Since someone mentioned line mixers... Is there an idiot's guide to line mixers online somewhere? For whatever reason, I can never quite wrap my head around how they work, or rather, how they might be used in a looping rig. For example, let's say I've got a mic, a guitar, an f/x processor, and an EDP. If I want to be able to route the mic, guitar, and f/x processor into the EDP at my whim while also routing the mic or guitar into the f/x processor (also at my whim), and have the result come out as a stereo mix (actually, mono would suffice for me at this point), can a line mixer accomplish that? I'd love to not have to lug my Behringer 2642 mixer to these acoustic gigs if I can get by with a single rack-space solution. Cheers, Jon Southwood On 7/6/05, Torstein H.
