    Hey Community,

    I saw that there are 38 Mono Busses that you can configure (+ fixed PAFL and LR). So thats 19 Stereo. If we subtract the SQ standards (3 Matrixes, 4 Stereo FX sends) there are 12 left. So Avantis has no more bussing capability then SQ? Or am I missing something here?

    Regards, Alex

    Hi Alex,

    A correction if I may.
    The FX sends in SQ are mono busses. If you configure an Avantis to match the bus structure of an SQ (4 mono FX sends, 12 stereo Aux/Grp, 3 stereo Mtx, 1 PAFL, LR) you should still have 4 spare mixes remaining in your Mixer Config screen.

    This might not sound like much, however one of the advantages of Avantis is that the bus architecture is much more configurable.
    So for example, a Monitor engineer might need a lot of Aux mixes, but no Matrix (even no LR perhaps). You could get say 12 mono + 12 stereo monitor mixes depending on the number of FX in use.
    Conversely, at FOH you might need very little in terms of Auxes, but plenty of Matrix and FX sends.

    Hey Nicola,

    thanks for your answer! You are right, I‘m mainly doing FOH and the 3 SQ matrixes are sometimes the Problem.
    Another perspective: the SQ really is a powerhouse in terms of bussing for that pricepoint. Thinking about an Upgrade to Avantis a little more capability like 50 Mono Busses would have been nice… 😉
