I'm a new user. I'm the technical director at my high school, where I am the first student technical director with a budget and the key to the auditorium and the the tech booth in the history of the school. I'm currently dealing with a half-power, very lousy lightronics dimming system, and our dimmer racks are currently messing up. I am much better equipped on the sound side, with a Soundcraft Spirit 8-16 console, 8 or so wireless lavs, a wireless handheld, overheads, 5 front-of-house mic inputs, and a full rack of equipment. I'm looking to move to 24 or 32 channels as well as a dbx driverack system, and a new, higher capacity snake to the stage. On the lighting side again, i'm looking for a DMX board WITH AUTOFOLLOW CUES to control our dimmer racks, which should be fixed soon. Then the old board will be used as kind of a desinger's remote or RFU. I just learned the miracles of RGB sidelighting this year, and, as you can tell, I'm very excited about all that I do and push for.
