Re: Need some P.A. advice, mostly for play-along.
you guys all rock. Getting back into music after decades away has left my head spinning wrt technology. If I am getting what you guys are sayinf, for my application, start with a Mackie type mixer. I think this is in line with the original posters intent so don't think I am hijacking the thread.
I have a 7 piece that I want to mic for live performance primarily. The 4 mic arrangment sounds great.
For live then I could either use the mixer as an input to the bands PA or possibly even as the bands mixer.
And for practice etc, I can use the mixer to record myself and a song?
Can I play a song on my computer through Itunes and feed it into the mixer, with drums and then output to Audacity?
