Input Routing for Various Scenarios

Given the physical inputs that are attached, the following are recommended routing setups for various common scenarios.  These routes are configured on the ROUTING > home screen.

  • Field Mixer Mode
    This is the nominal mode of operation, where the field mixer by the lighting console is connected in and a selection of stage inputs are available.
    • Inputs 1-8 = Local 25-32 (this puts the wireless mics and field mixer in channels 1-8)
    • Inputs 9-16 = AES50 A9-16 (this puts 4 inputs from each of the Stage Right and Stage Left snakes on this first layer)
    • Inputs 17-24 = AES50 A1-8 (this puts the rest of the Stage Right snake on channels 17-24)
    • Inputs 25-32 = AES50 A17-24 (this puts the rest of the Stage Left snake on channels 25-32)
    • Aux In Remap = Aux Ins (this leaves the iPod, CD, and normal insert functionality in place)
  • Stage (Wide) with Wireless Emcee
    This sets up 24 stage inputs and enables the wireless mics back by the mixer.
    • Inputs 1-8 = AES50 A1-8 (Stage Right 1-8)
    • Inputs 9-16 = AES50 A9-16 (Stage Right 9-12 + Stage Left 9-12)
    • Inputs 17-24 = AES50 A17-24 (Stage Left 1-8)
    • Inputs 25-32 = Local 25-32 (wireless 1-6 + field mixer L/R)
    • Aux In Remap = Aux Ins
  • Stage (Spread Out) with Wireless Emcee
    Still has 24 stage inputs, but here we use 8 from each snake head, plus the wireless mics from the mixer
    • Inputs 1-8 = AES50 A1-8 (Stage Right 1-8)
    • Inputs 9-16 = AES50 A17-24 (Stage Left 1-8)
    • Inputs 17-24 = AES50 A25-32 (Stage Center 1-8)
    • Inputs 25-32 = Local 25-32 (wireless 1-6 + field mixer L/R)
    • Aux In Remap = Aux Ins
  • All Stage
    This uses all 32 stage inputs
    • Inputs 1-8 = AES50 A1-8 (Stage Right 1-8)
    • Inputs 9-16 = AES50 A17-24 (Stage Left 1-8)
    • Inputs 17-24 = AES50 A9-16 (Stage Right 9-12 + Stage Left 9-12)
    • Inputs 25-32 = AES50 A25-32 (Stage Center 1-8)
    • Aux In Remap = Aux Ins
      • NOTE: If you must have some wireless mics, you can set AES50 A Outputs 1-8 to be sourced from Local 25-32.  You can then manually patch an output from the output to the input on the S32 in the amp room using a short mic cable.  Be aware that some of these outputs are already wired up to amplifiers so use caution when making this route (amplifiers should be off or the wireless mics should be off)
  • Board Relay Through
    This setup is useful when we've brought in an external mixer and want to use the existing PA, running that board's outputs into the system.
    • Inputs 1-8 = Local 25-32 (wireless 1-6 + field mixer L/R for emcee mic use)
    • Inputs 9-16 = Local 1-8 (stereo, sub, monitor feeds)
    • Inputs 17-24 = Local 9-16 (not used)
    • Inputs 25-32 = Local 17-24 (not used)
    • Aux In Remap = Aux Ins
  • Movie with Surround Sound
    If the movie is just a stereo track, you'll likely just use the Field Mixer Mode setup above.  If, however, you have discrete surround outputs, you can use this input arrangement:
    • Inputs 1-8 = Local 25-32 (wireless 1-6 + field mixer L/R for emcee mic use)
    • Inputs 9-16 = Local 1-8 (surround channels)
    • Inputs 17-24 = Local 9-16 (not used)
    • Inputs 25-32 = local 17-24 (not used)
    • Aux In Remap = Aux Ins
