    Gaffers tape = tape that is designed by "Gaffers", aka guys on film sets that do nothing but electrical work.



    The tape is designed to hold wires and cables to floors and walls without leaving residue which in the film business is costly to remove in labor and time.



    Gaffers tape is the courteous tape to use when playing out. It's easier to use and doesn't leave glue all over the venue.



    USE GAFFERS TAPE.

      +1 on the Gaffer's Tape. We always use it, and I think the bar owners appreciate it also...

      I wish it were a little cheaper tho.

        Gaffer tape user here. No residue is nice. One thought here, when you rip off a piece of tape from the roll, make sure you fold the end of the remaining tape on the roll, because once it's flat on the roll, it can be a real bitch to find the end of the tape. Even if you scrape your thumbnail slowly along the surface, it's hard to find that "end". On a roll that's perfectly round, it might be a bit easier,,, but if the roll's been dropped a few times, good luck with that.

            It's pretty common at weddings, private parties, etc to have to mix side-stage. There's often just no way you can run a snake and/or set up a table for FOH. This is the #1 reason I bought my DL1608 .

                  It's not practical to set up a mixing board out in the middle of a room--or even off to the side for a lot of private events. They just don't want that setup messing with the visual of how they've designed the room for their event. So in such cases, the soundguy will set up off to the side and do the best he can by roaming the room. Most of the times these days we're using a Presonus mixer, so we're setting it up on the side of the stage anyway and the sound guy is mixing out in the room using an iPad, but sometimes we have to do the same thing with the analog mixer as well. Not ideal, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

                    We're buying a StudioLive 16.4.2 literally tomorrow. All very excited about the upgrade. Question Dave, do you need a computer to utilize the wireless mixing features using an iPad or whatever? I know you need a wireless router, but I'm not sure if a laptop is also required to set that interface up...? We'll eventually be utilizing a laptop anyway for recording and stuff...but I'm not sure if we'll also have to have it to make all of the wireless features available..



                    I can totally imagine not being able to setup a FOH at every event or wedding...there just may not be a good way to do it. You're not gonna run a snake across the banquet hall floor (taped securely or not) and have Grandma take a spill. That would liven up the evening.

                      Yes, you need a computer with FireWire if you want to use an iPad for control (I've been using a SL16.4.2 for years).

                        I'm pretty sure the answer is YES, but I'm not really the right guy to ask. I don't set it up. Our sound guy handles all that (it's his board) but he always has the laptop set up so I presume it is necessary.

                        Yeah, it's especially tough at weddings. Sometimes there's a decent spot off to a side wall, but the wedding planners usually have the rooms charted out and don't really appreciate us coming in and saying "we need a table to set a mixer up over here next to the cake...." Usually we get away with it, but it's MUCH easier (and looks so much cleaner) to go the Presonus and iPad route.



                        Good choice and good luck with the board. I think it's awesome. I'm planning on buying one myself soon so we don't have to rely on the sound guy to bring it every time.
