Mixing Monitors on PM5D
« on: April 23, 2011, 12:04:55 pm »

I did a search and didn't find anything, but I feel like this has to have been discussed before.  Please point me in the right direction if it has.  Anyway...

I'll be mixing monitors on the 5D later this month and am looking for some pointers.  I'm fairly comfortable mixing FOH on it if it's been setup ahead of time and I'm "fluent" on the M7 and LS9, both monitors and FOH.  I'll read the manual and download the OLE but in the meantime any pointers would be much appreciated.  It will be at a festival so everything will be preset, both wedges and IEM's.  Thanks!

Maybe describing what you need to do, what the show requirements are, or how you usually work with other consoles will make it so someone can offer pointers. So far you just seem to have asked for a tutorial on monitor mixing, far too much information for an internet forum.

That's about the response I expected.  Back to the lighting forum...  Feel free to delete.

If you can't describe what you need help with it is pretty hard to help you. That will apply in life as well as on the internet. Good luck with that.

Hi Thomas-

Without some idea of what pointers or tips would benefit you, vis-a-vis the PM5D, we're at a loss.

So I'll offer mine... keep the 24 rotary encoders assigned to the mixes of the selected channel.

HTH

Have fun, happy mixing.

Tim Mc

I thought about replying, but there's at least 3-4 different ways to mix monitors on a PM5D, and I'll use them all throughout a show. To spend a couple hours typing up a response on how to do that would be difficult, especially when you've only touched the desk a couple times and don't REALLY know how it works:

My suggestion is to find someone who is very comfortable on the desk and have them walk you through mixing monitors on it. Either that, or do as Tim said and leave the encoders in Mix Send mode, NOT Mix Master mode. Then, as you select the channel, you can dial up the mixes as you would on an analog desk.

Sorry man but that question was the equivalent of asking "How do I drive a car/truck with a manual transmission?".

If everything is going to be set as you say and you have time on other yamaha digitals I think you're gonna be fine. 

edit: I type worse than somebody with tuna cans for fingers

I didn't realize my question was so vague.  Although, I got some solid answers, and I especially appreciate the suggestion to keep the encoders in Mix Send mode.  I typically don't go into sends on faders mode on the M7 so that should work for me on the 5D.  I guess most people put the graphics on the user defined keys?  If not, what's the quickest way to get to them?

Without having to assign graphic EQs to the UDKs, if you go into the GEQ display, then each graphic EQ will follow the selected mix that the respective EQ is inserted on.
