2 sets of independent L/R speakers ...

It allows you to do several things based on the system design .. one system for Book, the other for Band, or one system for one actor and the other for another so that phasing artifacts are kept to a minimum to keep the quality of the voice intact.

The article references the latter method when it brings up the A/B design.

While mainly a theatre musical application, it has been done in the live end (Red Hot Chilli Peppers did it a number of years ago, separating different instruments/Vocals to each system)

When I read glowing articles about self driving trucks and cars of the near future I have to consider trains.  Trains have a near century head start on cars & trucks, they can only travel on very well defined routes and have a large large and well regulated infrastructure supporting their operation and despite all this they can't seem to get automation working well enough to prevent the occasional fatal crash and accompanying systemic disruption.  Not holding my breath on self driving cars.

 
Truck drivers are in demand now, but before too long it will be automated with self driving rigs. Probably years to make hay before that happens.

Maybe you can do both (drive and cue).

I know, I know.  You didn't ask me, but personally I have had a number of occasions where wifi connections will temporarily drop when I most needed it most.  It's been a problem for nearly every digital console I've used at one time or another.  It's comforting to have some sort of "back up" system with physical knob(s) / fader(s).

But Tom there are many of us on this forum - myself included- that get excellent results using wi-fi. It is not necessarily the fault of the XR12 or any particular digital mixer for that matter but could be caused by any combination of the following ( but not limited to):
router/WAP style/type, not selecting network security, Static IP address, not using 5Ghz etc. If you are relying on the internal router of the XR12 then that is your problem right there.
I purchased the QU PAC because I wanted a rack mount mixer but one that I could mix on if necessary ( if WI-FI goes down). Ionically I have NEVER had to use the facia controls to mix after 3 years of very regular use.

Quote them a price that covers the amount of money you need to do the work for that type of client. Add-ons should certainly be line-item additions to the original quote.

Let them be the ones to say 'no'.

Gain structure:  is -18dBFS nominal on this console?  Setting the oscillator to 0dB and assigning to a buss seems to result in a slightly lower than -18 level.
I believe this is normal. The oscillator at 0 dB should read -18. Or are you concerned it is reading too low you mean? I'll double check on mine.

I dealt with dropout on nearly every show till I found out about access points instead of routers.  I had someone in the wireless technology field set up my network with a static IP address and its been like night and day..

This is the piece I got after two Netgear failures.. It's what everyone with an iPad/ Notebook mixer needs..

I've always thought the rotary on the Impact was quite good but the touch screen seems to require a bit more pressure to get a response compared to the other Si series boards I have used.

...Definitely strange.


The Soundcraft Si compact platform is equipped with the same Power Supply for all models from Expression, Compact and newer ones, located in the bottom left of the desk. In models like Performer and Impact where the additional channels LCD and backlight leds draw a little more current,  Soundcraft installed a 12Vdc fan over the Power Supply to help it dissipate the heat, which could have some struggle to find its way out of the desk frame, mostly with road cases that block the desk lower front grille or has a raised doggie house for cables in the back.

The data lagging/skipping behavior of the rotary encoder may indicate a dirty condition of its internal contacts and is common in some devices using this control type when are stored in humid environment or exposed to condensation/dew during storing or transporting process. This could be easily solved using Electronics Contact Cleaner sprays (trying not to flood the desk with it). A couple of small spray applications very close to the metal axis (knob removed), but not pressing it while rotating should do the trick.

Audio Technica generation 4 3000 series first impressions.

The Receiver:

-   Slightly larger than the older 300 series.
-   Easy to see display with lots of display options.
-   Scrolling through the menu it seems like it jumps to every other
sub menu choice as you cycle through it.
-   Audio output is set in the menu instead of on the rear panel.
-   All transmitter programming options can be set within the receiver
and uploaded to the transmitter using the IR sync (transmitters can still
be programmed at the transmitter)
-   Can be programmed to have a secondary back up channel ready to go on both
the receiver and transmitter ( I donít think it will auto switch)
      -    The dual rack mount joining plate used for the older 3000 series receivers
            will not work with the new series.


Handheld transmitter:
      -    Very solid feel
-   Interchangeable mic capsules that use the standard Shure style screw on threads and connections.
-   Getting to the on off power switch requires opening up the mics sliding cover to get to the very small slide switch.
-   There is small push button next to the antenna on the bottom of the mic that is
programmable to be a mute, RF mute, back up channel recall or disabled.


Bodypac transmitter:

-   I donít think it feels as solid as the older 3000 series.
-   Completely different mic connector that is NOT Hirose compatible.
Itís a four pin style female connector on the body pac, smaller than the
HIRSOE with a screw on locking ring on the mating male connector on
the mic cable. The threads are very fine, I can see them getting cross threaded and or over tightened by your everyday casual user.


The new 3000 has more features and is priced higher across the board than the original 3000 series wireless systems.

Not sure why they did not just offer another frequency group in the original 3000 series
packaging and possibly release this new version as a new model group and call it the 3500 series. The body pac mic connector change makes no sense to me considering the number of people who will be looking to replace their 600mhz 3000 series bodypac systems and want to continue to use their inventory of mics.
I did just hear that an adapter cable is going to be available to convert the new style connector to the original Hirose.

1-2 rack spaces and physical knobs for mixing?  You must have little tiny fingers.

What's your beef with the XR-12?
