The Capsule gives them both the same sound. I use the wired most the time and the wireless gets out for bigger shows.
Bari Sax live - Audio Technica bass mic - Emotion D550
Recording - the AEA 84 Ribbon Mic is the bomb on all 4 saxes and flute. It makes any pre-amp sound great and mic placement is not touchy at all. Some mics have a bad proximity effect with close placement sounding very bottom heavy and playing more off the mic would get bright. This mic is full and even regardless of the size of the saxophone or mic placement.
6 Channel Stereo, Slider Channel Volumes, Bass and Treble, FX and Monitor, Pan controls on each channel. FX Return, Master L & R sends and 5 segment LED main level meter.
Back has individual Gain and Phantom switches, 1/4 and XLR inputs, 1/4 FX returns and MAIN output in 1/4.
Missing only XLR Main Outs and Headphone jack with seperate volume.
Effect - Lexicon MPX 200, 24 bit, dual processor.
The 3rd Space - Korg Tone Works 1 Space Tuner with cool lights is the current 3rd Space. Call me a wimp but I like being able to look down and see if my ears are working. This tuner is visible from accross the stage and makes loud funk/R&B gigs much easier.
Space 4 - Power Amp - 1 space an not a ton of power but works as a small PA and complete sax monitor system for live shows.
Countryman DI's round out the system and cover for the lack of XLR outs on the mixer.
