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.


Evan,

Since your no Behringer rule has changed, at least have the common courtesy to spell out their name since you are using one of their products.

Hopefully you learn that a man is not defined by the names on the tools he uses, but how he uses the tools.

... and you just parallel them both into the board or do you series them one into the other then into the board?  Does the board recognize them and ask you where you want to put them?

Sorry for all of the questions.  Embarassed

I just may want one of these little things.

Scott,

Forget what Evan said.  He's wrong.  You can't daisy chain the units.

Well, you could, but doing this would just send the 8 inputs of the first ADA8000 to the 8 outputs of the next ADA8000.  Pretty useless.

Each bank of 8 external preamps requires 1 dedicated ADAT lightpipe connection (in and out).

Mac's right. I was having a brain fart. You can use the built in ADAT for the first 8 channels, but then you need a card if you wish to do anymore then 8.

That looks like the Chicago pack I did the other night Laughing
Yes, that is the truth.  I did a date on that tour last spring.  Even with a good pack scheme the truck ended up looking like that.

One last question...  Laughing

So, I would have to buy a "MY16-mLAN" card.  This would allow me to plug in 2 of the ADA8000 type units thus giving me a total of 32 XLR inputs and 16+ the onboard outputs?

Does this thing have enough processing power for all of the features it boasts in use on every channel (provided you actually used it on every channel)?

Thanks, you've been a great help and very patient with my many questions.  Not to mention I hijacked your thread.

Sorry 'bout that, Evan.

P.S. No matter what I do I always wind up with a truck pack like that.  All organized in the beginning, but as you run outta space, the other stuff thats gotta go gets placed in on top and shoehorned in to the small spaces left over.

You would want the MY16-AT, I believe, for 16 channel I/O with ADAT protocol, not mLAN.

I almost went the digital route but "chickened out" at the last moment! I love my new GL2400 though.



That's not chickening out - that's going the "manly" route.  Laughing  
- I refuse to buy a digital board for live until I can get a digital snake that is appropriately priced, "integrated" and remotely controllable.

It won't be too long. I can get 2 of the 3 now. I may live to see it happen.

I haven't run 2 ADA8000, but I have the MY16-AT card, 1 ADA800 (8inputs), 1 Alesis DEQ830(8 I/O) (finally found one in the UK), and also I use the remaining 2 lots of 8 channel output to feed the inputs of my Fostex D160, if I'm recording the gig.

And the Yammie hasn't run out of steam yet!!

Like Even the ADA8000 does the drums (rack toms mainly for me) and my talk back mic, all on the 2nd layer, top layer for money channels, and anything I need to get at quickly.
