    Feedback Prevention

    Could you please explain me how to correctly tune to the room? Is there any method for doing this? Does the frequency for feedback change from rehearsal (empty house) to live concerts on the same room (full house)?

    What sound mixer should I choose

    From what Allen & Heath told me, the software to record the channels are free of charge. I didn't check this, and just assumed it is true. I may later read the several tracks, possibly using the mixer (or ProTools) to record on a CD.

    church is buying a new sound board....need help

    Have you looked at Midas Venice? It is also a great analog mixer, comes with 16, 24 or 32 channels, and has a firewire interface, which will allow you also to connect to a computer without any more cards or special interfaces. The quality of the mixer is excellent.

    Thanks all for you feedback. I finally made the decision and ordered the new sound mixer. I hope it was a good choice. For you guys, let me explain why I chose this: - Has 16+ channels - It is expandable (you buy modules as you grow that extend your basic channels) - Has Scenes and motorized...

    What sound mixer should I choose

    You didn't. When I first bought the Midas mixer, the idea was for my daughter to be the primarily user. And the moment we got it, she told me she couldn't use it unless she had help from someone to carry it. She tells me that most of the concerts she does, people already have all equipment, but...

    What sound mixer should I choose

    Here is another great comment. Thanks for your contribution. This is correct. I believe most sound mixers have the capability to route the sound to the firewire from dry or wet channels. So I didn't think this was an issue. My daughter is a performer, not a sound engineer. They will be...

    Thanks for your feedback. It is good to have this type of reply. But let's go to the point. I was recommended to go with the Midas Venice F24. I still have it with me, but since I have a 30 day money guaranty. I'm going to return it. I weighs 30.5kg / 67.2lbs. So we decided we wanted a...

    What sound mixer should I choose

    Regarding your suggestions, the Mackie does not support 16 track recordings. I could not find if any of your suggestions support saving "scenes". They may support, but I couldn't find this in the overview of the product info. Another thing I don't like about the Mackie is that it requires an...

    What sound mixer should I choose

    Thanks for your information. I know what you are saying, and I have good mics and I'm going to buy more. But that is a different topic. Right now I' m selecting a mixer, not mics.

    What sound mixer should I choose

    Regarding the use for the mixer, it is for other family members too. If you really want to know here are some info. My wife is a professional singer and performs with medieval grous. Her concerts are not amplified but I would like to record her concerts using 16 channels, as her groups don't...

    What sound mixer should I choose

    What You are saying is not true. I know some mixers that cost way above 10k. Midas pro2 is just one example. An Allen & Heath GLD can cost over 15k.
