  • Looking for a Mixer Recomendation

    I currently have my TM-2 occupying the Audio In on my TD-25 and can't hook-up my iPad. Per Roland's suggestion, I tried a 3.5mm Y-splitter to handle input of the TM-2 along with the iPad. And while both are audible in this configuration, the TM-2's volume drops considerably. when paired with the iPad.

    Roland suggested either resorting to a USB loaded with MP3s (which obviously isn't as user friendly as an iPad) or running all three through a mixer.

    I'm an "at-home" beginner and just need something that will allow me to connect all three devices to my Mackie Thump12 or Headphones. I like the idea of having a Master Volume control like on the "Nady MM-141 4-Channel Mini Mixer" but have read some pretty mixed reviews on it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions / recommendations or thoughts?

    Thanks ahead of time!

    What do you want to spend? There's loads of mixers out there for 50. You just need a six channel one. Don't know where you are so can't give specifics...
    *** Never buy a module without both MIDI IN and OUT! ***
    DTX modules. Roland samplers. Multi12. TrapKat. ControlPad. Wavedrum. Handsonic. Dynacord RhythmStick. MPC. Paiste 2002/Signatures. Cajons. Djembes. Darbuka. Windsynth. MIDI Bass. Loads o' synth modules and FX. And...a ukulele or three.

      For a simple headphone mixer I use this and it is rock solid.

        I was originally wanting to stay between $50-75 USD (or less) if possible.

          Ah, so you're in Trumpland. Loads of choice, Try a Mackie Mix8, for example. Have a nose down here for more inspiration. http://ebay.to/2jyNA4l I've got a Yamaha MW10 that normally lives on my main practice kit (with drums, multipad, sampler, MP3, etc.), and mainly use a bombproof Mackie 1202 that I've had for years for live use. Got a couple of Behringers (cheap, but one's already lost an output channel - read into that what you like!).

            I would spend $100 and get a Yamaha mixer. Lots of headroom and great sounding: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MG06
