    Hello all. It looks like our church is about to upgrade to an iLive system. I’ve been playing with the editor software and read through the firmware manual. I think I have a pretty good grasp on things. I started with the templates and now think I have a show and scene mostly routed and setup for us. We are moving to IEM’s and I have set up 7 stereo aux sends. I’ve kept 2 mono auxes, one for the back up vocalists who don’t want to use IEM’s, and another to feed a monitor in front of the speaker.

    However in the mix channel window, when I select monitor it shows 2 mono wedge channels and two IEM channels. I believe this is for the engineer to be able to monitor any of the mixes from the FOH position. Is that a correct assumption and why is there 2 of each? I’ve noticed some of the templates don’t have this. And if I don’t need both how can I get rid of one?

    Thanks in advance. So far this looks like it will be miles ahead of the Mackie SR40-8 it is replacing. ;)

    Okay. So I figured it out. Kind of. I get the extra channels when I turn off processing on either IEM or Wedges. Turning processing back on removes the channels. I know I read where using processing on auxes uses more mix channels. So I guess if I don’t use processing I get two extra channels channels but what benefit is this exactly? Just curious. Will they go away if I assign more group outs? Let me check. :)

    Okay. Nope. I guess those channels are just “hardwired” for Monitor use. Anywho. Guess I figured it out.

    Lol. Well I had yesterday off due to the weather. I’m on Oklahoma. So I was just playing with the editor and seeing what all I could do. That was the one thing that wasn’t obvious to me. Still not 100% sure as to why it is like that, but I now know it is. Anyways looks like a great system. Also reading though older posts it looks like A&H are doing their best to meet the users needs/wants with firmware upgrades. Which is always a good thing. Now if the church will just order it so I can get it installed. Ripping out the old copper snake. Not looking forward to that. But replacing it with a couple of network cables will be sweet. :)

    You will be amazed at the difference coming from a Mackie. Once you learn the editor the surface is a piece of cake.
