Routing multiple x32 and a s16
Maybe you guys can help me with a question. reason for this question is that I think the following setup would be possible, but I need to know for sure before getting in to it and go testing.
Right now we have a x32 as FOH mixer and it runs a AES50 cable to the stage with one S16. there is also running a small analog stagebox to the stage, because that was already there before the X32 came and is used for the mic for the preacher and other people who speak on the podium.
Is it possible to add a X32 rack to the mix, use the s16 as an extension to the rack (so that I still have 32/16 available, 16/8 from the Rack and 16/8 from the S16). and then use the AES50 to run all signals to FOH?
THe main point of the question is the extension part. DOes the Rack version has the possibility to see the channels of the 16 as "input 17/32 and output 9/16" and then rout all 32/16 to the FOH with one AES50?
My guess would be that it is.
So the routing on the Rack would be:
IN: CH 1-16 : Analog 1-16
CH 17-32: AES 50/A 1-16 on the S16
OUT 1-8: Analog 1-8
OUT 9-16: AES 50/A 1-8 on the S16
CH 1-32: AES50/B 1-32
OUT 1-16: AES50/B 1-16
That would be the basic routing, but I have to be able to rout individual output channels on the FOH to Analog OUT on the FOH, because our infrastructure has some cables for Broadcast and overflow rooms lying at the FOH desk.
Is this a possible setup?
