    ..run a live session through DAW, everyone DI except for drummer, get the mix set, run it through a PA...
    I would counter.. Every gig I've done inevitably needs dozens of adjustments -from one gig to the next, on the instrument amps and throughout the whole PA side of it.
    If you're doing sound for someone that would be one thing. But doing our own, I want as much quick clear direct access as I can get.
    A digi mixer, ok.
    A DAW for a solo/duet might fly..

    Hmmm. I've never complained about any gig that I could use an elevator (lift). I've schlepped more gear up and down more flights of stairs than I care to think about! However, it did make me think about the gear I was using ... SVTs and 8x10's no more!

    Same here. With what's left of my knees gigs up stairs the Quilter looks pretty good over the Boogie' :>)

    I usually don't as it's always better than stairs but the lift in the original story we nicknamed "The Time Machine" if you get in on a Monday you get out on a Wednesday" Sure adds a lot of time to the load in and out than a ground floor gig.

    Aside from that, how many gigs do you do that have that annoying couple of steps that the road case wheels never seem to be able to get up and down. You would think that when people design a venue they could have thought this out, thank goodness venues are retrofitting wheelchair access ramps.
