In reference to the sound project that we've been talking about, how would suggest I output sound to amp from the Alesis. There is 2 ways. 1) I can do Main Outs, however, there is a left and a right channel (does this mean that each is just a TS?) and I don't want to run TWO lines. PLUS, I'm going to mixdown to mono anyways before going into the amp because I want the same sound to be output from both speakers, so 2) wouldn't it make more sense to use the 2-track tape output (RCA), mix it down to mono to run the line (line will be about 125-150 feet) and then go into the amp? I think option 2 is probably more cost effective if the quality will be the same. I guess, I've got tons of RCA connector laying around, whereas I'd have to buy the TS or TRS connectors. Plus, the AMP
(GX3) has RCA inputs, so....
Oooh. Forgot to mention, Remeniz. There is an interesting development to this. I guess our church would also like to output sound to a speaker in the basement and one or two in a main floor room, IF POSSIBLE (not a priority). I would need to split the output from the mixer. Would their be quality loss with an RCA splitter? Or would I want to manually split the lines? I would think that I would have to use small powered speakers in the locations listed (you know, similar to studio monitors, I suppose...nothing extravagant and we can't break the bank. They'd need to be like $50 a piece to make this feasible). Can this happen or not really? We don't have much of a budget. Argh.
What's the longest length VGA cable you can run? You think I'd get a lot of signal loss/distortion with a 30 footer or so? Haven't measured what I'm doing yet, so that's a guestimate.
