Drop the driverack with the M7. You get graphic eqs, and you can individually delay the outputs in feet or seconds. Either that or get a DME Satellite unit and program all of the graphics, comp/limiters, etc in to that, and run it off of a cobranet card.Thanks. I think we will have room in the budget for it. I'm also planning on a DBX Driverack for delays, and EQ on the speakers-- if only there were speakers for the room. It's a thrust stage, and there's a small balcony overhang in the center, and on each side. I'm thinking of putting 2 speakers under the center balcony, 2 above it, and one below each side balcony for fill there. There's also a pit (that's not really in a pit) in front of the thrust. I'm still thinking about a way to cover the seating areas that aren't under a balcony. I'm also planning on contacting a few companies in NY about demoing the M7.
Then wait for the feedback to blow some horns.Another feature of the M7 in a student application is user profiles. You can create a usb jump drive "key" with a user profile allowing novice users access only to parameters that you choose. So if you have very new operater and you don't want them to access EQ's for example, simply lock the parameter.
