Recording system gets new interfaces: Focusrite Clarett 8Pre X and Clarett OctoPre. Maximum number of simultaneous record tracks is now 16 (down from 24 for 48K).
Sweet Spot Sound goes small: For events that are just too small to justify hauling out the CL5, I've added a Behringer X Air XR16 16-channel mixer. It's run from an iPad over Wi-Fi.
A major console upgrade: M7 and LS9 have been replaced by Yamaha CL5s, 3 RIO3225Ds and 2 RI8Ds on stage. An analog split ahead of the RIOs provides 64 separate preamps for FOH and 48 for monitor world. A 200' redundant CAT6 snake connects FOH to the stage digitally, including drive to a Meyer Sound Galileo Callisto 616 speaker processor (also new).
The Dante digital audio network and the Dante Virtual Sound Card (VSC) permits multitrack recording to laptop. The CL5 comes with Nuendo 64 but VSC appears as a Core Audio or ASIO device to virtually any DAW applicaiton. All that is required is a computer with a Gig-E port.
