IF HE WORKS ON MACKIES, he could turn it into a very high end, tank built little mixer. I think the url is www.audioupgrades.com.This way you'd be towing the 'sustainable' line AND getting a serious mixer out of the deal.I've been surprised at how reasonable some of his upgrades are.
but I have to say, this mixer has been with me in 15 different countries over ten years
and it's beat to absolute hell, physically................the case it's self is starting to come apart.
Two of the channels are completely dead and my surmise is that I can get a new mixer for less
than the cost of a repair.
I also, would love something that is lighter weight for putting in a suitcase since I seem to be
a virtual luddite and insist on staying with my hardware loopers on tour.
I'll look into it, though. Thanks as always for generously looking after me, my friend!
