GASing so hard for one of those KMixes. Last night I set up a rig with 4 parallel chains, all synced via CV or MIDI (Organelle, Volca FM, Volca Beats, and guitar). I routed the first three through my audio interface and the guitar through my amp. It worked alright, but any discrepancy in levels is a pain to manage with the 18i20 interface. I was thinking about it and the KMix seems to be the perfect solution - visual readout of levels, built-in per-channel limiter, on-the-fly touch-to-change level controls, serves as an interface so I can still record. It wouldn't replace my 18i20 because I still need 8 XLR inputs for tracking full bands/doing studio work, but it seems like it'd be a great on-the-go interface on top of just being a great mixer. Does anyone wanna talk me down from this? Is there a cheaper solution?
And secondly, I have it pulled up on Sweetwater and I see it's qualified for 48-month 0% financing ($13/mo!!!!) Has anyone here done this? I've got quite a bit of money to pay off on my Paypal credit, but I do that about $200-300 at a time at the beginning of each month, so I figure $13/mo won't even really be noticeable & this mixer seems like an ideal solution to solve what is otherwise a clunky problem. Basically I wanna know if I can guarantee $13/mo, will I: 1) Definitely not spend (much) more than the full price - I see they round dollar amounts but that's relatively trivial, 2) Be able to maybe make a lump-sum payment should I come into some money (like, pay $300 off one month to get ahead), and 3) Get this mixer when I order it (ie, not layaway)?
