This is a follow up to my thread last month. I ended up getting an 01V, and now I'm trying to make it work. This is a performance of Handel's Messiah, and here's the planned setup:
2 soloist mics
2 choir mics
2 orchestra mics
1 piano mic
Main hall that doesn't need much reinforcement and connected overflow hall that needs some of everything, with delay.
My initial plan was to just route the soloist and piano mics to the main hall mix. After listening to a rehearsal the piano doesn't need anything there and many of the soloists are OK but a couple could use help. But there are a couple numbers where some of the choir could use a boost.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this. Initially I was planning on routing every channel to both layers (using 1-7 and 17-23), sending layer 1 to the stereo bus for the main hall and layer 2 to bus 1 for the overflow. (Or using the user-assignable layer with both the inputs and the bus so I could control that mix with one layer.)
But then I realized that if a soloist needed a boost in one mix they would also need it in the other mix. At first I thought about pairing the channels, but then I realized that would more or less be the same as sending the same input to both mixes. And I thought that if I got the initial overall balance between mixes right, it might work. Is that too crazy/risky?
Or I could route mic 1 to inputs 1&2, mic 2 to inputs 3&4, etc, so I could easily change both mixes at once but still have individual flexibility.
Of course, I can't do both mixes from one location very well so I'm not sure how well this will all work. I was going to try to set up a remote computer but not sure I'll have time.
So what do you recommend? Thanks very much!
