pictures from my side of tribute 😀
tuesday: (i believe) a basic setup with the ADAT and 003 was done while i was away. my lecturer had told me to go home since there was nothing that i could do/help with. earlier that day i was merely the keeper of all bags lol.
wednesday: FOH + MON line checks and rundowns.
- the ADAT failed to work. got another from the FOH rack.
- buzzes coming into PT from the ADAT channels, even though the ADAT was turned off. problem came from the optical cables.
- SM2 failed to load.
- signals were coming in, but into the wrong channels. signal flow got mixed up.
- frustrated. why: because a) i only had 16 channels to work with and i’ve distributed them very nicely in each medley; b) i’ve always had problem with understanding the signal flow of a certain system. when i finally understood everything, and things still managed to go wrong, i just. yes.
- tweeted & whatsapp-ed S. says he’d come as soon as possible with his Saffire. (YESSSSS!)
- S came and we started over from scratch. Learned that I have 26 channels instead of 16 to work with. (DOUBLE YESSSSS!)
- S set up everything. I mostly watched because (again) I had problem tryna understand the signal flow behind the new setup.
- he left, leaving behind the channel distribution notes for me to finish up the next morning.
thursday (THE DAY):
- curious with S’ configuration. read back the night before’s messages and tried to do the rest of the setup myself.
- mission self-configured channel distribution: SUCCESS.
- S came with RCA cables for the OH. the ONLY part of the entire setup that I still don’t understand until today.
- wait, why are Caleb and Daryll’s waveforms IDENTICAL? oh. whoops.
- during the 1st set of the concert: WAIT. WHY IS BV2 NOT RECORD-ENABLED. NOOOOOO
- before the 2nd set of the concert: created a new track for BV2.
- the rest of the night went by smoothly.
what an experience. 😀
