Motion Labs "Hibachi" line is very similar to the LEX unit.

"Hibachi" is a curious choice of name for a piece of power distribution equipment that, in general, is expected to get no more than slightly warm to the touch during operation. :) -F

Our pastor likes to have walk-in music playing.  With a digital board, it works very nicely to setup ducking on that music.  This allows the pianist to start playing 5-10 minutes before the service and the occasional pre -service announcement even if the media team is tied up doing last minute service prep.

That is, until the music does not get stopped/turned down.  The ducking releases about the time pastor goes to make opening remarks.

I am using the ST1 inout on our QU-32-so that channel is on the 2nd layer.  I could use a custom layer or move it-that would give a visual reminder that that input is still active.  I think I would prefer something like an obnoxious light to remind us the music is not off (its too easy to think "he shut it off".)

I could design something from scratch-but rather than re-invent the wheel does anyone have a suggestion for an inline signal detector that I can place between the source and the mixer input?

If you shut off the music form the source, any ole VU meter on the input line should do the trick. If you shut it off from the desk you would need some sort of GPO linked to the mute (which the QU doesn't have)...but I will ask...How much are you ducking the music?  Sounds like you are ducking it so it is completely off.  I would suggest a 10-20dB duck, so the music is still there in the background.  But completely out of the way of the message.   Also, you will still hear it playing when your service starts, so you wont forget to kill the tracks.

Edit: Re-reading your post, the 10-20dB duck won't work so well with your pianist playing...

I don't want to sound like some upper crust jackhole here.... but if I had to chose between x32 with an iPad and being stuck behind a Vi5000... I'll chose sonic quality anyday. Besides, my whole point is that the new soundcraft stuff has a lot of ipad functionality. Just so happens that the consoles they don't even support anymore don't. Same way that an ipad 2 can't run the latest iOS.


I'm not trying to make the x32 sound like a dragon slayer here. I agree that if the event requires a top shelf console, by all means use a top shelf console. I'm a big fan of the Vi series. I've loved them since they came out.

But what if the event requires a top shelf console and a remote control? I would choose a CL5 probably. Or the new PM10 maybe. Point is, if you require a remote app, Soundcraft will lose at every segment of the market.

Yabbut, I was controlling my 01v96 with a PC waaaay back in 2009-2010. The X32 came out with a killer remote client suite that even supports Raspberry Pi and midi fader devices. Avid/Digi desks have always had PC remotes. Soundcraft is way behind in this area and needs desperately to catch up.

At our club we have speakers facing in to the dance floor from the rear. As much as I wanted to avoid that it is a necessity in our situation. We are a 300 seat room with low ceilings (10.5'). With a half full room, the main stacks can carry the room but once the place fills up I get about 25' at the most before the mids and highs dissappear,  fills are needed to fill the gap in the highs and putting delay stacks right over people's heads in the middle of the dance floor would blast some people's heads off (Or get knocked down from people's hands) so at the back facing in was the only option to even the sound field.

In small rooms like these with low ceilings, the reverbant sound field dominates and the crowd noise is almost as loud as the music. For our spl, any quieter and the crowd noise dominanates the music, any louder and you would hurts people's ears so our delay stacks continue every 25' or so throughout the bar.

Background info aside, here are my experiences using them:

Phase issues are of no real concern. With a small room and low ceilings, the highly reverbant room has so many reflections that there are so many phase issues that you don't notice them, especially once the crowd noise is factored in.

Delay however is very apparent and IMO necessary to get them to sound right, especially if there is seating near the rear speakers.

I don't run mine as loud as the mains so the focus is still up front for DJ's,  etc.

Subs will carry the room whichever way you want them. I mostly use a mono stack for top 40 type music but for edm shows we go to a split stack. Why? Because with one mono stack there isn't enough room for the dancers to get the full blast and they fight for that space. With 2 they have 2 spots and the spl is a little more sane. Plus the promoters don't give you a weird look that your speakers don't look set up right.

Ps I also use pk sound for edm shows. I assume you are somewhere in western canada?

Ok anyone have any suggestions on theater shows in Toronto? I found a pair of subs for cheap and trying to convince my wife what a great trip it would be. I promised her a show in NY but Toronto would work as well. Any suggestions from anyone with knowledge would be appreciated.

You could look at the juice goose CQ sequencer, they have several options for complete system sequencing. Just don't look for a lot of protection from it.
