    I started to think “auto mixer” in conjunction with some creative ducking about half way through of reading these post.

    As far mic gating, if the organ is so loud in that is triggers the mic gates to open adjusting the gate threshold higher not going to be the answer because when some goes to a mic to speak there’s a good chance there voice level will not open the gate, or at least keep it open, you could set a really long gate release time, that would help smooth out the choppy on and off gating if that is a problem.

    The Optogates are not a bad idea.

    The system sounds like it could use a little touch up on main EQ as well.

    I have use the auto mix function a few times on multi mic question and answer forums and it worked well.

    For the older sequencing system you have Furman makes a plug in relay the will provide the contact closure to trigger the remote sequencer, you plug the relay into stage three of the sequencer to next sequencer in line. That will make the system act as one big six or nine stage sequencer system. You will need to adjust the time delays on the sequencers to allow for the each sequencer to complete it’s cycle before the next one.

    There are a couple of other ways you could do it as well, send me a message with a more detailed layout if you want.

    Do you have either a AB168 or AR2412 stage box to try and see if the channels 9-16 work via the stage box through the mixer. That would somewhat narrow down if it is a mixer input hardware problem isolated to channels 9 – 16 or a software processing issue with those channels. Either way it doesn’t fix the problem, just an experiment to try.

    I am going to say that just about all of us when using an analog mixer have returned the effects through a channel. That channel would have aux send controls some of those auxes would be effects sends, if turned up that would create a feedback loop back into the effects unit. The only safety net there was knowing not to do it.

    I would prefer the iPad as well, that’s what we use to control our Qu mixers anyway!

    You can name the DCA control strip, just like naming a channel.
    About the only way now I can think of to mute a matrix with a mute group
    would be to assign the inputs to the matrix to a mute group. Yo may have to get
    creative in the routing to the matrix so that muting the matrix input sources
    does not mute any mixes that you do not want muted.

    #4 – could be handy.
    #5 – No

    If this in a more permanent type of installation/studio you may want to look at a power sequencing system, one switch to turn everything on and off in the proper sequence…provided the equipment is plugged into the proper stages of the sequencing system.

    I got them from B&H photo.
    There are little expensive at $43 each but they do offer some decent protection and an easy way to hold them.

    I have great results with TP Link Archer C7 and Netgreat R7000 routers. I carry both as well as another smaller Netgear router I can’t remember the model number of right now! I only operate them in the 5ghz mode, 2.4 is turned off.
    On my QuPac I have it set to a static IP address, my iPads connect via DHCP and I have the DHCP set to only a six address range.

    While were talking routers what other favorites does anyone have for stable longer range connections.
    Line of site I can get a solid 150 feet plus with either one of those.

    I have iPad Air2’s that I purchased from the refurbished page at the Apple Store.
    I put them in these cases that let you hold them kind of like a painters pallet as well as propping them up at angle when you set them down.

    I also have cut some solid packing foam into angled blocks to prop them up at a steeper angle.

    I like the universal symbols instead of text on the picture of the mixer
    in the manual.

    What other audio needs does your childrens area have, the Qu-pac in general may be a little over kill.

    A de-esser would be handy, I would even take it as a selectable choice per channel of either compressor or de-esser. If needed I could add channel compression via a group.

    Are you connecting to the 2.4ghz or the 5ghz link. At least for the time being I think 5g is the better choice in most areas. At 5g line of sight is more important though.
    A wifi scanner or analyzer app is handy to see what is out there in your area and make it easier to select the clearest operating channel. Unfortunately those apps are mostly only available for Android devices, I have an Android tablet so it wasn’t that big a deal for me. I have WiFi Analyzer and the one from Netgear on my tablet.

    Other people have had the same basic problem including myself, randomly dropping connection to the Qu Pad app while still have 100% signal connection to the router while other apps continue to work.

    What I did to greatly improve my issues was to set a static IP address on the mixer (in my case a Qu Pac), get a better router and switch over to 5ghz. The route in this case is a Netgear Nighthawk R7000, I did just use a TP Link C7 Archer at an all day outdoor event with no issues.
    For the time being I have turned off the 2.4ghz broadcast, hide the SSID 5ghz broadcast and I do not have any encryption on the WIFI broadcast.
    With in range of the router this gives me a 95% connection from the mixer to the App.
    I’ll do some back and forth testing of the routers and see if there is any difference there.

    At this past show with the TP Link router in place the connection never dropped and I did a lot of walking around in and outside the entertainment area.

    On a side note a couple weeks ago I had a band engineer carrying his own Behringer X32 rack mixer and he was using a very cheap Belkin 2.4ghz router, didn’t make any effort to place the router up high and with in a direct line of site to where he was and he was using an older I pad. This all took place in a very crowded 2.4ghz area where using 2.4mhz I take app connection hits all time even after the setting the router to the least used channel. He did not loose App connection to his Behringer X32 rack one time!

    For what it’s worth my Ipads are Air 2 models.
