Subject: RE: Tech: amplifying acoustic ceilidh bands
If you are mixing acoustic with D I , DONT let any of the D I'd people anywhere near the controls as they always tend to turn themselves up too much - some one with a good ear should do all the mixing . Ideally , every one should be D I'd and running trough a mixer ,though with as many musos as Les is talking about that can be difficult AND expensive .
At a push , a collection of smallish mixers (Maplins do a Four channel for less than 100) into a decent sized mixer could work , and make a note as to settings which suit instruments so that you are not mixing from scratch for every gig .
