Thoughts on Soundcraft GigRac 1000
« on: January 05, 2005, 03:06:19 pm »

I'm not really fond of powered anything but this new Gigrac powereed mixer seems to be a great deal for small gigs.  I can't seem to find very many reviews of this product, so I thought I would open it up to the LAB... anyone...anyone....thoughts....

I recommended the box to a singer songwriter friend of mine. Seems perfect for coffee-shop type gigs if there's only 1-3 people in the act... I haven't actually used it, but it's a simple concept at a pretty decent price.

I do some work for a retailer, including the odd "torture test" for their rental department. Their standard unit is a Yamaha EMX-88s (Stereo or Main/Mon, 8xmic, 2x stereo, FX, 2x500W/4-ohms) and we compared the two units. The Yamaha seemed more pleasing to my ears and seemed to have a little more power.

The Soundcraft did have all the "funny-shaped-cool-blue-LED-sex appeal" thing down-pat, but the Yamaha at least follows standard setup and layout - much easier for anyone to figure out in a rush.

I think the Yamaha was a bit cheaper as well - check it out if you have the chance.
