Hopefully this is the right forum. Seemed appropriate to me. My one band is looking to upgrade our PA, and want to go modular, but we don't know much about mixers. We play rock, blues, funk, and sometimes softer music. We can be loud, but not heavy metal levels. We are typically playing small to medium sized bars and clubs. Band consists of drums, 1 guitar, me on bass and singer (1 or 2 extra vocal mics needed. We also have another guitarist and sax/flute player that play with us a lot of the time. Most of the time, the vocals would be all that's needed on the PA, plus the sax/flute if he's there. Sometimes we may mic the drums, but we rarely need PA support for the guitar or bass (though it'd be nice to run them into a monitor mix through the board). I know a bit about power amps from research while putting together my bass rig. I am thinking a QSC PLX 2402 or something comparable will be the power amp. Please speak up if you think this is not enough power. Can you guys please make some recommendations for a mixer, based on the above?? Important features and why they are needed would be good, and specific models would be very helpful. Keep in mind, the main purpose of this mixer is for playing live with a good sound. It may eventually be used for some recording purpose, but probably not in any kind of professional situation. Much appreciate all of your help.
