WTB Software to control Mackie DX8 Gen 1

I recently got a really good deal on 2, 1st generation Mackie DX8 mixers. They're working great but I'm missing some of the features that are only available in via the software which I can't find anywhere. I've contacted Mackie, but they've been unresponsive. So I'm getting desperate and seeing if a...

OMG - someone is taking my advice? I'm not used to this - even from my students or children!
I always feel the same way anyone listens to my advice. :)

The dragonfly sounds like it might be the ballpark of what I'm looking for. Here is my situation. My main recording setup is at the bass players house, due to more space for tracking. I've been taking the raw tracks and copying them to the laptop to take home and mix on my own time. I really just ne...

Well the insurance is not mandatory. The contract is really just a boiler plate deal. There was also no fee to find out about the insurance :) As far as bullshitting them on the insurance, the venue is thee place to play in our hometown, so I don't want to burn bridges. Anyway, it all worked out. As...

...unless you're making an obscenely exhorbitant amount of money...


This is not the case :) I'm going to get a hold of the venue and ask them if the insurance is mandatory. I post with whatever I find out. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the feedback. This is a one time opening act that is part of a bigger tour. I think I will try black lining out the part about insurance and see what happens. Z-plane mentioned a union or trade group. What do we have in the US for something like that? thanks again,

Liability Insurance for playing shows

Sorry if this isn't the correct forum. My band is playing a show opening for a fairly big headliner. The venue's contract states we need Commercial General Liability insurance, and workers comp insurance. This is the first the band has come across anything like this. Is this standard for larger venu...

RCA jumpers

I have a Tascam MX-80 mixer. It needs these little u shaped RCA jumpers to connect the channel sends to the returns. Anyone know where I can get some of these? Thanks.

Shipping stuf with tubes in it.

I have an old tube real to real recorder that I want to sell on Ebay, and I'm wondering about the tubes getting damaged during shipping. Should I pull the tubes and wrap them up individually? Any Ideas would be great Thanks.

Wireless Monitor systems

I'm looking at getting a wireless monitor system. I've used Shure ones before and they sound nice and seem really solid. I'm wonder if there are any other brands that you folks could recommend that aren't junk. I'm willing to spend $300 on the transmitter, but would like to get one for less, if its ...

If it's really, truly is the best, then what's with the distortion Oh SNAP!!! :) Anyway, I guess by best I meant easiest. The electronics for the cassette player are on one board, and that board has the wires going to the other board with the tuner, and main volume controls. The output on my Zune i...
