Originally posted by Joe Hannigan Use the Mackie as the main mixer for everything, including all feeds to the crossover, PA, etc. Take the main outs (stereo, balanced) on the back of your RANE mixer and run it into the last 2 channels (11 and 12) of the Mackie. (The last two faders/four channels are stereo pairs, if I"m not mistaken) They're also balanced, too.The RANE will be a "Sub" mixer, feeding line level out to the line level in on the Mackie's ch 11 and 12. Mackie will be your main feed to the PA, monitors, etc. Unless I missed something in your question, it's pretty easy to do, and makes your signal path nice and orderly.
Originally posted by jpw23 Its easy to put down gear when you may a fatter wallet than someone else..........Spitfire submitted a thread on what mixer to buy in his or her price range some time back and has made an educated decision to buy this equipment......to come in after the fact and then warn someone about the pitfalls of something they have just laid down a lot of money for , is a non productive and sensless act..........be supportive and give advice on how best to use this equipment instead of finding fault. Sorry folks.....sometimes I get on my soapbox about things!
