So I've recently began working for a church and I'm blessed with a chance to upgrade my console. Currently we have on property a Vista S3 and an ETC Insight with Emphasis server. Obviously we want to replace the Insight. We are looking very closely at 3 different desks and I would a 4th to the mix. Just wanted to get your opinions. First the room it would be used for. Currently there are 6 VL 3500 spots, 12 SeaChangers, 6 Robe Color Wash 575s, and 10 Chauvet Colorado Panels. In addition to those we have around 400 conventional stage fixtures and 200 house fixtures. It's a very large room that seats 7,500. We want to increase the number of VL 3500s and LEDs and are picking a desk that will allow this with ease. So our choices. 1. Jands Vista T2 or T4. This is because we already have the S3 so there is no learning curve for programming and can easily teach volunteer board operators. 2.ETC EOS 3. ETC ION. The ION can be expanded to enough DMX channels for us and to me the big plus is I can get expansion packs that will give me faders for subs, which help when something is going on and I'm not there. Someone can just bring up a sub look real easily. Also with either ETC board, my volunteers are familar with the programing and controls. 4. Avolites Diamond or Pearl. I really like Avolite boards and think I could make it work. I program with the keypad not faders but need the ability for subs. I know how to make that work with the Vista series. My question to you guys is which boards would you prefer? We operate with cues and is very theatre like in my programing. Comes from my education. But I also want something I can do on the fly concert stuff with on special events. Thoughts? Opinions?
