I've been living in my own studio for a long time now, so the toaster is wired in to the mixer and everything is nice and convenient. Got together with some nice guys last night and I may be heading for a new band thing, which means unharnessing the toaster from the studio, going to rehearsal, coming home, rewiring the toaster. I'm thinking it might be worth buying a stage and selling the remote for the toaster. That way the toaster can live in the studio and the stage can just stay in the travel kit.
There were some teething pains (faulty knobs, etc.) when the Stage was first released, but I'm assuming the quality issues are sorted out by now (please let me know if that's not the case). I'm sure many of you have done something similar, moving from the rack / toaster to the stage for rehearsals and gigs. Are there any problems, required tweaks, caveats or other considerations I should know about before making the decision to move my non-studio scenarios to a Stage instead of the Toaster / remote?
I would greatly value any thoughts you might have on this. Plus, you know, if anyone wants to lend me some of their GAS medication to just get over it all, that would probably be okay, too. I'm not sure how much this is a "need" and just a "shiny new toy" thing.
