Re: MTRX/DADMAN output to multiple Spkr Outputs simultaneously with same stereo sourc
 
I used to have to do this years ago with certain rap clients when the Meyer HD1s wouldn't go loud enough. It was easy with the Trident console we had, as the speaker set switches on the monitor section were latching. I heard that after I left that studio, the next guy they had turned the HD1s up so loud that they vibrated off the stands and fell onto the floor, which required being sent back to Meyer to be repaired. I heard that when they got them back, they tied them down to the stands with ratchet straps :D:D:D

Sorry for the OT post.

Just my 2 cents; this is something I would never do because of all the phase and timing issues inherent in running multiple speakers with the same sound. I guess its 30+ years of live sound(IOW, this has way more chance of sounding bad than good):o

Indeed. Pick one set of monitors and turn them up ;)

Although, I suppose, perhaps you have a set in the live room for band listening, RainbowStudio used to have a very nice pair of B&Ws for this.

Thanks! I extrapolated from your example and got it working - it requires selecting a speaker set and then a folddown config. Using my little virtual Mom, I have those two buttons mapped to MIDI notes and via Keyboard Maestro can trigger it from one button on a Streamdeck. Very nice and super easy to set up!


I note several people saying that using two sets of speakers this way probably sounds bad... you are probably right. Anecdotally, this particular setup sounds awesome in my room... but again, haha, you are probably right. I'll do a bit more A/B'ing.


My nickname for the virtual MOM device is StepMOM. It does work very well... and it doesn't require a physical MOM. It shows up as a MOM in DADMan and I simply mapped the buttons to MIDI notes - it will listen to whatever MIDI controller you put in the config file. I am not sure what I will do with it... TBD!



Thanks!
