Fortunately I have some time here, but as I'm doing a preliminary new setup for our X-Frame, I'm running across a compilation error that the SoundEngine hardware has been exhausted, and showing the following DSP cycle usage: A: 93%, B: 78%, C: 82%.
Memory usage is: A: 3%, B: 2%, C: 25%
Attached is an image of the schematic I'm currently at - I've already removed a bunch of elements including parametric EQs, and eliminated 3 sets of I/O (stage monitors) trying to free up the processors... I'm wondering if anyone else has ideas regarding what I can remove to get this to work, as I seem to be down to my primary FoH and 2 lonely sets of "B" speakers located in a different area. You'll also notice at this point that I've removed all level controls, external BoB triggers that I had programmed, meters, and more as a further attempt at lowering cycle usage... Some of these items would be very handy to put back in, as there are some external triggers and level controls I'd like to use.
- Inputs A and B are the mains from the mixer, feeding through to biamped speakers on the left/right (internal outputs: lows on out 1 and 3, highs on 2 and 4) as well as mono summing for a biamped center cluster (low on Bob out 1, high on Bob out 2).
- Bob Inputs 1 and 2 are subgroup-fed subwoofers (cheaper mixer subgroups can only be assigned as a stereo group), mono summed, low passed, and sent to bob out 3.
- Bob inputs 3 and 4 are subgroup-fed "B" speakers, mono summed and then split two ways to bob outputs 4 and 5 (for two different locations/speaker types, hence the separate eq/limiter)
I know the original X-Frame is very old, outdated, and not really supported anymore, but if we had the budget to upgrade, believe me I would push for it and get a Digitool... So I'm working with what is available to me - an X-Frame and BoB which we are moving from a now-unused venue to an existing one for system improvement. (As it existed, even this old processor will be an improvement over the hodge-podged devices attempting to do what needed to be done)
