Title: Digital playback for live use?
Post by: Duncan on March 18, 2016, 03:11:41 PM
My live setup is often a pretty playback of of materials recorded to tape and digital.  I enjoy having a mix between crusty tape sound and super clean digital. 

Up until now I've just been using a few mp3 players patched into my mixer to take care of the digital side of things but it's becoming a pain in the arse.  The batteries on the players are unreliable and cycling through my samples using a shitty ipod wheel takes longer than I'd like.  Also, it'd be better if I could mix all my samples on a single multitrack device rather than have to use 2 or 3 different devices and channels on a mixer.

I wondered if anyone can recommend me some kind of device (probably a recorder I guess?) which might allow me to achieve this?  The smaller the better; though I do want to be able to mix each track with a knob or fader.  FX aren't important but I suppose I'd try and use them if they happened to be in there.  Main thing is ease of use and good sound quality.  Any suggestions?

Why not one of those Tascam or Zoom digital multitrackers?
There has to be a model that has multiple outputs.
