First off, cool vid! Loved it! :)
Right now I'm using a Fender Passport Pro 500. It's an eight-channel mixer with six XLR ins and two stereo channels, the last of which, doubles as a return for the onboard USB flash recorder.
As for monitoring, it doesn't! lol! So if you need a separate monitor mix, forget it and look for something else. :)
I got this PA really as a glorified stereo guitar amplifier for playing small venues / practicing / getting ideas down, so for what I'm wanting it's great, and I can't say enough good about it. :) If you need a real setup with monitoring, then look somewhere else.
Having said that, the USB flash recorder is awesome! YOu can record everything you're doing in real-time to 16 bit / 44.1 KHZ .wav files for editing on your computer. So it's ideal if you'd like to record a performance or save ideas for later composing.
I use the passport mainly for guitar and loopage / digital insanity but it also will do justice to drum machines / synths / other instruments as well.
It has a line out for the stereo mix as well as an output for a sub if you'd like to add one.
Here is a linkie with all the details:
-And a super-cheesie video as well! ;)
Enjoy! and great thread! :)
