If youíre looking for something small, light weight and always with you, Iíve controlled my XR18 running the Linux software on a Raspberry Pi. Here is a kit that comes with almost everything youíll need including a 7 inch touchscreen monitor. Add a mouse and you have a wired solution that can be mounted inside a case lid.

Edited to fix the link.

I was going to say, the Pyle stuff is about as good as it comes; without the price tag. I would invest in multiples simply because of how inexpensive they are. If one does eat it, you would at least have a backup. I own 2 and they have been kicking butt for me for about 3 years!!!! Sound amazing, and the reliability hasn't been an issue for me. A way undervalued brand for some of their stuff. Shure, Countryman and some others should take heed, you can no longer convince me that a $300+ mic is better than than this $25 gem........

Take your old Toshiba and install a lite version of Linux on it, such as lubuntu, and it will be rock solid and run edit no problem. It is very resource friendly software that will run on just about anything.

I'll look into that David - thanks.

Hi Debbie,

> I have been using a Shure SM35 headset mic for the background vocals for about 3 years and I have been happy with it for the most part ( I mix sound, run lights and sing backing harmonies from the audience).

Are you using IEMs when you are out in the audience?

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

When I first started singing this way I tried using a wireless pack with in ear earphones but I found that it prevented me from being able to do what I considered my main job - mix the band.
I considered using over ear headphones too so I could put them on and take them off when needed but it was all too awkward to mess with - mixing on one tablet, controlling lights on another, a headset mic on my head and a wireless pack on my belt.
So in the end, I just went for it and the PA is my monitor.
It means the guys in the band have some latency to get used to and I can never hear 'more me' ( sometimes harder to pitch)... and once in a while we get a tiny bit of feedback if I am too close to the speakers but in the end it works. Probably because I sang in bands for many years and in the early days we didn't use monitors- I just had to rely on what I could from the reflections off the walls ( yeah - it was a long time ago)
So we get good results overall and it is always a talking point for members of the audience.

The Shure PA821A is known to be rather un-Shurelike as far as reliability goes, and I've seen images here on PSW of much weird intermod from a bad combiner. You might try using your TTi to verify that all the inputs on the PA821A are indeed working correctly.

Hi LeVan,

You can download most of the various mixer apps and try them off-line.

Take a look at the Mackie DL1608. 
Very fast and easy to get around on.

Good health,  Weogo


Are there any other small format digital mixers that are similar in size and function to a 16.0.2?  I know about the XR16 and XR18 and also about the Ui's from Soundcraft.  I was wondering about a small format board with a control surface other than a tablet.

Yes - that is the best solution of course. However, I really do not want to take my good laptop to shows with me on top of everything else I carry. It is just one more thing that can go missing, get broken etc.
I do have an old Toshiba that has been through 2 batteries - not sure what platform it is operating on but I can check. Probably too old for the X air app.....

I have both off the iNuke models you mention. They have both been solid performers. The DSP is useful and easy to manipulate. They run surprisingly cool.

The NU6000dsp is a much better sub amp than the PLX3402 imo.

I now have a second client asking about a test that could use my big bug zapper. Let's see: 5,000 volts, 10,000 joules and a few thousand peak amperes. Oh baby!
