Simple outdoor (rural) wedding ceremony.  Minister with earset wireless, a wired mic for vows, 2 channel recorded music (stereo linked)
MR18 Apple Airport express, laptop wired, and android tablet connected to 5ghz network.
30 people.

@ 15 mins til start  I put the earset on the minister and explained that he has to do nothing and showed him the channel he is on the tablet and told him to check it and see his meter.  I can even see the mic picking up the prelude.  @ 5 mins til he is sent by the coordinator to tell the attendees to turn off their cell phones.  I un-mute his channel, he speaks... and nothing.  Luckily the crowd was small and close, so no one was the wiser.  He returned to join the groom for their entrance and I flagged him over to see it the transmitter had died or gone into standby.  All was well.  I checked the tablet settingsfor connection.  Still connected - 5ghz.  I was using Mixing station (free)  There was no message indicating a problem, but no response to controls.  Even the linked playback channels where not working in unison. The scribble strips and custom layer layout were unchanged.

I shut down the app and reloaded.  All was back to normal.  I cannot confirm or deny if the laptop lost control.  Being outside in daylight, the tablet at full brightness was easier to see than the laptop.

Did I experience a glitch in the app?

Contact the developer, David Giga and ask him....  He's VERY responsive to users.

That said, this seems initially like a network issue, where you lost connectivity for a time and then the app and mixer did not re-sync when the connection was resumed.

Edit ps... this is why I continue to say that wireless mixing in NOT a replacement for wire, whether an analog multicore or CAT5e.  It is not reliable in a professional setting and you can bet your ass that if you'd messed up this wedding ceremony that BrideZilla would have your vital organs removed for public display.

The UI-24 is attractive but really more than I Nasdaq and more than 8 want to spend on this box.  Already have si 1 and 3 for sound company use.

Maybe the XLR-18 is a better choice then.  The noise floor issue alone would drop the UI-16 from contention for me.

I will admit to not being a fan of that company based on some of their early business practices.  Ripping off QSC's RMX design for the EU power amps ...  I am not at all down with that... 

I see plenty of the X series mixers though so clearly they are doing something right today...

Yes.

It depends?

Maybe??

I have no idea???

I regularly have to restart apps (yamaha, a&h, behringer, mackie, VNC, etc) on ipad to get them to re-sync. Though over the years app development has gotten much better, its still somewhat normal.

That's odd that the topend is so different on the longterm test when the cea2010 is within about a db of each other.

The long term testing uses a 22sec long ascending sine sweep covering 2-240Hz (The signal stops at 240Hz in order to measure up to a 120Hz bandwidth). Yes the signal starts at 2Hz. In sealed cab driver tests there is no high pass filter used so they take full voltage below 30Hz. Active / powered systems are expected to have protections and filters built in by the MFG so this is also used as a way of verifying that the protections for frequencies below band are adequate. Higher order passive cabs such as vented, BP, TH, etc...Have an appropriate high pass filter put in place for protection.

The limit of the long term test is determined by the first limiting condition that is obviously met anywhere in the useful bandwidth of the cab. It could be limiters engaging, severe thermal compression in the driver, bad noises due to high excursion, amp clipping, etc. For sealed cabs this is often heavy driver excursion and resulting distortion below 25Hz, which is what occurred with the 21SW152-4. Meanwhile the vented cab with high pass filter and reduced driver excursion removes the main limitation of the sealed cab for this testing and allows more voltage to be applied before the vented driver runs out of excursion. It may even shift the limit of the test to one of heat buildup in the driver rather than excursion. This is why the results can often be quite different between a sealed cab and a vented cab using the same driver in this type of testing.


As far as the 212-Pro goes the main take away for me is that it is very light for a sub, small and easily handled by one guy. It doesn't need a huge amount of power and it also gets down to 40hz. It's truly a portable sub that still has balls. 4 of them and a single decent amplifier would do some damage while being light on the back and the AC consumption.

Update. I replaced the pair of bridged QSC PLX3002 with a single Peavy IPR2 7500. Same Honda EU3000i generator. Beat it hard all day. No problems. Sounded great.
Glad it worked out..

Peavey has been messing with class D since before I went there in 1985. They have probably already made all the obvious mistakes, and engineer amps for world power conditions that can be far worse than we encounter.

PS: I just wish I had these modern amps to market back last century when it was my day job.

That looks amazing. Do you know where the led's were placed in relation to the front opening of the SH96HOs?
That is the tough part.

I made a "frame" that went over the front of the cabinet and it stuck out in front of the edges of the horn enough to mount the RGB strips on the backside of the frame.

The problem is that the frame had to be large enough to get the leds to get past the flare break in the cabinet.

Yes, there was probably some sonic interference, but in this case the "cool look factor" was more important.

It was fun to do, but not practical to manufacture.

Of course you could paint them white and simply video map onto them, but that would cost more.  but would also give a lot more variety and possibilities.

I assume there are a few trek fans amongst us so a few questions.

1 - Did you watch the premier
2 - Did you watch the second half on All Access
3 - Is the paid streaming service a non-starter for you?
4 - What did you think of the show?
1 - Recorded it
2 - Second half was on Space here in Canada (same as first) - Recorded it
3 - Yup.
4 - Let you know after I watch them 3 or 4 times.

I'm not obsessed with trek.
That being said, I have all TOS and NG episodes on DVD, and all movies on DVD or BR.
Prefer TOS and NG. Watched a bit, but didn't really follow Voyager and Deep Space. Never saw Enterprise.

Chris.

My first thought is that you need to "alpha-up" when it's time for sound-check, by that I mean take control of the situation like a professional sound engineer would do.

Tell them "OK we're all here, we have our instruments and mics all set up. Let's go through each instrument one at a time, as we're working on the sound of each instrument please tell me if you need that channel adjusted in your monitor." After you have gone through all the channels individually, it's time to play as much of a song as you need to get the FOH balance figured out, then stop and ask for any changes in the monitor mixes. Your EQ adjustments to make the mix work will also affect their monitor mixes so it's normal to have some adjustments as the mix settles.

If they won't respect your position as a sound engineer for the band, then it's time to talk about hiring someone else to do it. You are doing double-duty, that deserves respect during the most important time for your job as sound-engineer...

You can't really go wrong with a SansAmp. I've used the BDDI and now the RBI; the preamp and tone shaping capabilities add some oomph that you don't really get using the channel strip. And the fact that you can dial in a bit of drive doesn't hurt for some genres. I've got my RBI permanent racked in my road case and plug my bass straight into that (and then into the board). Set it and forget it really.  I haven't used a bass amp on a gig for over a year now.

I've played with modelling amps (i.e., multiple Line6 products) and honestly, there are so many features on them that aren't necessary 95% of the time (bass synth anyone?). I've never been quite satisfied with the DI tone either.
