UMC Audio Week 9

Week 9 Total hours 12.5

CSAV finished installing the sound systems in both buildings this week.

John from CSAV returned Thursday morning to fix the monitor sends with a firmware update but this didn’t solve the problem of the monitor mixes being unaffected by the fader or mute button. There was a setting involving pre and post fader that affected the mix bus channel instead of the send channels. Both systems have the latest firmware now so they match.

At CUMC service this week, rhythm guitarist played the hymns today. NEUMC service the iPad wasn’t connected to the sound board after the firmware update. Fixed it after service by making the IP address on the iPad match the X32.
