    Hey Alex! i thought i would check out your blog as well. Aviom system! I am coveting. 🙂 A&H rocks! We are using a MixWizard 16 for our wired in-ears. Great pre’s!

    I have added you to my blogroll as well.

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks for watching! I wish I could say that I’m as happy with our A&H as you’re yours. We have a GL3000 which is not that bad of a board I suppose, but I think she’s had a hard life. I really love our Midas Venice, but she doesn’t have the Aux’s that we need for our Aviom Rig.

    I checked out your WC and I love your transitions! Totally awesome! You guys rock and the kids were awesome too!

    Talk to you soon! – Chris

    ah, your blog has multiple authors, or does it? thanks for the props.

    On your Midas board – Does it have direct outs on each channel, or inserts that you could run a TRS cable halfway out to run to your Aviom Rig?

    I would love to run an Aviom setup. We are a relatively young church, and don’t have the cash to make it happen…yet.

    We don’t use any wedges, but we do have a wired in-ear system that we created. What we do is use an A&H MixWizard 16 (like I mentioned before), and two Behringer (don’t mock me) headphone amps. Then I opened up the board and switched all of the auxs to pre, giving us 7 mixes (6 auxes, and the stereo outs, for the worship leader of course 🙂 ). All the mic inputs go to the A&H board, and then I have some recording snakes going out of each channels direct outs to the FOH snake. The thing that is great is that we still have the inserts which I pull halfway out on each channel and run to my Echo interface which gives me 12ch for live recording on my Macbook. A mess but it works great!

    I have found the only drawback to in-ears is if you ever have guest artists. They always seem to want wedges!

    Wow Steve – that’s pretty deep. I’m sure Chris will appreciate this comment. And yeah, me, Chris, and my brother James all post here, although I am probably the most active.

    You know, I was doing some research today and was just thinking about direct outs. I know that on the A&H boards they are pre-faders. That wouldn’t be that bad of an idea if our midas has them. I do know that it has inserts but that’s how we run our limiters and gates. So not sure that will work out the way I want it too.

    Yeah, Alex is addicted to blogging and I’m addicted to his blog! lol. If you have a moment, check out all the WC’s and you get to see us all!

    alright, time for bed. later guys.

    So, did some research, our Midas DOES have Direct Out’s, and I believe they are pre’s. SO…we’ll give it a shot.
