: I'm a dope when it comes to electronics. My
: marching field PA features a Mackey DL1608
: mixer that is controlled via iPad digital
: interface, which I HATE.
: IMO, this setup has no business in a
: marching band. It is a virtual display, so
: no tactile physical faders, just touchscreen
: faders on the iPad screen. Very difficult to
: see in bright sunlight marching contests,
: plus the damned iPad *AT UIL* insisted on
: updating its software!! Right when we were
: starting the show. Had to put it on Airplane
: mode finally to get it to shut up and work.
: I've had enough! Can you folks kindly
: recommend what mixer I should be replacing
: this with? Mine is a 16-channel unpowered I
: guess, since we have a Poweramp to use in
: conjunction with it.
: My front ensemble is 2 marimbas, 1 vibes, 2
: synths, sometimes a live mic for
: instrumentalists, and I anticipate that
: group growing in the future, perhaps adding
: another marimba and another vibes.
: Would really appreciate your gearhead
