Morehead, KY (June 14, 2011)–Crosspoint Church, a portable church, recently got a half-dozen Aviom A-16II personal mixers for its worship band.
Using the Aviom personal mixers, band members are able to create their own customized mixes. In addition to the church’s Yamaha LS9-32 digital console equipped with an Aviom16/o-Y1 A-Net Interface Card, the band uses Shure SCL2 earphones with a few members using Fidelity Custom-Fit in-ear headphones.
A 100-foot Ethernet cable is run from the console to where a musician will plug in to his/her personal mixer. The band daisy chains one personal mixer to the next so that all band members receive a signal. Then, 14 channels are routed as direct outs from the console to the Aviom A-16IIs and have two mix stems (drums) routed to the two remaining channels.
“Aviom has reduced the technical details of having to run floor wedges, power amps, and large quarter-inch cable runs,” said Weylin Fairchild, worship leader. “Anyone who comes into the band just has to learn its simple setup process. In all, the reduced stage noise enhances the front of house sound—making each week an enjoyable service for attendees.”
