I guess I'll try the Rapco device.
I use the Live Control knobs primarily to adjust mic reverb and vocal harmony levels. I'll try experimenting with other settings using the assign button or registrations to call up different assignments.
My approach to the senior shows I do is to keep things simple to minimize setup and takedown, and so I can give maximum attention to the audience. I think the PSRs have great mixers whose mic settings can be tailored for each song via registration memory. For me, that's the way to go. But I much prefer physical knobs to sub menus on a touchscreen, so I'll be excited to try the Rapco gizmo
Have you tried the assignable buttons also?
Thanks, DNJ for your query. I wish there was a button shortcut just for Mic volume, but the best you can do is call up the mic setting page and from there you have to touch the Mic level and adjust, and then you have to exit out of the screen.
So you can
get at the mic volume pretty fast, but it's a little distracting compared to having the up/down buttons on the home screen like the S970 or a physical volume knob like on the Rapco device.
