Great. Iíve got some nice BiDirectional single strand Gigabit SFP on the shelf so will give them a shot.

Fellow LABsters,

I'm planning to tie the knot in March of 2019 in Verona, NJ.  I would love to have a real band of Pros play at our wedding reception.  Do any of you work with any such bands or have any recommendations in the area? 

Thank you!

The most problems we have had in the sun is Chris's pedal board. At the 4th July show this year all we got was buzzing and he had to abandon using it and unplug. The powered speakers for FOH and monitors were all in the same sun but we had no problems with those. Mixer had shade. Pedal board cooled off and was fine.

I am really careful to try to always access shade - especially for the sensitive equipment but it is not always possible.
I've never had any other piece of equipment go down from heat or sun and in the summer months in both CA (where we lived for 14 years)  and NC ( for the last 12 years) - that is pretty amazing.....

It has a few upsides, most notably with things like drums, vocals or spoken word in noisy environments.

It is not like a gate although in principle that is what it is. A gate is more abrupt and doesn't have a ratio making it more like a switch with parameters to make it less noticeable or more controlled. An expander is more like a reverse compressor. It has a ratio, attack, release, and range ( db reduction amount ), and is much more subtle at opening and closing making it more natural and useful for things that are more sensitive to an on-off sound.

The Neve 5045 Primary Source Enhancer, in essence, is a glorified expander with fewer knobs. When most of us hear downward expansion we think more like a gate, but that is not what it is. Downward expansion should be thought of as more like downward compression, or decompression. As the signal gets quieter the output level is reduced more and more in relation to the ratio and threshold setting we use. The range sets the amount of db reduction and the attack and release times adjust the softness of the on-off nature of the compressor.

If used well you can get up to 10db more gain before feedback in touchy situations, but you have to be careful. The concept is simple. When the person is not talking the gain is reduced and feedback is staved, as soon as the person talks the expander opens up and you get full output again. If set up well, you can get a little more volume without feedback. For drums, you can use it to reduce background noise and tighten up the drum mix. With noisy stages and background vocals, you can use it to at the very least duck out some of the stage wash when the background singers are not on the mic.

Think of an expander as more of a compressor in reverse. It simply reduces the noise floor by compressing it into a smaller dynamic range. As the signal gets quieter it drags the signal down more quickly to the noise floor which you set. As the signal gets louder ( in relation to the noise floor ) the expander drags the noise floor up ( opens ) and the signal is released from the expander. There is a makeup gain feature as well. Again an expander is designed to act more like a compressor. The makeup gain increases the output as you can imagine by the set amount. This brings the noise floor up with it. The range sets where the noise floor is and the ratio and threshold settings set the db level where the expander starts to uncompress. This is what allows you to make the quiet things louder in relation to the noise floor, hence the term expander.

Hey all,
I am trying to come up with a back hand way to get L21-30 3Phase connection before we can have a new PD delivered. Our current PD's have plenty of L14-30 outputs. My thought was make a double L14-30P to L21-30R to get the 3 hot legs needed. They would be plugged into consecutive L14-30 outlets on the PD to keep the load balanced (XY,ZX). Thoughts?
Probably marginally acceptable in the shop; not OK for a gig.

If you can see level in the channels PRE-GC, then your patch is likely ok.
Sounds like for some reason the GC is not working as it should. I assume you have it disabled?
Try enabling it and crank the gain up and down and see what happens.
Maybe the GC settings are internally dialled way down in the RIO for some reason - Factory Reset your RIO.
If the internal GC settings in the RIO don't match the QL, then I would suspect Firmware mismatch/incompatibility.

I removed the top cross pieces and cut them to one foot long and have them pointing forward with an eye bolt near the front, to which I can hang the carabiners on the ends of the screen.
The problem there is the legs get in the way. They each come out 2'.

What you are doing is downright dangerous.  By hanging the screen out in front you are giving up at best half of your stability (one foot out of two feet), and worst case nearly all of it.  A two foot reach leg on a tripod only has a support base size of one foot (see this prior post).  If you happen to put the long leg facing back, the thing is almost guaranteed to tip.  Wrong tool for the job.

Ignore this advise at your guests' peril.

I believe it will come down to insurance companies refusing to cover these events......
I mean, why should MY insurance have to cover stupid ?
Granted, i don't know the details of this case, but still.....
I can already feel my premiums going up just reading this...

Even with the console setup to recieve dhcp from the router and following Soundcraft's instructions I can't get an ip address. I tried static ip in the correct subnet and correct ip range and still can't get a connection.

Then the router is defective, most likely.

A router (as defined by IT folks, not Best Buy or consumer-speak) doesn't need a modem for DHCP, as the router is what assigns IP addresses (the DHCP server is internal to the router).

Some consumer items *may* be different from their commercial/professional counterparts because most consumers are ill-equipped to do more than plug in the power supply... and I have no experience with your little pocket router/AP.

The reason you can't get the devices to "talk" to each other is simple - they don't have IP addresses in the same subnet (or are unaddressed).

Even with the console setup to recieve dhcp from the router and following Soundcraft's instructions I can't get an ip address. I tried static ip in the correct subnet and correct ip range and still can't get a connection.
