Nathan, it's only on Netflix outside the US.

It's on Netflix? If so, that's nice.

I'm over the stupid news websites that don't have the info I want. I searched "where to watch trek" and my results were less than stellar :(

Looking for tips, tricks and techniques for running a band's soundcheck. I've got a good handle on the technical aspects (levels, eq, etc) but it's the social aspect I continue to struggle with despite ongoing communication with my band.

The context: I'm the bass player/backup vox for my country band; we're weekend warriors gigging anywhere from 30-40 times a year. Many years of collective experience. We're all in our 40s/50s and each of us has been gigging since we were teens. I'm the only one who has also done sound over that period of time as well.  I also own and run the PA (DL1608 into EV mains, running wired IEMs) and am the official band sound guy. Simple tech setup, streamlined as much as can with having everything racked up and setup with wiring harnesses. Setup is a breeze.

Even though we have hundreds of gigs under our belts over the years, I seem to have constant challenges keeping the band in line when I'm line checking, sound checking and mixing. Despite attempts to explain to the guys what my process is, I often am met with "I can't hear myself" during line check. No shit, I don't have you in the monitors or mains yet. I often have trouble with the guys playing over top of each other when sound checking each instrument/vocalist. E.g., guitar player noodling when I'm mixing drums.

When mixing the band as a whole, they don't seem to appreciate that I might need them to play more than just a snippet of song to get the mix down and EQ the room. Because we run IEMs, there's often a look of confusion on thier faces when I ask them to do something specific - such as: "turn your amp down" or "keep on playing". I suppose a wireless talkback mic might be a good start.

I guess the simple answer is to contract out the soundman function, but I don't see anyone in the band agreeing to that extra cost. So, aside from that, does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with these social/behavioural aspects of keeping a sound check running smoothly?  I'm tired of being a grumpy sound man who then has to turn 180 degrees and be an engaging performer.

I have heard good things with the X-Air series from Behringer (also available in Midas flavors if the B-word is a nonstarter). The app is not as good as the UI's or even the x32's

I use Mixing Station for my XR.  I prefer the version for the X32 to the official iPad app.

Both the XR and UI internal wireless systems are terrible.  I wouldn't use either.  An external router is a must, as is a backup hard wired laptop - although I have run many times for eight hours at a time with no disconnections.

Behringer also has the X-Touch controller which has been provided with new software to run the XR mixers.  Works with the X32 as well.


Steve.

Here is a little video of 2 BC415s and 2 SH96HOs in white with the LEDs.
They were tied into the light console so the light guy had control over the colors

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

I contend that in general the conclusions of the aforementioned threads condense to: DIY acoustic treatment is generally not as good of an investment as verified panels. That isn't to say that it doesn't work or can't work. Just that when taking into account the time and money spent on DIY panels the results are lackluster.

I have installed Auralex absorption panels that a HS band director had donated to them, and built and installed DIY absorption panels in HS band rooms.  Both panel types did what our modeling and layout predicted.  The main functional difference is that the hardened surface of the auralex and similar panels do not absorb quite as well in the upper range of the panel's raw functional range, depending on the rooms resonances, that could be a good or bad thing.  Those hard surfaces (and beveled edges) do allow for placement in areas where DYI's might be damaged if placed.  DYI (unframed / fabric wrapped rigid) materials cost  floats around 10% of pre-made panels (panel purchase only).

I have come to dislike the new movies, so I have had kind of mixed feelings waiting for Discovery. There are some BIG shoes to fill here...

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?

0 - Yes ima fan.
1 - didn't even know there was a new show
2 - no
3 - yes, i pay for other streaming services; i don't want to pay for 10x more
4 - na

I liked NG, but that's because of my age more than anything.
