I am training a set of good volunteers on their Midas Pro2C system and I would like to know if I can either lock the gain and dynamics section. While they understand the signal flow of the board, they still need to train their ear and in order to avoid making mistakes during service. The Pastor has asked me for a way to lock the console which is something we did back when they had the Yamaha M7CL48; however, after reading the manual, I don't think such feature is available for the pro2. I can't even find a section where you have "user" profiles and manage what one can and cannot do. If this is indeed not available today in the latest firmware, how do I go about putting in a feature request?
Do you have to go wireless IEMs or can you do a hybrid of wired and wireless? I think if you were to use something like the Behringer P16 mixers which use a network cable, you can save a mix or two to add the effects you want. The wired p16 would go to the musicians who are stationary and the rest wireless. Or, still use the p16 route and then attach the wireless transmitter to the output of the p16 unit. This is often a benefit when you have someone on stage who likes to tweak their mix a lot through the set. I do agree that 16 mix buses is too little, especially with a 11 piece band and you hoping to do stereo IEMs.
