Digital Audio Labs Live Mix Review

Get in the mix

Church stage setups are a unique space and require unique equipment. Digital Audio Labs wants to help you hear better. In this post I'm going to take a very in-depth look at this system to help you decide if it's right for your church.

I've broken the video down into parts to help you skip what you aren't interested in. The software chapter is by far the most in-depth so you might want to schedule some time to watch that one. At the end of the post I've listed some pro's and con's.

Part 1: Introduction

Part 2: What is a Personal Monitoring System?

Part 3: Types of Personal Monitoring Systems

Part 4: The Hardware

Part 5: The Software

Part 6: Recap

Pros

24 channel system allows for greater flexibility, especially when mixing individual drums

Reduced stage clutter with two mixes on one unit (could be a con if you are spread out)

Global labeling

Firmware updates may improve it even more

Cons

Effects are global so you can't add reverb to single instrument

Solo feature is inconvenient to access

Potential noise problems when not using shielded CAT 5 cable

Conclusion

The Digital Audio Labs Live Mix is a great system. In fact, I purchased one for our church after demoing them here. As I mentioned in the recap video we initially had some noise issues, but Digital Audio Labs customer service is outstanding. That's often makes or breaks my endorsement and I'm happy to say they passed with flying colors. Anybody else have experience with these?
