I want to build my rig economically, to suit that I play some songs with my electric guitar, others with my midi keyboard, plus effected vocals.
I want to be able to switch and blend between Midi & analog signals, and between PA & amp and cabs on stage. The former is accomplished on the guitar because the GK-2A has a blend switch, and using my stage mixer I can route signals to the main mixer/PA and to my Amp.
We play mostly small-medium venues with typically crappy 12 channel mixers and no sound person, hence that I'm thinking of using the Onyx in my setup to simplify soundcheck and performance.
I have at present the following setup, which is clearly missing some components and I would be interested to have some recommendations:
I clearly need a midi interface, as the Onyx has none. Perhaps I don't even need the Onyx if I remove the MBP/GuitarRig and go hardware only with something like the GR-55. However, I am on a very limited budget and need to produce effects for up to 3 mics, a guitar and a keyboard. The Onyx should provide routing options for me to send signals to both the PA and to the Cabs on stage.
