System Example C: Connecting stageboxes to two Live consoles via MADI

  1. Follow the instructions in System Example A to connect the stagebox(es) to the Master console. This console will have analogue input gain control and access to any audio outputs. The second console will be the Slave console and only be able to receive a post analogue gain signal over MADI, but can compensate for any analogue gain changes digitally to maintain a consistent gain structure (see the Gain Sharing section for further details).
  2. Connect each stagebox MADI port 3 (Out only) to the second (Slave) Live console using a single 75Ω BNC coax cable (max 75m, conforming to spec defined in the Installation Guide).
  3. If a redundant MADI connection is required, ensure each stagebox MADI port 3 is connected to an odd numbered port on the second console and connect each stagebox MADI port 4 (Out only) to the next console MADI port (e.g. stagebox ports 3 & 4 to Slave console ports A1 & A2 respectively).
  4. Set the second (Slave) console to clock from the MADI port connected from the stagebox, as described in the main Clocking section.
  5. If a redundant MADI connection is being used, turn on Redundancy Status for the relevant pair of MADI ports in the second console's I/O page.
  6. The Master console will clock the stagebox, which will in turn will clock the Slave console.
