    You direct box is fine for the keyboard.
    Plugging into the same stage box should be no problem.

    Hiss is normally a gain issue, hum is more a grounding or induced
    pick up issue, of course equipment problems can cause both issues.

    Turn everything in the system on, keyboards, guitars, pedals, wireless receivers, ect.
    They using the PFL go through each channel one at a time and listen to them in a good pair of headphone and see if the noise is coming from directly any input or inputs, that’s without no one playing the instruments.

    Check the volume level on the keyboard, some of those the volume level controls the output level, it may be tunred way down causing you to apply a lot of gain to the channel. Also if the keyboard have built in speakers some have a way to turn them off.

    On the piano see if the Cducer interface has a level control and where it is set.

    We are currently using a matrix of the mains to run our stream because it is just me running the FOH and stream. For some reason I can not get the kick drum sound to come through. I will post a link to our service and if any one can give me any ideas I would be grateful. We are currently using SQ6 and are thinking about getting another for someone else to mix to stream the only. Our worship pastor wants to get the Avantis for FOH and sq6 for streaming. Any thoughts on this for suggestions. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYHz2fAP1sA

    Overall what I listened to did not too bad.

    Instead of using the main LR mix to feed the live stream set up a separate post fade aux mix to feed the live stream.
    Set all the channel aux send levels to the same level, maybe about 70%, then I would take the spoken word only inputs and bump them up higher as well as the kick drum and any other inputs you feel that need adjusted higher or lower in the live stream.

    Since the aux is set post fade those settings will track what you do in the main mix only with bumps up or down in the live stream mix.
    After a few tweaks those mix levels can more or less be left along, that is about the
    best compromise for a one person sound team.

    Keep in mind if you bring someone else on board to handle the live stream mix they could use the iPad APP and mix it remotely in a different location.
    In that case make the aux mix sends pre fade or if you have enough open channels you could double patch the inputs with one bank of channels for the main mix and another bank of channels just for the live stream. With double patching you would have complete independent channel processing for the live stream feed.

    If your main system is overall bass/low heavy you may be pulling the kick back in the over mix to get the correct room mix balance, or maybe the kick drum is acoustically loud on it own in the room.

    Not sure what your going after in the way of overall kick drum “sound” but it looks like there is no hole/port in the head on the kick drum, cutting a hole in the head and putting the mic inside the drum will get you a little more defined “punch”.

    MikeC thanks for the feed back. The reason we set the board up using a matrix is try to make it simple for streaming for who ever ran the board. Was told by some friends that do sound and they said that if I used an aux channel I would have to mix the foh and the stream would have to separate mixes. So it set the aux to post fader and set each aux channel to about 70% then I should be able to mix just foh and get a good recording from stream if I am understanding you.

    If the live stream aux was set pre fade then you would need someone to mix that aux as I mentioned, with it set to post fade it will track along with changes made to the main mix and any level/mix changes made at the aux send level will stay in proportion on the live stream mix.

    If you add a dedicated mixer for the live stream are you going to set it up in a isolated
    room to mix in? Keep in mind then your would always need two people on the sound team for ever live streamed service. You could always switch to a FOH feed as a back up.

    With what you church and production looked like I’m not sure an Avantis for FOH would do anything for you in terms of a quality upgrade over the SQ, unless you truly need more inputs and outputs.

    Another question about streaming service. As I had said before we are using a matrix since we do not have anyone to run the streaming using an aux pre fader. The voices on my stream seem to be a little on the low side and would like to get the louder. When I open up the matrix for stream it shows me all the auxes we are using etc. I see that we have a aux open and it shows there to could I use this aux to go in and increase the pastors mic for more volume and also the singer would this help? Would it be better instead of using the matrix using the open aux as a post fader and set the band at unity and the the vocals and pastor up to made 5 on the fader. Trying to learn and not settle. Also would it hurt the matrix for the stream to be in stereo or mono?
