Thanks yes in process via the online support ticket deal. Does a little cycle of working for 3 or 4 minutes, unresponsive, then lights out.Don't know if we actually did have a surge. Just talked to the lighting op and he said we didn't blow any breakers. The only thing that made me think that is the laptop freaking although it may have got something back from the board via the audio connection.
Oh well almost a flawless summer, but it couldn't have happened at a better time being the last gig and a DJ. If it was a band situation I would have been screwed for a bit and not a good note to go on for a gig I'm hoping to do again next year! I'm so glad I listened to that little voice and had a backup there.
Thanks for your response and lets hope it was just a freak thing!

I have board at home and was testing worked for a short period of time, now no system lights and totally unresponsive.
IDEAS? or just fried power supply?

So after using the SL24 for 7 weeks 4 days a week about 12-14 hours per day, I have to say I had a pretty flawless experience. Only 2 issues:
The first was a firewire order deal where no input appeared any where until I reconnected. Probably my fault.

The second was on the very last day. I do have a UPS in line. We may have been hit with some kind of bizarre voltage drop or surge. The Windows laptop came up with an orange screen of death which I have never seen. This laptop was not even connected to the mixer through firewire just audio.The SL24 became totally unstable and was switching between sample rates and randomly scrolling through FX presets and parameters were changing like it was possessed. VERY bizarre. Tried reseting twice with no avail.
Show which was luckily only a DJ had to go on. I had a Mackie analog under my riser as a backup all season which I had to pull out and hook up and use. BTW the ONLY time.
Pulled mixer out, disconnected power cable from AC, let it set for a few minutes reconnected and it seemed to be fine. Testing again today.
Any one ever experience anything like this?
If you do disconnect the power from AC pulling the plug totally. I think if I had done this all would have been fine.
I'm really not reading much into it especially as the laptop freaked in a way that I've never seen as well but wanted to throw it out there for everyones reference.

I received many compliments on the sound and the bands absolutely loved the on stage monitor mix via the ipad. I can't tell you how much time and hassle this saved us! Absolutely brilliant PreSonus! Now just give us programable mute groups via VSL and I'll be in heaven! LOL

Andrew,
Thanks that's the best right know.. Band subgroup turn aux's down manually. It's only 4 mixes I'm running from FOH. It would be nice if aux's had mutes though.
Another thing I miss from Yamaha land is individually selectable per channel and mix pre/post selection. Nice for the track act crap to run the backing tracks post so they fade in the monitors.
Probably impossible.
Enough bitching though it's a great board at a great price!!!!
Thanks,
John

PS-Week 3 four days and nights per week no gliches.!

Thanks all for your suggestions!
The only problem with the scene deal is you loose audio for a beat. In my setting there is constant sound.

Andrew,
Thanks for a great suggestion.
I think that's a feasible work-around for now.
Looking forward to hearing back from Presonus on the subject.
Regards,
John

Master Coders,
Any plans for mute groups via VSL for the SL consoles?
Is it even a possibility? Seems like the control is already there via firewire?
Thanks,
John

Fellow Users /Presonus
I'm a new user and owner of a SL24. I will be using it for the next 7 weeks Thursday - Sunday at the Bard College Summerscape Program in the Spiegel tent in Red Hook NY.
Thursday night was the pre-season opener and benefit with Rosanne Cash as the entertainment. All went very well and I was pleased with the sonics on the console. The system for the tent is a 4 x 4 JBL VRX rig with Meyers UPA as out & center fill.
I am running Waves Multirack as well but just used it for a Rverb for this event as I didn't want to experiment too much with a national act. I would appreciate any other users tips and experience in using the Multirack with the console.

My question is this. Are there any plans to put programmable mute groups when controlling the console via VSL? Wouldn't it be a simple code?
I"ve already created band subgroups but this does not mute the monitors. I'm running 4 mixes from FOH and I don't like the idea of creating mute scenes.
My console last year was a Roland 480 and I also use the Yamaha LS9 & MCL desks a lot. My initial impression after the first gig is I believe the SL sounds better then the Yamaha stuff. I think you need to be careful in running the board conservatively level wise as I do believe the mix bus will collapse when hit too hard
(as with all digital consoles IMHO) Other opinions on that?

Thanks,
John
