Most small mixers (Yamaha MG10X, Mackie Mix8) have the connectors on top.
I am trying to fit my home studio into a small desk, and it would be nice not to have to leave that much vertical space over the top of the back of mixer. My cabling doesn't change frequently, so quick access is not an issue.
Is anyone aware of a small (5 to 10 channel) mixer with connections on the BACK? Allen and Heath MixWizard lets you rotate the connector panel, but is way bigger than I need or have space for. There are level-only mixers, but I want pan, eq, and at least a few mic channels.
Worst-case, I could use right-angle plugs, but I hate to have to do custom cables for everything.
