There is one thing for certain in this industry. There are different strokes for different folk, and many Sound Mixers have different opinions of the perfect Production Sound Mixing Bag. Having a ton of different options is great for everyone, and Daniel Powell of Mixer Cage is here to talk all about his product and how he designed it.
The Mixer Cage is a very sleek very minimalistic ENG Bag, which changes the concept of having a bag that is fully enclosed. Corporate gigs would bid well with this because it is very clean-looking (as long as you work on cable management – zip ties are your friend). It’s like a rack case for your production sound and studio gear that doesn’t conform to the RU form factor.
Which One is Right For You?
I couldn’t crop Daniels Pup out of the photo, he was too cute.
All the Mixer Cages are interchangeable. Plates are different sizes, which allows you to customize the Mixer Cage to any size you want. Because of these amazing features, no other ENG Sound Bag can ever do that except this guy right here…
