    Question (Very) Basic mixer for Hall Microphones - advice needed

    We are looking to replace our current mixer in out hall for something that even a child could work as we've had a lot of issues with our current one being too complex for some of the teachers. Has anyone got any recomendations?

    Our needs:

    1 or 2 XLR mic inputs
    1 computer input

    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the rapid response!

    We have a couple of these in school already in Drama and the sports hall. Unfortunately people still seem to gt these wrong. I want essentially a big button with "ON" written on it. No need for a "OFF" button as no one seems to use these anyway.

    These are exactly the kind of thing I am looking for only with XLR inputs instead of 6.3mm jacks. Thanks.

    I don't think you're going to get such simple ones with XLR inputs. Also, what sort of mic's do you use? Do they require phantom power?

    EDIT: A US site has this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...4_Channel.html

    Thats what I thought the answer may be. We are using Pretty decent mics but I can't remember the make/model right now. They don't need phantom Power. I think I'll just have to replace the cabling under the stage for XLR to 6.3mm jack cables and get one of them small boxs. Unless anyone else has any ideas...

    You could get XLR to 6.3mm adapters like these Djkit 764.587 Adaptor XLR Socket to 6.3mm Mono Plug
