My church has a SL 24.4.2 (not AI) and we are using a HearBack system for in-ear monitors. I don't know specifics about how the HearBack is connected. But, I know that the board connects to a HearBack controller, then to on-stage monitor mixers via CAT5e cable. Headphones are plugged into the monitor mixers and we can control the actual mix through Q-Mix.
I recently purchased a SL 24.4.2AI for home use. I want to do something similar to this. I want to get some input and suggestions on budget hardware to make it work, as well as direction on tips/tricks to get it setup correctly. I've looked into EarMix, Dante networking, AVB networking, and RM networking, but I'm having a hard time understanding it all.
At this point, I'm almost literally a one-man band. I have a very small studio in my home. My drums are too far away from the board to make mixing changes. When (if) I get a band together, I want each member to be able to have independent control of their headphone mixes. I realize this is pretty much standard operating procedure. I just need a few fingers pointing me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance,
