  • 8 Channel DI output?

    Hey there! I have a problem. The last few gigs we did I had to mix myself (using the controllers on my Evolution) while playing, because I stupidly thought that the techies would have the facilities to accomodate the 8 unbalanced line outputs from my Delta 1010lt (its patched into my TRS patchbay).

    So I'm trying to think of a solution for our next gig. I could just buy an 8 channel DI box, however, I'd also need to buy 8 more XLR cables, probably quite long ones. It would also mess up my rack because the outputs are on the back and the inputs are on the front (unless I bought a load of cables and wired it into my patchbay, but that would be a bit overcomplicated)

    Can anyone think of a better solution?

    Thanks for your help

    So, you wanted 5 stereo rca > xlr direct boxes? What venue did you possibly assume would have even one?

      The fact that the runs would be long mean you should be sending balanced signals. No way around it, you need 8 channels of DI

      Let the sound you want control your gear selection.
      Let your gear selection control your rack layout.
      The rack never get's a say.
