Hello let me begin by introducing myself! I'm josh - I am the head sound tech for Timothy Baptist Church in Muskogee Oklahoma. Ive been doing sound for about 10 years now. Currently run a Midas Verona 480 analog board for the church. I dj on the side and am in the process of getting my own computer business off the ground currently. I am happily married and have a 10 month old son so that's a little about me - here's my question ... We have in the past 6 months taken to iTunes and started podcasting our worship sets and the sermons. Currently we are using my MacBook pro & GarageBand - but we are only using iRig to take a line off one of the groups on the Midas Verona to make our own mix. What I am looking for is some type of USB interface that will give us greater control over our live recording mix. I've been looking at a PreSonus audiobox 1818 as well as a Zoom R24. I know GarageBand only supports 8 channels - but I am in the process of getting pro tools soon. I Have also considered the new line6 Stagescape M20d as well as the PreSonus Studiolive 16 or 24 but both of these will push my budget a bit further than I would like to although it would be a long term investment. So here in lies my issue. What route should we look at or is there something better I've completely missed?
Ethand20 posted a topic in n00bs DiscussionThe Situation: I recently took over running sound at a church in Morgantown, WV. We use a Yamaha LS9 digital mixing console, with 4 mixes for on stage monitors. there are 9 people in the band/praise team. we use QSC amps. the Acoustic, Electric, and Bass Guitarists play through Peavy amps on stage that are Mic'd for the system. there is a Clarinova on stage that is played consistently. we have 1 trumpet player, and 1 Sax/FLute Player. in addition to a drummer, and 3 or 4 vocalists. That sould be about everything, if i've left out any useful info please ask. I've been running sound for about 7 years, but due to the technology and training available I would say i'm still a novice, I only recently started with this board, room and band. The Problem: there are 3 teams that share the stage, and most of the instruments etc, (praise god for digital boards... almost) 2 teams are exactly the same except for the vocalists. I have the same instrument setting for both teams, and have the settings saved in seperate folders not changing much week to week, save minor adjustments. however I am consistently told after service on sunday that the mix was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT and no-one could hear themselves, come practice this problem tends to be isolated to the Winds, and the piano player. this week I took much time in practice and did the "raise your hand if you need more of..." and then mixed and saved the setting. At the end of the night everyone was happy, then come Sunday I was informed that the monitor mix was "horrible" and asked "what happened to all the work we did on the monitors?" I dont understand how this is happening, I am not changing anything after practice, and to my knowledge no one else in the church knows the board well enough to make these changes. is there a plausible explanation, or is everyone but me crazy? or am I crazy?
