    Is Anyone ACTUALLY Using Midi Control With Success?

    For our live shows, if there's lighting involved, it's triggered by MTC. An Alesis HD24 which is used for audio playback sends MTC to either a Hog iPC, Strand Rack Palette, or CueServer in the different venues. There are usually no problems, though MTC can hiccup, rarely if ever.

    Wireless What Wireless Do You Use?

    All of our venues use Shure UHF-R. Handhelds are a Beta 87A or SM58, bodypacks are a Beta 53.

    Go wireless or just mic the place up?

    The house system consists of a single ElectroVoice EVI-15. It works very well for our space because it throws a hotter signal towards the back than the front, so no one gets blasted, so to say. I think what I'll do is use two PCC160's evenly spaced out on the stage apron (the rental house only...

    Go wireless or just mic the place up?

    The space is of medium size. It seats around 530 plus a balcony on the second floor of around 50 about 50-60 feet back.

    Go wireless or just mic the place up?

    Here's the story... Our drama group is producing The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940. As of right now, I have no idea how I'm going to pull off sound. I've got lighting down to a science but sound is another story. I've narrowed it down to two options: One, get 10 wireless lapels and work with...

    New System

    That was the only problem I saw. On Rapco's website, it says their power series snakes use 14 guage for the speaker runs. I guess I'll have to see if it works out ok. I just don't see why they didn't ask for any input on my part, seeing as I have done their sound for the past 3 years... Oh well.

    Lack of processing

    I run two wireless shures and a couple SM81's and the EQ is flat. What I mean by "harsh" is the sound can sometimes sound too loud and muddy. This usually happens when a soloist sings in higher octaves or when the choir sings a really dynamic song (soft and then really loud). I know DoD isn't...

    Lack of processing

    The portable system I use has been run with the mix outs from a mackie board to a DoD EQ and from those outputs, they are run through a snake to the powered speakers. Since I began using it last year, I've noticed a lack of processing and/or control in the system, especially when a soloist hits...
