Hi there

Just wonder if I’ve missed something in my setting up of this system previously… Anyone seen a trim function on any output strips, other than the faders?

I’d love to be able to trim output levels up or down so I can keep faders at 0dB and leave amplifiers at their maximum gain, adjusting everything in the desk. That way I can limit the system from the desk end and not worry about people cranking up the amplifiers to compensate.

I could also do with this function where I run monitor outs from the FOH desk – typically I need something like 20dB less level going to any monitor send than I need in FOH, but would like to be able to keep faders and “pots” near 0dB for maximum adjustment resolution.

Thoughts anyone?

No trim on outs!
That stage is usually the realm of the speaker processor.BSS Soundweb, KT dn 9848 etc……

A limiter on your outs could also do that for you without screwing up your gain structure……. Or, you could use an online editor as a “master” control center for outputs/MTX/grps/aux and assign these to DCAs(just apply some restrictions for your guest eng.so they can’t change these) you would then have total control on out levels etc……
