Forgot your password? By Westsailor , May 12, in Bass Guitar. GigRac st. This looks like it would fit the bill. Thing is, while the majority of online reviews are great '9 out of 10 stars' I see enough 'it died in the middle of a gig' type responses to make me gunshy. I've always liked Soundcraft stuff, but that would be a deal killer for me. You might find a couple who love them and had no problem.
Would that make it OK? It says quality. I also have a Yamaha EMXs that has been bullet-proof. That's the problem So maybe it's just them I'd be looking hard at the Mackie S if they weren't discontinued. Same with the GigRacs I don't know about this model, however I have used countless Soundcraft mixers and they always proved very well built, reliable and easy to operate. My main mixer is an e12 that still looks new after several hundred shows in less than ideal conditions. There's a new version called the PPM Pretty much the same thing.
I hear ya and it's something I've had to consider. I've used vertical mixers and they aren't nearly as 'real-time user friendly' as a normal board. But my situation If I could find a 'normal' powered mixer that I thought was bulletproof, would stand up to my environment I'd be a happy camper.
I've checked that one out too. How ya supposed to balance a stereo signal? Am I missing something here? Or for example when I want to run my HarmonyG vocal harmonizer in stereo. I use two different channels, panning one to the left, the other to the right for separation. I just find that odd. Then in a wide room where people sit down as opposed to a pit or bar gig it is useful to recreate some kind of instrument placement in the band.
In a wide room you as a player may want a "trippy" effect, but panning the band mix all over the stereo field means that people in certain areas of the room are getting cheated from the whole sound.
Mixing LS in mono means that the guy in the back right corner has the same opportunity to hear the lead guitarist's amp the same as the gal who is sitting 1 table off to the left almost in front of the lead guitarist. That's a fair enough question. I have only 2 real needs for stereo out: My backing tracks are stereo and and for music during breaks. That requires two additional separate channels, one panned left, one right the main vocal is summed to the center. Now if I were in a whole band, pieces, whatever, stereo wouldn't really be important to me at all.
If I were even an acoustic solo act it wouldn't be important. But as a 'big band dance party' solo act yea, an oxymoron I think it's important to add an additional dimension Otherwise it might as well be Karaoke.
I guess it really boils down to the type of music I play. For example: Leave your Hat On. That song needs to be BIG. That make sense? The weird thing I've found is ALL the powered 'boards' e. Please write up a review after a month or so. I'd be curious to know if someone is as pleased with it as I have been with my PS I promise I will when it arrives and I've used it a few times. Thing is, I won't get it for another month or so since it's coming down with a guy driving down from the states.
Now all I have to do is figure out what speakers to use that are as compact as the mixer. I am seriously running out of room in my forward cabin otherwise known as my 'garage'.

I used a Mackie S for years till I needed more than 8 channels. It's a great powered mixer. I'd advice against vertical mixers. They are a pain in the butt to use. There are many good reasons to do it. The most obvious would be when using stereo effects for the trippy factor. You may also use the PA to play recorded music, in this case stereo is important. Finally, it is a cheap way to get 2 different mono mixes. Great for monitors. Why would you want to run a stereo signal at a live performance?
Posted May 17, Well I'll let ya'll know how it works. I just caved and bought one. Posted May 18, In the meantime, I stumbled across this. Posted May 19, I have the watt version, works nice for me. You should be happy with it, it does a good job for being small.

Rating and Reviews: Soundcraft GigRac 1000ST
Launched to much acclaim in January , the GigRac family of powered mixers for gigging bands and presentation systems has been joined by the most powerful version yet — the stereo GigRac st, which delivers a massive watts output power watts per channel into 4 ohms. The st is slightly higher than its brothers at 5U 8. As with the GigRac and models, there are two output signal paths, one for the main front-of-house output and one for stage monitors. In normal stereo use, the two power amps deliver a full W of power 4 ohms to the Main FOH output, but the st can be switched to provide watts to the Main output and watts to the Monitor outputs.
