Re: EV elx200-12sp under Yamaha dxr8, thoughts?

Any reason why you wouldn't just go easy and get the Yamaha DXS12?

Heavier, and bigger, but better specs on paper. Not speaking from experience.

The EVs are diddy, but I suspect the DXS12 would have more headroom and extension. Depends, maybe, on how hard you want to be able to push this system.

Re: Keyboard EQ

practices are only 10 minutes our Pianist can be a nightmare when things change without giving her the heads up. You indicate two potential root causes there. To be fair, any decent musician will get hacked off if you change their monitor mix once set-up. But, if their mix is pre EQ, then you can p...

Re: Behringer FBQ1000

An automated feedback destroyer - sounds brilliant, right? Sounds too good to be true, right? As many people have discovered over the years, it is indeed too good to be true - if that wasn't the case, we'd all be using them. Save your pennies. And, while you're about it, maybe just one post on the s...

Re: RCF M18, Zoom L20R, or something else?

MarkOne wrote: Wed May 25, 2022 11:28 pm Yes, the XR18 was my first thought, but due to chip shortages, the chances of anyone getting stock before the gigs is pretty much zero. Some retailers are quoting November

To be fair, I think you'll find the same supply issues across the board.

Re: RCF M18, Zoom L20R, or something else?

The M18 never seemed to hit it off, a bit too late to the party, and a bit overpriced, with no great differentiators. The Zoom mixers are a bit toytown. At the budget end, the XR18 is a screaming bargain that does a great job live, and will give you the 16 in/16 out interface you also want. I'm shoc...

Re: X32: DI Box OUT to Mic In or AUX In?

While the same questions keep being asked again and again, the real tragedy about threads like this is they show the lack of initiative just to try things out and learn from experience. It's all very well to learn the theory of how DIs work, but why not just try plugging the output of your DI into t...

Re: Behringer Xenyx 502usb line out to PA system query

Hi Hugh, thanks very much for your helpful reply. The PA system has two speakers, does that presumably mean it is stereo, or could it be two mono speakers? No way of knowing if it's stereo or mono without checking/asking. I wondered if by using just one 1/4 inch to XLR cable from one of the line ou...

Re: A&H SQ5 - Patching the LR Mix to a 2nd AUX

I just can't figure out in the output assignment how to patch the main mix to an aux as well as the LR outputs, anyone with more brainpower than me (not hard!) know if I can do this? Three options: 1 - Keeping it really simple. Go to the IO Patching tab, Outputs, Mix Out. For Main LR L (or R - you ...

Re: Switch from analogue to digital mixer

A&H SQ5, and honestly I can't imagine going back, setting up monitor mixes is a breeze, having visual feedback on the EQs is such a bonus, routing flexibility is amazing, and OLED scribble strips which I can colour code make navigation so easy. I have to point out that the scribble strips on th...

Re: Switch from analogue to digital mixer

Any tips how to switch from analogue mixer to digital? In my case i think i will hate the most the layers… you cant have everything in one row you have to go from layer to layer :( Just take time to get familiar with your mixer. Fortunately, these days, you can do a lot of this without even making ...

Re: Lexicon MX400XL vs Digital Mixer Reverb

If it were just for live use, then 100% forget about it. One of the real joys about these surface-less mixers is that they're compact and you can plonk them anywhere. A single 1U device makes the package much more unweildy, not to mention vulnerable. Don't forget you'd also be using up mixer I/O to ...

Re: Asking musicians to please turn down

Arpangel wrote: Sat Feb 19, 2022 7:41 am Amateur musicians are often guilty of this, session players, professionals, are prepared for a situation, and have more experience, they don’t care being told to turn down, they’ll still get the sound.

And that's why the amateurs remain amateurs and the pros carry on getting paid.
