Mixing L1 / F1
Hello, my band is just gearing up and we are using my L1 Model II with (2) B1 bass modules and a T1 to handle my vocals and acoustic guitar during practice. I also have a F1 stack, but only one side (collecting dust).
I love the way the L1 sounds, and how easy it is to set up/take down. The F1 stack is fine too, but I need to figure out my next move.
My question is, is there any way to have both systems play nicely together? In other words, can I use what I have and add one more piece of the puzzle to finish our PA? Could add another F1 stack for FOH, but then we'd need the L1 Model II for all monitoring...not good.
In the end we'll have the following (playing country/southern rock):
3 vocal mics
1 acoustic guitar (acoustic electric - not mic'd)
2 electric guitars playing through low volume amps and mic'd
Kick drum mic'd
Bass guitar (PA or not to PA....that is another question)
We're talking typical bar gigs for now....if we take off and start landing better gigs, we can re-visit the needs.
I'm leaning towards selling my F1 stack, and getting another Model II with a B2 and a T4 or T8S...just not sure if that's enough though to put behind the band. Any thoughts on this...how would you route the inputs if doing this?
So many things to consider...hoping for some of your expert advice!
Thanks and God bless.
