Re: Best high quality,super compact mixer?



I am also using the EPM6. It works very well and is quite versatile; for example there are two auxiliary buses that can be routed pre or post fader - something not so common in a small mixer. I was also considering Allen-Heath ZED 14, but eventually it didn't fit my budget. ZED 14 or 12FX with 6 mono channels should meet the requirements. The smaller 10 and 10FX have different pre-amps, but also two high impedance inputs as a bonus.

Regards,
Michał


Howdy Rick & Loopers all -
My fave rave mixer is the Soundcraft EPM series. I use the EPM6 for my looping gigs, and a Soundcraft Gigrac 1000 for band gigs. Very transparent, rugged construction, versatile, and a great feel to the controls - you roll something back to 10:00, you HEAR it, and you can keep rolling back and HEARING the change.

Hey Rick

Wild idea - Don't know if this is even possible but a cool idea would be to send your broken Mackie to the guy, I think his name is Jim Williams, at Audio Upgrades.  IF HE WORKS ON MACKIES, he could turn it into a very high end, tank built little mixer.  I think the url is www.audioupgrades.com

This way you'd be towing the 'sustainable' line AND getting a serious mixer out of the deal.

I've been surprised at how reasonable some of his upgrades are.

This might be a great suggestion and I thank you for it, Richard, 
but I have to say,  this mixer has been with me  in 15 different countries over ten years
and it's beat to absolute hell, physically................the case it's self is starting to come apart.

Two of the channels are completely dead and my surmise is that I can get a new mixer for less
than the cost of a repair.

I also, would love something that is lighter weight for putting in a suitcase since I seem to be
a virtual luddite and insist on staying with my hardware loopers on tour.

I'll look into it, though.  Thanks as always for generously looking after me, my friend!

yours,  Rick
