure I could bring myself to spending $900 on anything that says Alesis on it. ...though this is a lot of what I'm looking for - a mixer with multiple firewire i/o - anybody know of any others? under $1000? The new mackie line coming out only has a stereo ...

Re: soundcard/mixer - single unit?

Thanks for the response. I was unaware of that unit. It seems cool, but like a bit more than what I need - I wouldn't mind something smaller, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of options. Can you route seperate outs from Live into the mixers individual channels? It looks like you can, but on ...

soundcard/mixer - single unit?

Anyone have any experience with these? I'm thinking of getting one exclusively for live shows. I'm also looking for one that's somewhat compact - Allen & Heath make some, but they all seem rather large to carry around for live shows. I could probably get away with 4 channels, but I'd rather have 6 o...

Re: Follow action "when clip ends"

wow, I've been going crazy trying to figure out how to do this and I stumbled upon this thread. I guess its impossible. The APC40 has thrusted me into clip world after many years in the other view. This is ridiculous! You mean, you cannot simply launch a clip to the next when it reaches it end? I mu...

Re: Clip Launching Question! Please help!

yes, but what if they are on different tracks? - and I just want to fire the next line? - for the purpose of different plug-ins, sends, etc. I realize I didn't specify that before. Sorry, but thanks for the response anyhow.

Clip Launching Question! Please help!

I'm somewhat new to the clip view, but I've been using Live since Live4. I might just be too used to the arrangement view so this question may be ridiculous or pointless to some. Anyway, here's the question - If I have a long "clip" - a couple of minutes long - Is there a simple way to make it so th...

Re: APC40 footswitch problem

Thanks for the response Agent G. You're right. I should say Expression Pedal - that's what I mean. Reading your post makes me think that maybe the two "Foot Switch" ports on the APC40 (labeled FC1 & FC2) were not at all meant to be used as expression pedals. I hope that's not the case. I can imagine...

APC40 footswitch problem

This seems to be something simple, but maybe its not. I have a footswitch hooked up to the apc40 and I want to use it to control autofilter. The problem is, it only goes from one value directly to another - and doesn't move gradually. I've used this same footswitch to do almost the same exact thing ...

Re: "Soft" case for apc 40 AND a laptop?

I'm somewhat torn between the Namba and the Headliner case. ...but does anybody know which Headliner case fits the APC PLUS a laptop? ....or are there any other suggestions? also, does the Namba look as odd in person?

Re: "Soft" case for apc 40 AND a laptop?

I wonder who else was deterred from the gigskinz dragon. That's a total deal breaker! Is the ableton headliner bag the same as any of their other models? ...since they apparently only made 100. At least it looks like a normal bag - as does the Choroka.
