    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.

    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”.

    What firmware version is the SQ running?
    Try uninstalling and reinstalling the APP.

    When you set up a static IP on the mixer was that address in the same range
    as the IP address of the router and the subnet as well as the gateway, the gateway in
    this case would be the router IP address.

    For instance the router IP address is 192.168.20.1 you could set the mixer to a static
    IP of 192.168.20.20.

    Also you need to set the router so it DHCP handout range starts and stops outside the IP
    address that you set static IP on the mixer to.
    I set my routers to have a small range of DHCP handout address starting at xxx.xxx.xxx.100 to .110

    Here is a drive that works well, requires a USB C to A cable to plug in.

    As they say a picture is worth a thousand words!
    You will need a fast USB drive to record multitrack.

    I you have a stage box with the QU Pac then all 24 channels would load and be available.
    The Qu Pac has more processing then the QU24 so that is not an issue.

    I have mine racked,the rack mount is a AB168-RK19.

    There is a long rack ear that goes on the side of connections so you
    have room to get to the D Snake connections and the power connector.

    I’ve put a couple of those KT Bluetooth receivers into installs, they work well with decent pick up range.

    They do not have a password, I think Bluetooth passwords are kind hit miss, seems like very few devices ask for a password to connect and for all but a few truly pro Bluetooth
    receivers that let you set up a password if the receiver has a password there mostly the same as 00000 or 11111.

    In your case I think a Bluetooth receiver would work best. Are you using
    the ST1 stereo input jacks?

    If you do go with Bluetooth remember to keep that channel muted when not in
    use so no one jumps on your Bluetooth receiver and start playing who knows what
    when you lest expect it!

    The only thing downstream from the mixer is the powered PA speakers EV EKX-15sp with EKX-18 subs and the volume is very low, no where near hitting the limiter on the speakers.

    Keep in mind the “volume control” on the power speakers does not set the limit of the speakers output.
    It is quite possible to still overdrive the speakers input with the controls turned down
    with enough input signal from a mixer.

    How high is the mixer output level metering showing when running the system?

    As noted lots of ways to get there.
    How you get there and control that mic channel depends somewhat on if you set it up
    to be on a pre fade or post fade aux send.

    Let talk post fade for now, that way you can have the mixer in the main LR mix layer
    to control the other inputs and the room mic channel.

    – Select the aux you want to use.
    – In that aux set up menu select post fade and I would also select post all for the
    aux pick off point.
    – Go to the routing menu.
    – Select the room mic channel by hitting the green select button.
    – In the routing menu turn off the LR main mix select button.
    (you can also do that by selecting the main LR mix on the mixer surface and
    then hold down the assign button on the left side of the mixer. Doing that
    will light up all the channel select buttons that are routed to the selected mix.
    While holding down the assign button hit the green select button on the room mic
    channel, that will turn off the select button light and de-select it from the
    main mix.)
    – Now select the mix/aux you want the room mic to go to.
    – Bring up the mix master level and on just the channel for the room mic
    bring up the fader, start and unity about 75%.
    – Select the LR main mix on the mixer surface
    – With the room mic channel set for post fade and de-selected from the main LR output
    you can control the room mic level feeding the aux from the main mix layer on mixer.

    That will be fine.

    I was thinking if it was a long run then going balanced line to the Boxcaster and at that point via a transformer go unbalanced to the Boxcaster input.

    Is there any make up gain applied to the LR compressor?

    If so maybe with the extra make up gain the level is just high enough
    to trigger another compressor/limiter further downstream from the mixer.

    That will work fine.

    Though….depending on the video system set up you may need to use an isolation transformer in line between the mixer and the Boxcaster if you get hum either on the live stream audio and or in the sound system.

    How long is the audio cable run from the mixer to the Boxcaster?

    On the subject of dSnake connectivity, am I able to use a AR2412 -> AB168 cascaded together in the proper order, on the Qu-16 or Qu-32 A&H console? This venue is thinking of switching consoles to one of those models, but I want to make sure their new console can still work with the stageboxes they already have installed in the space.

    The AR2412 and AB168 will work with both the QU16 and the QU32. Keep in mind the stage boxes do no expand the channel count the QU series, you still only have the total number of channels available that the mixer surface has.
    You can mix local inputs with stage box inputs as long as the total number of channels equals the mixer surface.

    You can squeeze a couple more mic inputs by assigning a stage box mic input to on of the mixers stereo input channels.

    Also stage box input routing and channel source selection is saved as part of a scene so you could have various inputs connected to the mixer and stage box that are only use
    for certain events and just recall the scenes as needed to activate those inputs.
