Which Mixer / How many channels do I need
I am starting out to help some friends that have formed a band. Their Setup so far is, 2mics, Lead and Backing Singer, Acoustic Guitar with jack output to Amp, and Keyboard with mono Jack output to Amp (thats what we use at present, stereo output is available). and 2 x 300 watt speakers.
I want to add an Audio Power mixer which will allow the addition of 2 stage monitors and another 2 mics in time.
Any recomendations? How many channels do I need etc to allow me to use the present equipment and then add as time and money allows. Thank you in advance.
