RE: plex repeater rig..

Hi Stephen,

Sounds interesting.  I have a couple of questions though ...

First, am I to assume this is basically for a studio rig, not a live
rig, right?  It would seem a bit complicated trying to make these patch
changes in the middle of a set, or have you set it up to make it easy to
modify on the fly?

Second, how do you have your other items (compressor, etc.) wired into
the patchbay?  Do you just try to always have compression for example,
the last thing, just before you send the signal to the EDP or Repeater?

Thanks for sharing your configuration info.
