    I agree. There are no technical solutions to inexperience, no quick fixes or shortcuts to operator competence. Of course, the same can be said about the musicians on stage…

    Un-assign the drum mic from the mains rather than muting. They can be remain assigned to the Mix you use to feed the camera.

    First, have your system tuned and ready to go with proper system processing. Driver/speaker alignment, EQ and limiting need to be optimized if you expect proper translation of audio mixing efforts to be effective. Same for your wedges.

    Beyond that, knowing ahead of time the stage plot, monitor mix content per wedge and such will save time.

    As far as indivdual channel processing goes, that’s on an ad hoc/as needed basis. If you have some standard settings you find yourself always using, make some presets and save them to the user library so you can load them quickly.

    But the starting point I find myself using most often is…FLAT.

    Good luck.

    Try muting the ST3 channel input.

    A simple answer:

    Download the free Qu-pad app and in demo mode select whichever Qu you desire. You can find the answer to many common questions such as yours. The Qu-SB shows 15 soft keys on the version I have.

    Check your Message folder. I sent you info on “how-to” off-forum as this is the A&H Forums, not Live Sound…as Steffen notes.

    Good luck.

    The only way I can see would be to PAFL the FX return channel and choose that as the Alt Out source.

    Aaron…

    To be honest, I really think you’re imagining a lot of things here in regard to how sound, sound systems and acoustics work. Looking back over a live sound and performance career spanning more than 50 years, I can remember when I thought as you do. That was quite a while ago.

    If the answers you get don’t seem to fit, it’s very likely the result of the questions you have seem somewhat skewed and mis-directed. No offense intended.

    You can’t “tune a room” without structural alterations. You can “tune” a system using dual FFT analysis and you can optimize room/system interaction by proper speaker placement, but you cannot alter room characteristics with EQ.

    Hi,
    I know you shouldn’t mix with headphones live but…

    You are correct. There is no “but…”

    Use your ‘phones to monitor channel adjustments via PAFL. Unless you’re doing a live,to two recording or broadcast mix, you need to hear the stage wash to mix for the room. That’s just not happening in the cans.

    You’ll also want to download the Qu User Guide, a.k.a. the Manual. The info you want is on page 40. Here’s a screen shot:

    . I’ve got a USB Cable from the port on the QU-16

    The USB-b port or the Qu-drive?

    Phil…

    Glad it’s working within your budget. For anyone else considering such issues I think it only fair to quote Listen Technologies themselves regarding other possible issues, particularly ADA compliance.

    While these types of solutions can be used by the general public as well as the hearing impaired, it’s important to note that they were not designed to meet the ADA standards for assistive listening or comparable laws outside of the U.S., which require venues to provide an equivalent listening experience for the hearing impaired. While the audio latency associated with Wi-Fi technology is negligible, it cannot provide an equal experience for people with hearing loss. This limitation combined with the requirement to provide a specific number of assistive listening devices means that Wi-Fi is not an ideal solution for compliance. That said, there are applications where Wi-Fi-based solutions can complement an existing assistive listening system (ALS) that uses RF, IR, or induction loop technologies, giving all patrons or customers the best possible listening experience.
