Seattle, WA (February 1, 2013)—Lakeland, TN-based TechLifeLine Productions recently purchased four Behringer X32 digital mixing consoles, utilizing the purchase most recently for Christian artist John Angotti’s annual Christmas concert at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Memphis.
The concert featured gospel, hip-hop and top 40 performers, bringing together groups from local Catholic high schools, a 140-member choir, a small orchestra and a four-piece band. The event was also broadcast live over www.mycatholicvoice.com. TechLifeLine President Kiley Butler brought three X32 consoles for FOH, monitors and broadcast.
“The real benefit of the triple X32 solution was the ability to split and route all of the signals using only the digital routing inside the X32,” commented Butler. “Utilizing the X-Control for our laptops also greatly sped up the process.”
The center point for the production's signal flow was at the X32 being used for monitors. Monitor engineer Brandon Armbruster set his console as the master clock for the other two consoles. Using the AES50 routing tabs (A and B), all 32 analog inputs were sent to the FOH and broadcast boards. A CAT5 connection was then made from monitor to FOH. Four mix signals-Main L, Main R plus two matrices were sent back to the Monitor board via the X32 P16 digital outputs thus eliminating the need for a send snake from FOH to the power amps located backstage. Finally, the AES50A on the broadcast audio console was connected to the AES50B on the monitor console.
