    Default Help Me Complete My Set-Up!

    Sup DJTechTools,

    Couple months ago I was a newbie asking some amateur questions.

    After I was confident I could learn to mix live (I had been into studio mixing previous) I got a VCI-100 and Presonus Firebox and got to mixing!

    Now, I have reached a point where I have done small house parties and such and skill-wise I think I am ready to go for paid live venues.

    I plan on buying a pair of Peavy 215's and a Peavey 118 Subwoofer!

    I have two questions!

    1. What amp would you guys recommend. I have heard some good things about QSC's. Obviously it/they need to be able to power the above with a bit of headroom. My price range is about $200-450

    2. I have reached a point where the VCI-100 is a big inadequate for me. I am in need of an external mixer to perhaps hook up another VCI-100. Can you recommend a decent external mixer for me to hook up some external sound FX mixers, and perhaps a midi control pad and another VCI-100!

    Thanks!

    Just to be clear, you want an external mixer, and a pad controller to complement your VCI-100?
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Well, an external mixer is a definate yes. As to whether I want to hook up a pad controller whatever it be, thats a maybe.

    Simply, I just want the ability to expand. Whether it be a keyboard, a controller or some FX modules.

    i just have a small question.. why would you want a full-on external mixer instead of using your VCI's?

    such a noob question i know, but just curious

    I am not sure you would call it a "full-on" external mixer.

    I am talking about a small DJ mixer. Not a board like you would find at a Club.

    The reason I want to have an external mixer rather then use internal mixxing via VCI-100 is because I would like some additions to my set-up's output.
