My friend and I are going to be starting up a band again soon, and we've already started writing some stuff. We had been constricted on time before due to previous commitments but now we have plenty of time for practicing and writing - generally in the evening/at night when people want to sleep and noise ordinances are in place. I'm guessing what we need is just something we can run our amps into and then headphones out of. Would a small mixer work? Something with at least 4 inputs would be nice so when we pick up our 2nd guitarist and/or vocalist they can join in as well (drums are going to be loud no matter what, guess we'll have to plan around certain times for that). Also having another output for recording the practice would be great too. Any suggestions as to some stuff that would be good?
