Anyone want to suggest a replacement? I've been using a Line6 X3 bean as my main preamp/mixer for my vocals and acoustic. It is now changing parameters by itself and is time for a replacement... (yes I could do a "reflash" and restore the programs for the umpteenth time on yet ANOTHER Line6 piece , or I could just go get something that isn't a toy).
The reasons I like using it and what I need in a replacement are :
~ 3 lines in (bal. vocal, unbal guitar, unbal loops)
~ "channel" for vocals has : preamp, compression, delay, verb, eq
~ sub mixes out (mono is fine) into the house system or my powered speakers
sounds like I just need a mixer but there's always some effect that is missing in a mixer that is 4 to 6 channels.. I don't want to get into an outboard unit for compression or delay ~ I want it to be small... all of my production (except speakers and power) fits into a briefcase. So the "mixer" can be virtual or digital as well (which might also fall under the "toy" category as well...not sure) ...
I'm using an Iphone for drum loops and I'm using an Ipad (for lyrics only), in other words I do have the port available on the Ipad for an Irig application. I'm gonna do some searches here and elsewhere, in the meantime: fire away
No announcement yet.
