We would like to continue using our StudioLive 32.4.2AI console, however, our 32x8 snake is starting to fail and we are dropping channels. So our question is, can we use our existing console (and patch panel) and connect it (the patch) to an 8x8 SB and then to another 8x8 SB on the stage using the AVB connections?
So we would route the inputs from the on-stage SB to the outputs on the SB at the console.
I hope that makes sense. Please let me know if you have any questions that would help clarify the question.
Thanks in advance.
Follow-up: I have looked at the RM's and it appears they come with a "control" card, I'm guessing those would need to be changed out to AVB cards as well? If that's the case and they all have the AVB cards, I could run an RM16AI to both stage left and right, have 2 (or a switch on stage for one CAT6) CAT6 run back to the sound booth to an AVB switch and plug the console into the AVB switch?
