  1. It's not that the mixer's internal Wi-FI is bad, it's all the crap in the 2.4 band mucking things up. 5GHz is a must anywhere but at home.
  2. For the Leslie bottom, stick a little bitty mic through one of the lower slots. Or get a Kelly Shu Flatz with a Beta 91, and put it just inside the rear panel.
  3. If all you can spend is a grand or two on the whole thing, I'd rent or better yet hire out.
  4. They must not have been the buds that come with the units, as all the one's I've heard were dreadful. The wireless are good.
  5. No law says that you must have drums. One of the best shows I've seen was a girl, her acoustic guitar, and a bassist.
  6. Stretch Saran Wrap over the monitors. With some tweaking they will still be usable and will be beer proof.
  7. A friend could use that MP418SP should you decide to sell it.
  8. Royalties ain't much these days, especially for songwriters. Less than a penny per play I think.
  9. Funny, a friend who uses 935s and 945s keeps an 835 for "girls with icepick voices". Maybe his is mellower than most.
  10. There should be* no need for a transformer split - lots of folks use hardwire splits. Two consoles so connected are sufficiently isolated internally that phantom can be fed from either console or both. *Unless there are issues with the power grounds being at different potentials on stage and in the studio. If the above is the case, but you have the studio split feeding a digital stagebox that connects to the studio console via CAT5, there should be no problem. I hate to say it, but the new Presonus setup looks really good. You can get the Presonus stage box, mix surface, and an EWI hardwire splitter for under $4000 shipped. See
  11. In one of the (exceedingly lively) rooms I've worked a lot, things can be great on stage - reasonable volume and everyone is happy. As soon as the PA is loud enough to get a good blend with the monitor wash in the house, the house wash onto the stage makes the monitors disappear. The struggle then begins. One tracks band wanted the monitors so loud that I basically had the house killed between 100 and 400. (And this wasn't hip-hop, this was 'easy listening' stuff.)
  12. According my preferred dealer: X32 and a pair of S16 = $3412 + shipping. CS18AI and a RM32AI = $3450 + shipping. Presonus is finally getting interesting again.
  13. IME the Bose can't do anything that a 10" 2-way and a small sub can't do - and the Bose costs a lot more money. I'd take a B-52 Matrix 2000 over the Bose.
  14. IMHO high-passing the bass is not the way to solve any problem that one might have.
