Evan, sitting next to your new toy is a small box under your SPL meter.  It has what appears to be 6 or 7 mic inputs going into it.  What is it? Embarassed


Behringer ADA8000 mic preamp / A/D converter. Allows for more mic inputs via the ADAT input on the board.

Evan, Behringer stuff?!?

j/k man!
Glad you like the new setup. I almost went the digital route but "chickened out" at the last moment! I love my new GL2400 though.

Evan,

If you decide to put your board and preamp into a little rack, let me know.  I've got an extra set of rack rails for that board you can have.

How are you liking the ADA8000? I ve been shopping around and am looking at a Presonus Digimax for $600 at the moment. I know the Behringer is way cheaper but I wonder if there is enough quality to be worth the extra money for the Presonus.

I've seen 54' trailer packs that looked just like the Dodge pack you have pictured.  Not good times.


Yes, and the worst part is the dull reminder that hangs in the back of your mind all day.  You know it has to go back in and you know there is no good pack map to work from.


That's what camera phones are for.


Maybe.  Although I've been on calls where brandishing a cell phone equates to a quick trip out the door.


If all else fails get out the legal pad and draw a diagram, or tape numbered pieces of paper to things as they come off the truck.

Sounds just fine to me. I use it on drum duty currently and have no complaints. I didnt feel like spending $600+ on a preamp, and I read enough good about the B-ringer unit to give it a shot. As long as it doesnt break, Im happy.

Im working on getting a case currently. As well as a 4 space rack for the preamps and whatever else.

Can you link 2 of them somehow?  Effectively raising the 01v96's xlr inputs to 28?

Evan, my apology for the hijacking.

Yup!
You just daisy chain the 2 ADA8000's together and that gives you 28  channels.

Huh? AFAIK you cannot "daisy chain" the ADA8000s together. You need a set of ADAT ins and outs on the console for each ADA8000. You can use the built in ADAT interface for one, but you need to install an MY card to accommodate the second. Each ADAT interface can handle only 8 channels.
