    Hey all,

    I have never had a need for using an external stagebox because the 16(18) physical inputs on my Qu-SB always served me well. As a result I’ve never really looked into them and their (in)possibilities so be prepared for some potentially stupid questions 😏

    So, I’ve been asked to become the dedicated monitor engineer for a 5 piece rockband who are all on in-ears.

    This means a have to be prepared for any and all already there hardware from the FOH people to patch into and be as little a nuisance to them as possible
    .

    This is my idea: buy an extra ART S8 (I already have 2), buy an AR2412 and put the 4 into one rack. Put the rack near the main stagebox and patch into that. In the case of multiple stage boxes I need one or 2 extra analog snakes.
    Then connect the AR via a CAT-cable to the Qu-SB that I can keep near to me at the side of stage (or where ever).

    What I’m not sure about: can I just ignore the physical inputs on the Qu-SB and soft-route input 1-24 on the AR2412 to the Qu-SB ? Same for the outputs to the IEM’s, assuming the band puts their IEM close to my stage rack.

    Thanks in advance !

    Adding to this: suppose I/we get to a venue where another digital A&H mixer is used (probably not too often but who knows) could I also tap into their dSnake to get my inputs ?

    You would not be able to “tap into their dSnake” as in split their there D snake line, you could unplug it from their mixer and plug it into you QU.

    Actually if a venue has a QU mixer with the needed inputs you could just load a show
    file from your mixer into theirs and you would be all set.

    That’s too bad but no “showbreaker” fortunately 👍

    I’ve never even worked on a regular Qu mixer and have very very little access to other mixers to become familiar enough with them to trust myself doing a good job mixing in-ears. I’m just an upper echelon hobbyist 😁

    Thanks anyway !

    Not sure if it’s allowed but anyone in Europe have an AR2412 for sale ? Or an ART S8 for that matter ?

    Thank you.
