I need to be flexible in my live show setup, so that I can have different mixes for various shows. So I'm thinking a piece of gear with multiple outputs like a digital mulitracker or adat would be cool.Some shows will need a full mix, others will need guitar, bass or drums muted, so that I can occasionally have a live guitarist, bassist, drumer, etc. I need to be flexible in my line-up. Problem is, this device needs to be A) portable - the smaller and lighter the better B) able to sync to video somehow maybe via MTC or SMPTE to either DVD or laptop avi's? Any ideas what would be cool for me? I hate the idea of a laptop on stage. It really scares the hell out of me. They're just so, unstable, unrugged and vulnerable to theft. Any suggestions? Things I have considered are: ADAT with smpte - But these are bulky. Any really small alternatives to adat nowadays? . Digital portastudio with stereo out and 2 external sends to give me 4 outputs in all. Any good suggestions for a rugged one with MTC? Rugged laptop, tablet or rack pc I so wish someone made a DVD player with multiple audio outs! What is everyone else using for multiple outs of a live backing track?
