Yes it can definitely be done, IIRC instead of doing it from the patch screen, go to the preamp tab in the processing section for each channel and choose the input in the drop down there.
Thanks!
Imagine...patching inputs is not done in the "patch" screen :o
Can't seem to do it in offline editor but will try on console next time.

Plug the guitar into the DI without pedals.
If it sounds good, it's not your problem.
Remind the performer you are on a schedule and need to move on.

Yup.

I always want a split before the pedal board.

It depends on what you call "small, portable"

Is that the total size/weight?  Or individual boxes?

The truck only cares about cubic volume and weight-not how many boxes there are.

Something two people with a van can deploy without the use of forklift :-)

Not trying to negate the benefit of big point source boxes, just from a small operator point of view several smaller boxes are easier to deploy then one huge box.

Just did a gig with an AH GLD 80.
Certainly not like a QU and it took a bit of figuring out. Took a while to discover the drag and drop custom control page configuration but i like it.
One thing I could not work out was how to get the same input to show up on 2 different channels.
EG...I want my playback computer to come in on channel 41 and 42 to be treated separately.
When assigning input 41 to channel 42, I loose input 41 to channel 41.
Can this be done?

The 728s do not have front panel speakon connectors. :( At least, all of my old ones don't. I have 6 more en route from JBL; maybe they've added it. That'd be cool.... but I doubt they would. I'll let you know after I pick them up tomorrow!

Just to clarify, when I said "does it have it built in" what I was more meaning was the processor settings for reversing the middle sub and making the stack cardioid.

In the set up you're describing, there are two delays to calculate. The first one is within each stack, so that the reversed sub in your stack of 3 has the correct phase/delay settings to make that single stack cardioid.  Obviously just turning the sub around doesn't just do it on it's own, it needs processed differently too.

Then the once you have each individual stack sorted and processed accordingly to make one cardioid block, you then have another set of delays to consider in terms of the overall array: how far you want to space each stack out, and if some delay is then needed as you work your way out from the centre to "virtually curve" the array and spread the sub out around the venue (because, as you space the stacks and widen the group, the sub will tend to form a directional beam down the middle of the room).

Now from reading your initial post, I assumed that you had the first part sorted, and either already knew the correct processor settings for the middle/reversed sub in each stack to make it cardioid, or that the amp/processor has it saved as a preset?

Therefore my advice was more for the second set of delays needed, the virtual ark and the spacing of the stacks.

Again software is the best way to visualise how it works. Create your stacks in the software and try spacing them out and moving them together again, observe the change in the sound. You'll note that the subs will still keep a fairly wide dispersion at the lowest frequencies (would be omnidirectional if not for your cardioid stacks negating some of that), but that as you increase frequency, bigger spacing will make the sub more directional, focusing it down the centre of the room.

Higher up in the sub's range again, if the spacing is big enough, you'll see a point where the spacing is bigger than the distance needed for the wavelengths to couple effectively and they begin to act as 4 individual stacks rather than one array.

Then, by delaying the outer stacks, you can go a little towards reversing that "focusing" of the sub and curve it back out again.


As was said, this won't be exactly applicable to your subs (unless JBL has a model for hat sub in Ease Focus). But by using something similar (another model of double 18 reflex) you'll get a rough starting place for what spacing and delay times might work. You can then make adjustments on the day to get to what you're wanting.

especially if time is against you, the best you can do is be diplomatic and hustle things along.  The hostile posts from the other posters are disappointing

You always need to maintain a professional attitude, absolutely.
But sometimes enough is enough - And if the said artist kept refusing to bypass her pedals for 20 minutes straight, instead going on to brag about her experience "running sound" thinking she's a know-it-all, whilst eating up over half an hour of other bands' performance time, diplomacy has to be said aside for a moment.

The way I see it:
- She's got no respect for you & your work (as a volunteer, even!!!)
- She's not interested in how she sounds (Which you're there to help her with) but rather how she's gonna make herself appear as the ultimate soundguy/musician/genius/all-in-one or whatever
- She doesn't give a damn about others and the fact that she is eating up everyone's performance time.

It's not her fault though, someone should've stopped her. Sometimes you just NEED to move on, you don't have time to keep arguing with a "know-it-all". If the only way to do that is to mute her, then that's what you'll have to do.
I second what Keith said ^

We'll all have come across poor sources from time to time, and it's often a case of damage limitation.

Acoustic guitars can be the quickest (turn up the gain and all is well) or the worst (nothing you can do makes it sound good).  In the latter case, especially if time is against you, the best you can do is be diplomatic and hustle things along.  The hostile posts from the other posters are disappointing - keep the criticism internal and help things along with a big confident smile, whatever it sounds like.

One guy I've dealt with a few times has some extremely high end guitars along with expensive pickups and expensive pedals.  Unfortunately, it all sounded dreadful.  Much better with all his exotic modelling pre-amps bypassed, but still not fabulous.  Turns out he tends to self op with a Bose L1 system - I suspect he's spent a lot of time matching everything up, but that nothing works well away from his system.

Slight topic swerve but I've found that people who use the internetcentric TL;DR should really use TLTR for too lazy to read.
They are the ones who only want concise validation of their point of view, none of this nonsense of facts and reality.
