A Music Director's Epic Tale: Les Miserables

Chapter 4 : Musical Gear

4.9 - Complete Diagram Of Gear Setup

A picture is certainly worth a thousand words! To tie everything together from the previous sections of this chapter, I've created an overview diagram of the entire gear setup.

Gear Setup Diagram

Diagram showing all gear used during live performance. The PC which runs MIDI Maestro is connected via USB to the 3x3 MIDI Interface - it is connected to one MIDI input (the controller keyboard for MIDI Maestro) and three MIDI outputs (the synthesizers). The synths in turn are connected to the Mackie mixer, which also takes a feed from the live bass amp. This audio feed is mixed and sent to the soundboard (and another feed goes to the monitoring amps in the pit). A video feed from the PC is sent, via splitter, to two video monitors.
