Re: Raxxess Converta Rack vs. ???
Hello to all,
I misread this:

As "...I was summarily axed."
I think that firing yourself for not being able to hump your rack is a
little harsh no? Though I've come close to it myself several times.

So true! I've struggled with this a lot over the last year. The main
problem hinged on finding a mixer that had (at least some of) the
flexibility that I need, but is smaller and lighter than the mackie
1604 I was hoofing around. I like to be able to effect my loops, loop
my effects, etc etc. I used to use a big cube-shaped rig like the
Raxxess thing mentioned. Too big, too heavy, and I got rid of an old
station wagon for a small car, so impractical. I hate having to spend
a lot of time setting up and tearing down before and after gigs
(especially, as mentioned, during a festival). I found the Samson 2404
on Ebay and (aside from some hum - I'm working on it) I love it! Now I
have a custom-made shallow 12 space flight case that's still too heavy,
but it fits the mixer and my loopers and effects and preamp. And it
fits in the trunk of our Prius! Yay!
Good luck in your search. Don't forget that, given that we all do our
work/play differently, a custom made rack might be the thing. But do
plan for a bit of expansion, at least.
