You could get an LS9 and use the HP8 as a back up Smile

While I have no idea of budget expectations but wonder if there might be any merit is a big and small digital board, perhaps networked together for normal use. If big dog, goes down, small digi still works alone as backup.

I have thought about getting an ls9 and using the hp8 as backup, seriously, but the hp8 is too big to carry as a backup.  You get the funny award tho.

Most of these suggestions seem good, tho I am going to agree with Marty so far, that this is a backup in case the main board goes down and is just needed to make sure the gig goes on.  It may NEVER be used.  When the main board fails, you are looking for a backup that will patch quickly and get the job done. I want the smallest something I can carry to get through a gig in case of catastrophy.  right now thats a 1604 or mix wiz tho rack mount options and small used options are being looked into. An o1v doesnt have 16 mic preamps which I need as a minimum.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.  Im carrying a mackie 32.4 right now, but want something smaller.  This is backing up a crest hp8 so an ls9 would be more expensive than the main board which seems silly.

I would like to own an ls9 for other reasons tho.



Well, the DM1000 has 16 mic and 4 line level as well as a couple digital inputs and is very compact for the features.  I suspect it's more $$$ than you'd like to spend unless you have use for it in other applications.  It can be rack-mounted also.   With a couple of external mic pre's it would funktion as a nice little monitor board too.

I noticed APB high on lot's of peoples lists. Just got one and love it. My Question is why am I the only one that mentions The Venice 160 over the Mix Wiz. I have used both and think the midas sounds better hands down. Just wondering what the forum thinks.
