Now bear with me here... Im probably hoping for something that doesnt exist but here goes...

What I'm after is a small mixer with at least 2 x XLR inputs, USB interface and an AUX control for foldback. I already have an Allen & Heath ZED60-10FX and it's awesome for my larger shows where I need to have more than just vocals in the mix but most of the time we do shows where only the vox need to be amplified as the drums and amps are more than loud enough (usually way too fkn loud he he) and space is very limited. For those gigs I only use two powered speakers. One for front of house and one for foldback. I prefer to have control over the foldback separate to the main mix...

The Allen & Heath normally stays in its case so i want to get this smaller mixer to use for smaller gigs and in my studio hence the USB. For the kind of recording I do I never need more than one input at a time so it doesnt have to be too special - just need to get signal into the pooter. It'll also be used for my partners singing lessons...

Any recommendations?

Checkout the soundcraft UI12. Use your iPad/phone onstage.

The Soundcraft UI12 and UI16 are great.
Also Mackie have just released these little digital mixers:

Woah! That Mackie looks like a great idea!
The Soundcraft stuff would be good too - it'd be nice to be able to get off stage to make sure the mix is working ..,.

Thanks gang!

We've got both the Mackies and Soundcraft uI's in stock at Pony Music and if you want to demo either let me know.
Cheers
