I just ordered a Phonic Powerpod 740 P.A. system. Now before you go off on me, I got it to use at home. I want to be able to hook up my ipod to it and play along with the music and maybe use a CD player. I'll put a couple links up to show what I got but the 2nd link is Phonics site that shows a close-up of the power mixer. I'm wondering, by looking at the pictures, if I'll be able to hook up the ipod plus use the mic to sing along as I play. I'll be playing through my bass amp. The only other time I'll use this is when our group gets together for practice or at a small gig. By gig I mean just playing at small venues like on the patio for a "small" yard or house party, and then it would be for vocals only. My main use will be for home as I stated earlier.
