    Small mixer with mono button?

    I use a Numark CD Mix II for ceremonies / back up and it finally broke on me. The right CD side won't cue up, after I load the CD all I hear is slight ticking sound. I have decided to replace it with a small mixer and two MP3 players for ceremony / back up use. I need two mic inputs and two stereo line inputs, one for each MP3 player. I have found a number of small mixers but none seem to have a mono button which I need since I only use one speaker for most ceremonies. Does anyone know of a mixer that would fit the bill? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Regards, Steve

    You could also get an XLR combiner/Splitter, I use one when I'm only running a single speaker.

    Hey Maestro,

    I've run across the same problem, but are you still using MM? Simply download a stereo to mono plug in for MM. Easy! If you can't find a Direct X plugin (I know you can) you can use a VST plug in by downloading a Direct X, VSt wrapper and then download a vst stereo to mono plug in. Still easy!
    I don't have the links but if you need them I'll set you up!

    At one time you posted all the keyboard short cuts to MM do you still have them. Could you post or pm me with them please?

    Here's to a fantastic wedding season! I'm ready baby!
    Thank You

    Thanks Arthur, I'll look into the mono plug-in for MM which I still use. For ceremonies though, I tend not to use a laptop because there are a lot of venues where I have to leave my ceremony set-up unattended while I set up my main system inside and leaving a laptop unattended makes me nervous. I also do not like MM's mix-now feature which I like to use to change tracks during a ceremony. I could go LIVE with the preview output instead of the true live output and just fade out of the current song and click the next track, I suppose...

    I'll email you the shortcuts which, by the way, you should have memorized by now... Mannaggia!

    maestro I see the old radio shack mixers on ebay all the time. these are reliable built like tanks and have low noise plus stereo/mono button. I use rwo for my rental systems and never had any problems with them. plus you can pick one up for 25-50 bucks depending on the seller. I looked at ebay and craigslist. I didnt see any but they do become available. I know I will get flamed for considering this but I gotta go with what has worked for me.

    Thanks guys. I have an old but VERY reliable Gemini mixer that I think I'm going to break out of retirement until I figure out what I want to do...
