    Wireless PA controlled remotely by tablet

    We've had our XR18 for 18 months or so - done a fair few gigs and it's great. I play with no backline and IEMs and use the in-built 'sansamp' effect for my bass plus the usual parametric EQ, comp etc. All racked up with my wireless guitar Rx and IEM Tx - makes for a very easy and consistent sounding setup (plus i mix the band out front during soundcheck) Get a dual band external router, set it to 5GHz only, use any compatible 5GHz tablet (i use an Amazon Fire 10 with a side-loaded google store so i can use Mixing Station Pro which i find better than the official app) and jobs a gud'un

    Band Banners - is there such a thing as ....??

    That’s what I’m after, thanks for the link 😀

    Band Banners - is there such a thing as ....??

    I’m looking at getting some acoustically transparent scrims printed with our band logo to magnetically attach to our PA cab fronts (which rather helpfully have steel grilles). Most places we play there’s nowhere to attach a backdrop/banner and setting up a frame to hold such things is one more bit of kit we haven’t got the time/inclination to put up/carry to gigs when we already have 4x cars full of stuff already. Pop-up banners are OK I suppose but they remind me of the function/wedding band I used to play with so I’d rather avoid the association this time 😉

    Bass players who take their hand off the neck

    I took my hand off the neck to write this reply mid-gig but then realised the futility of this discussion....

    Interesting FRFR story..

    i'll dig it out and have a look - it's not very powerful at all but runs the XR mixer windows software just fine (i think we even recorded a gig with it once via USB)

    Interesting FRFR story..

    i use a Amazon Fire 10 tablet (with a side-loaded app store for Mixing Station Pro) for wireless mixing and a cheapo windows tablet with add on keyboard which can be hardwired to the router in case of wireless issues (not that it's ever happened but a wired backup is always a good idea)

    re. the XR mixers : you can switch the FX channels / inserts on/off i believe via a midi footswitch but i haven't done that myself (yet). I think some people have used the Behringer FCB1010 to do this and there are some custom made switch boxes available

    Geddy Lee pedal

    Oh, cool. At least they’ve put it in a ‘proper’ case and not that ghastly one with the cheap and wobbly control pots they use for the fly-rig / dug preamp. Will be interested to hear it and how it differs from my Sansamp bass driver pedals.

    Interesting FRFR story..

    I go direct from wireless into an XR18 (with IEMs & no backline) & have done so for the past 8-9 months at quite a few gigs. I split my input into two channels (one for FOH, one for IEMs), insert the stereo Sansamp guitar effect Into the input channel and run a cab sim on the IEM side and none on the FOH) and it works for me with pretty much zero setup time (as it’s all racked). I also use the inbuilt parametric EQ, compressor and noise gate on the separate channels - it basically replaces the Helix LT I was using as a glorified non-changing pedalboard and now I have no cables, no buttons to press and it sounds the same at every gig and I couldn’t be happier The XR12/16/18 as a bass preamp is a great idea imho. I realise this doesn’t have much to do with FRFR (apart from possibly using the PA) but I did use a Yamaha DBR15 as a stage monitor for a while using a similar setup (via an aux channel on the XR18) - it was only for the rest of the band to hear and now I just send the bass via their own monitors and the drummer has it via his IEMs and his P&D drum throne.

    Interesting FRFR story..

    I’ve been trying to convince our drummer who owns the band PA to sell his (albeit nice) Yamaha DXR12 tops and DXS12 sub for a pair of these but he’s not convinced (yet) - we run the whole band through the PA so I know it’s just a matter of time before he cracks ! He did say at practice last night that he’d like to hear a pair of 745s at a gig before making his mind up but trying to rent or find a pair to loan is a bit of a challenge. Might just get these and bypass the drummer !
