Desktop portable mixer with Deluge
nikpalmer VancouverBeta Tester Posts: 11
So I have a great Tascam 24 mixer but it's huge and in the basement studio. If I want to setup the Deluge on my dining table with let's say a Reface, a stereo delay pedal, a stereo reverb pedal, maybe a MicroFreak or something small. And I want the deluge to be recording loops/layers and maybe providing drums/samples Then what type of mixer am I going to need to bring that together that is pretty portable? It's going to go out to headphones only.
Check out 1010 blue box.
Another option might be the Keith McMillen K-Mix - it has 8 ins/10 outs with flexible AUX routing and some internal DSP-based EQ and effects. It can also act as a USB interface, which is why I had bought one, but the Windows drivers are pretty bad (KMI obviously prefers macOS to Windows based on the quality differential in their software offerings). I ended up selling my K-Mix, but I definitely miss its portability and all-digital-but-still-physical user interface.
I use a Bluebox with my Deluge! Feel free to ask me anything
That list of gear sounds great with this setup, here's one way it could work:
Reface, Microfreak, Deluge, Delay, Reverb into 5 of the inputs (you can choose between mono/stereo)
Delay/reverb being fed from OUT2/CUE stereo outputs
OUT1 is your mains, with internal delay, reverb and compressor
Depending on how important delay and reverb are, you could always use the internal ones. Each input gets a dedicated 4-band EQ plus there's an EQ for the Main out.
Just droppin this link here for peeps in general as these are great, hi-quality and super portable little mixers, and summers (albeit mostly mono):
