  • aD5 - Midas M32

    If you are using a aD5 live to FOH how are you getting around not having direct outs. The sound guy and I agree the sounds are great from the module however, not having direct out to separate snare from bass drum, toms, cymbals seems to be a hang up. We are using a crossover to send to the subs, but sound guy is still feeling limited if he wants to bump something up in a song. Such a bummer not having at least 4 direct outs.

      Tell the sound guy to treat it like it's program material. If you're playing to tracks (or playing break music), you're not receiving individual tracks -- you just get a stereo mix, and lo and behold it sounds absolutely fine in the mix.

      IMO, for 90% of gigs, direct outs are unnecessary and just the sound man wanting to feel useful

        At the last show i had a good professional soundman and a M32 desk, he asked me to make the cymbals a little quiter and softer, and he has more possibilities to push the whole kit, works good :-)) (Roland TD-15, Stereo Out)

          Then you must be able to miss the sounds of the AD5, these are certainly not the same as those of the EFnote.
