Robert and Sheldon, Thank you so much for taking the time to do these webinars and posting them online to watch later, I was busy working (not such a bad thing) and could not attend the initial broadcast. I was particularly looking forward to the VENUE/Pro Tools installment... It answered many questions I had about workflow and implementation.
As you say; "exciting times in live audio" indeed.

A few questions:

Are the I/O limitations of 18 tracks on LE due to the Firewire interface? I'm just having a hard time wrapping my head around 32 workable tracks being limited to 18 out of the FOH/Mixrack. Any work around on this?

Say if a producer (or studio engineer) sends me the plug in files to import to VENUE, do I need the i-lock authorization associated with that plug in to install it?

To Robert: BBQ... Texas Dry Rub or Carolina Sauce?

Hi Jon,

The webinars are a blast. We look forward to doing more in the future.

The 18-track limitation is due to the audio driver, not the FireWire format itself. At the time FWx was released we were able to re-purpose the 18-track driver used on the Digi 002, which maxes out at 18 I/O. To enable more I/O is a complete driver re-write from scratch, so we need to balance this huge amount of work against all of the other cool things folks are asking us for. In the meantime, consider using a combo of stems and direct channels as Rob suggested during the webinar, or using an HD rig.

Not sure if you mean the plug-in installer itself, or just the plug-in preset files (which Rob mentioned in the webinar). Either way, you'll need an iLok auth to run the plug-in on the console. You'll be able to transfer the preset files without authorizing the plug-in (so you can do some prep ahead of time), but won't be able to apply the settings until the plug-in is authorized and running.

I try and register and it will not let me enter a state. Therefore I cannot complete registration.

Hi,

Try registering again and first select the country you live in, then the state/province choices will appear. If that doesn't work, please let us know what country you're in.

wasn't there supposed to be a webinar on July 30th?

I thought I saw that on the schedule, and I was planning to watch the archive of it but I can't find it. Did it not happen? Am I thinking of something else?

Hi Daniel,

The webinars are archived here:
Live Sound Webinars

The most recent session was on July 30, discussing D-Show versus Profile control surfaces. The session is archived at the link above, but I notice it has the wrong date (6/25). Sorry for the confusion - we'll get that fixed...

Hi,
Glad you enjoyed it. There isn't a specific webinar thread, so take a look at the existing threads or do a quick search, and if that doesn't answer your questions feel free to start a new thread.

Sheldon
