  1. A Quick Guide to Live Sound Matrix Mixing By Carey Davies - Allen & Heath
  2. <ul><ul><li>What is a Matrix? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How does it work? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What can you do with it? </li></ul></ul>7x4 ? 6x2 ? 11x8 ? 12x4 ? MATRIX ? A Quick Guide to Live Sound Matrix Mixing
  3. A basic definition: A ‘matrix’ is a set of lines that cross at right angles crosspoint A grid to route inputs to outputs where the lines cross Input Output
  4. A console works like a big matrix. Input channels route to mix buses. Now add an output Matrix The Matrix Mix bus The matrix routes the group and LR outputs to additional ‘matrix’ outputs.

  5. The Matrix is presented in one of 3 ways: <ul><ul><li>As a ‘mixer’ in a mixer, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Like an Aux send, or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>As a stand-alone mixer </li></ul></ul>
  6. Layout 1 A mixer in a mixer GL2400 The Matrix
  7. Matrix section Group masters L,R,M masters Aux masters Monitoring, Talkback Sub grouping A mixer in a mixer A look at a typical master section:
  8. We build a matrix ‘grid’ where several sources can be routed to several matrix outputs. crosspoint The sources usually include the group mixes, LRM masters, and inputs to add in external signals. Signals mix to the outputs through level controls at the crosspoints. Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4
  9. A mixer in a mixer Masters Mutes, AFL Sources 7x4 Matrix Now add the other source controls, Add the master controls, And route to the matrix output sockets This example is referred to as a ‘7x4’ matrix. It has 7 sources and 4 matrix outputs Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4 Outputs
  10. Layout 2 A bit like Aux sends from the masters GL4800 The Matrix Sends from the groups and LRM Matrix masters
  11. 11x4 Matrix Insert point Delay, EQ, limiter The signal path Patch in processing devices Matrix masters This example is referred to as an ’11x4’ matrix. It has 11 sources and 4 matrix outputs Matrix1 Matrix2 Matrix3 Matrix4 Grp1 Grp2 Grp3 Grp4 Grp5 Grp6 Grp7 Grp8 L R M Sends to matrix
  12. Layout 3 Stand-alone matrix mixer iDR-8 Example - A DSP mix processor such as the
  13. Matrix mixer Crosspoint matrix A matrix of many inputs to many outputs
  14. Matrix mixer Adds processing such as speaker crossovers, delay and time alignment, room and device EQ, noise gates, compression and protection limiting Crosspoint matrix
  15. Matrix mixer Adds remote control such as network, wall plates, fader controllers, MIDI, touch panels, and more… 16x16 Matrix This example has 16 inputs and 16 outputs
  16. A look at what you can do with it: The Matrix – a toolbox of useful outputs: <ul><li>Extra mix outputs </li></ul><ul><li>Combine L+R for mono </li></ul><ul><li>Live recording </li></ul><ul><li>Delay fill speakers </li></ul><ul><li>Cry room feed </li></ul><ul><li>Hearing loop feed </li></ul><ul><li>Backstage monitor </li></ul><ul><li>Mono or stereo IEM </li></ul><ul><li>Headline/support console link </li></ul><ul><li>Broadcast feed </li></ul><ul><li>Video feed </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced image stereo fills </li></ul><ul><li>Create stereo Auxes </li></ul><ul><li>Add room ambience </li></ul>Equipped and ready!
  17. The Matrix – many advantages: <ul><li>Each output has an independent level trim </li></ul><ul><li>Create mono or stereo feeds </li></ul><ul><li>Create feeds with reduced stereo image </li></ul><ul><li>Create a different balance to compensate for the acoustics </li></ul><ul><li>Add room or stage ambience </li></ul><ul><li>Add stereo presence to a mono aux </li></ul><ul><li>Insert processors such as delay, EQ, limiting… </li></ul>No job impossible!
  18. Yes, I can do it! I need a feed… So when the video guy comes up just before the show… You are ready!
  19. Now, a few application examples
  20. Application 1 Extra LR outputs
  21. Application 1 Extra LR outputs L R Matrix1 Matrix2 L R You can also reduce the stereo image To feed additional L and R speakers Simply turn up L in Matrix 1 and R in Matrix 2 Add a little L to Matrix 2, and R to Matrix 1 Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4
  22. Application 2 Create a Mono Fill
  23. Application 2 Create a Mono Fill L R Matrix1 M Mix L and R together to one matrix output Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4
  24. Application 3 Create a Delay Fill
  25. Application 3 Create a Delay Fill L R Matrix1 Fill Fill Rear stalls, under balcony intelligibility And EQ Start with just the vocals and quieter instruments Compensate for the delay between the speakers Patch in a delay unit, and EQ to filter out some LF and HF Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4 Time = 1ms/ft Delay
  26. Application 4 Live Recording
  27. Application 4 First, consider the live gig… Introducing the band
  28. Application 4 The band plays The instruments are so loud, the voice and keys are lost…
  29. Application 4 So, we need some PA Add PA speakers
  30. Application 4 The vocals and quieter instruments are faded up Balance the sound
  31. Application 4 The listener hears both the stage sound and PA sound The PA mix not ideally balanced for the recording. Too much vocal, not enough drums and guitar… Stage sound PA sound
  32. Application 4 We need to re-balance the mix for the recording The solution is to use the matrix
  33. Application 4 Live Recording Compensate for the stage sound Add room ambience Room microphones Start with the stereo PA mix The recording is now properly balanced and includes live ambience Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4
  34. Application 5 In-ear Monitor Mix An application for the matrix on a monitor console A solution to the problem of ‘not enough Auxes’ For example: 6 Auxes = 6 Wedges 4 Matrix = 4 mono IEM or 2 stereo IEM Total = 10 monitor mixes GL2400
  35. Application 5 Use Groups to add ‘more me’ Add stereo room ambience Start with a general stereo mix In-ear Monitor Mix Room microphones Use Groups to add more of requested sources Closed ear means the musician needs the full mix Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4
  36. Application 5 The Matrix is a quick way to create mono or stereo in-ear monitor mixes
  37. Application 6 Convert a Mono Aux to Stereo Add stereo instruments and presence to a mono Aux mix Another way to create stereo in-ear monitor mixes
  38. Add a general stereo mix Patch an Aux into two matrix inputs Use Groups to add reverb and ambience Application 6 Convert a Mono Aux to Stereo Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4
  39. Application 7 Link Consoles Link headliner and support act consoles into the same PA
  40. Application 7 Route external LR to the PA Route LR to the PA Link Consoles to the PA Headline act console Feed the PA from Matrix 1 and 2 Support act console R L The two consoles mix with independent level control via the matrix Ext in Grp 1 Grp 2 Grp 3 Grp 4 L mix R mix Matrix 1 Matrix 2 Matrix 3 Matrix 4
  41. And the list goes on…
  42. In Summary: <ul><li>The Matrix is a useful set of extra outputs </li></ul><ul><li>It lets you create an intelligible mix for fill speakers </li></ul><ul><li>It lets you create a better balanced live recording </li></ul><ul><li>It adds to the capability of a monitor console </li></ul><ul><li>It overcomes the problem of ‘not enough Auxes’ </li></ul><ul><li>And… it is available on most ALLEN & HEATH consoles! </li></ul>No job impossible!
