    Yes, I own a 1404 which I've had for about 15 years. Excellent gear and priced competitively. Other than that, no opinion. LOL

    I like that set-up Bish. Nice and compact.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Thank you, sir. It was my on stage monitor rig when I used Roland electronics about 15 years ago. Now it's my home P/A system and rehearsal rig.

    I've been looking into those. Seems like an economical way to make the transition from analog. Plus it's got all the effects and 6 busses for monitors. How do you like it so far? Are you using the Apple or Android app? How's the learning curve?

    I have a Behringer XENYX 1204 USB. It only has 4 lines in so I'm getting something with 8 lines in and am probably going to sell this. I've had it for about 4 years but I doubt that it's been used for more than 4 hours.

    it makes zero sense to buy a mixing desk for recording in 2017

    otherwise for live work mackie make the best priced desk IMHO ...cant go wrong with the VLZ4 series , i use a VLZ3 in my teaching room , solid and reliable

    Very happy with it so far. Learning curve is not too steep. Still grasping all that it can do. Using the Apple interface. I'd highly recommend it. I'd take a look at the QSC TouchMix 8 and 16 too.

    Rick, take a look at the QSC TouchMix 8 or 16.

    This is what I bought. It got very good reviews and maybe now I can get a cover done.



    Probably going to sell this, unless I can find a way to loop them together before and after the laptop and get the music up and lined up with the sound.

    With today's technology and "give away" pricing I don't think I'd go analog. Some people I know swear by them though. Guess it's what you get used to.

    I can attest to the solidarity and transparency of Mackie mixing desks. Extremely good bang for the buck IMO.
