anyone run direct into the board for gigs?
We are thinking about going to all direct inject to the board (bass, acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, bouzouki, fiddle, electric guitar for the most part.) to make touring easier. it's a right bitch to coordinate everything for a week or two in Hawaii, Japan, Oz, etc. and the current thought is if we could do everything direct we would be able to drag along 99% of what we need on stage and just plug into the mains at the venue. sounds nice on paper but I'm kinda fond of my JM > 62 tremolux set up.(or other fender sparkly clean amp if needed.) I am reluctant to sound like mud in order to streamline the stage set up. Since we are already running Ipads for in-ears, set lists, etc. it won't be an issue to run the board from the Ipads as well.
so is anyone running direct with good results?
