Let's Try This Again?

The replacement mixing board arrived from Seattle this week.
(Mackie Onyx 24-4)
After the last one melted 5 minutes before showtime I took the precaution of setting the new one up in our kitchen and running it for 3 hours, then shutting it down for 30 minutes, then running it for another hour, etc until the beer was gone.
Used it tonight and there were zero issues and zero smoke.
Sounded different compared to all the Mackies I have used in the past, but that's to be expected and in no way was it's sound worse.
I just need to get used to the new mic preamps and EQs, then continue balancing the rest of our gear to it.

This picture of Bella has nothing whatsoever to do with the story.

Is Bella yawning or pretending to be la chupacabras?

Keith Alan K said...

Bella is doing #1.

Albatross said...

Wow, your dog makes those faces when she pees? Mine just looks satisfied.

Albatross said...

Of course, she does look funny when it's #2. And then I look mad, because it's usually right after I've already scooped the yard.

Keith Alan K said...

Uhhh...Bella was yawning, which was the #1 option in Dave's comment. Jeez!
(Thanks for nibbling on my straight line, Alba t'oss!)

And she isn't my dog.
She belongs to my bro-in-law Ray, who I'm sure y'all will get to meet at the First Annual SA Blogger Burger Bash.

Sorry! Couldn't resist!
