  • Rack-mount mixer

    I'm currently using up 8 channels on my Mackie board (TD-8, TD-6, D-4, effects--all in stereo) and I want to get that down to 2 channels by way of a submixer. The catch is that I want the mixer in question to be a 1- to 2-space rack-mountable model with a standard 19" width, built-in rack ears, etc. Affordability is also important. The Roland VM-3100 Pro is going for about $350.00 now, so I would say that that's pretty much my price range. The Roland is a tabletop model, however, and that's something I want to avoid if at all possible. Having the TD-8 and the TD-6 hanging out there in the open is enough of a hassle as it is! The mixer need only contain 1/4" ins and outs (preferably balanced), as I don't need it for any mics.

    Do any of you guys out there have any recommendations, or, better yet, can you give any feedback on models that you personally have used and would recommend to others?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mick

        Rolls RM65 MixMax 6x4. 6 XLR ins w/ phantom power, 6 1/4" ins, basic tone control. Practical little mixer, and only 1 rackspace. Goes for about $250

          Mackie Mackie Mackie. I have a Rolls and it's not great, it makes everything I run through it sound thin.

            What Mackie model do you have? I'm looking into the 1402 VLZ. Do you know what the difference is between the Micro, the regular VLZ, and the VLZ-Pro? I see them on ebay and can't figure out the difference.

              Good to know, I've never tried it, but the one rackspace construction may make it a viable contender for some. If it sounded good, that is.

              Mackie it is!

                The Mackie VLZ Pro series are equipped with the newer and even better XDR (or is it XHR?) pre-amps.
