Manila, Philippines (April 26, 2021) — Favor Church in Manila, Philippines has been using a Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer to mix the church’s live services, at front of house and monitors, as well as for streaming its live online broadcasts.
“We pivoted quite quickly when COVID-19 hit,” recalled senior pastor James Aiton. “We had to take our church online, and we are also planning to try and get into a larger venue once the pandemic is over…. We needed a cost-effective system that we could copy and transport to future new campuses, both in the Philippines and other locations around the world. Choosing eMotion LV1 has been a great asset in helping our church, both in our physical service and our online service.”
Since the specific installation at Favor Church includes three LV1 consoles in a shared network setup, Waves’ application specialists helped the church’s technical staff plan the system’s design. FOH/Broadcast Engineer Dan Blaza explained, “We’re using three sets of 64-channel eMotion LV1’s for FOH, broadcast, and monitor mix. Two DSPRO StageGrid 4000 I/Os situated at the monitor position beside the stage, are shared via IO Sharing on the SoundGrid network connected with Cat 6 80-meter LAN cables to our FOH and broadcast mix LV1 systems, with 40 inputs and 24 outputs. We’re also using a Waves SoundGrid Extreme Server-C for redundancy, with a DSPRO StageGrid 1000 for added I/O and headphone monitoring, as well as for our separate broadcast mix. The DSPRO StageGrid 1000 is also being used for additional inputs and outputs for nearfield speaker monitoring and final mix output for our broadcast.”
Blaza added, “We may be moving between venues in the near future, so the LV1’s small footprint and portability gives us a future-proof setup. Another benefit is that our musicians can easily mix their own IEM wirelessly through Waves’ MyMon Personal Mixing App, which gives them independent on-stage direct control of their monitor mix.”
