Re: Mixing setups for looping

Hi Christian.
By far the coolest rackmount linemixer I've ever come across is the 
Speck xtramix


it's got like 76 inputs, 8busses and a switchable matrix of 8 sends, a 
bit hard to explain. and it's only four units high.

Anyway, it's very high on my wishlist - you know, for when I become a 
millionaire! it's 3,850$ if you buy direct... :(
