LS9 walk-in

(1/2) > >>

luis Markson:
As per my other thread I have a walk-in tomorrow where a LS9 is supplied.  I've only used one once but being so long ago now, It may as well be the first time. I am unsure as to weather there will be a system tech.

It is an 8 piece band, including G/piano and a horn section. Crooner/swing style. Monitors from FOH with 7 mixes. While the stage plot doesn't show it, I've been told there will also be side fill. Yikes. This would be a busy monitor gig with a dedicated monitor system!

I've watched the LS9 tutorial on the Yamaha website, so at least I've got some idea of where to find things. My question is in relation to effecient operation. How do most people operate monitors from the LS9? Replica of input list on a seperate layer or via the encoders?

Are mix buses pre or post fader by default? Pre or post insert?

I am going to keep this increadably simple. Hopefully the musos have thier sound sorted and I wont have to insert anything anywhere... I'm not familiar with the room so I don't know if any verb will be required...

If I need to use it could someone please reccomend library preset for verbs for snare, toms & vox for this style of music?

There are a thousand other things I need to know.... I'll sit down tonight and start to go through the input list...

For pre EQ foldback sends you have to duplicate the channels to the second layer, then you can dedicate the channels to monitors and EQing to suit or no EQ as required.

Get your input list straight up, use multiple layers of console tape to make sure you have all your layers okay.

Name and label your channels on the console. Always helps remind you whats selected.

I like the Rev X FX, right at the end. Hall for Vox, Plate for Snare. Then the Echo patch for some nice stereo delay.

Spend your inital time getting the routing correct. Know your sends for foldback and such, use sends on faders. Knowing your routing and such will increase your efficency a lot. Once you have your Routing set, get your line level and vocal channels up, then slowly bring in instruments which don't require amplification as much, this will decrease the sudden scramble at the start of the gig where you can easily panic and lose where you are up to.

Thanks.

I'm trying to download the manual, but unfortunately  have the worlds slowest internet connection. I may as well ask the question while I'm waiting:

By sends on fader, does that mean that each fader acts as the "aux pot" for each respective channel, for a selected send or does each fader represent an aux master?

luis Markson:
Here's another one:

The PA is a JBL Vertec LCR system. L & R are 4 x 928 a side and C is 4 x 932 with 2 xA SB6128.

As the subs have been specified as a component of C what is the most likely routing configuration for the system? I have not mixed on a LCR rig before...

When channel pans are centred does this route the channel to C or would C be on a separate mono mix bus?
