I am running out of room on my board and my drummer is getting a new 7-piece drum mic set. Has anyone had experience with a rack line mixer? I have a couple open slots on my rack at the moment. I can pick one up used for under a $100 which is alot cheaper right now than upgrading to a mixer with more channels.
The only drawback I can see would be the lack of mixing capability. There are no hi's/mid's/low's on those things. Would it be worth it to buy a cheaper 8 channel mixer just to have that mixing capability? I don't really want to lug around another mixer whilst a rack line mixer could save space.
