In Ear Monitors, Aviom System, and The Death of Third Party Hardware

Published by Loop Community on

Lets face it. We all know the benfits of an in ear monitoring system and many a small church sings the same tune – “I wish we had the funds for an Aviom System.” Consider the following price tag for 16 channels of in ear monitoring:

Aviom A-16II Personal Mixer $620.00 x 5 = $3,100 (1 for each musician)
Aviom A-16D Pro A-Net Distributor $1365.00 (Connecting the musicians to the input module)
Aviom MT-1 $31.00 x 5 = $155 (Mounting hardware)
Aviom AN-16/i Input Module $1195.00 (Standard 16 channel input module)

GRAND TOTAL = $5,815!       ZOWIE!!!

Well the party is over, Aviom. Say hello to Qmix.

Qmix is a highly affordable alternative for any church on a budget and is part of Studio Live by PreSonus. This system not only addresses personal mixer issues, but it does it with hardware most of you already have, It also provides a full channel strip on every channel and the ability to multi-track record every channel on the desk every weekend. Just the channel strip (EQ and Compression on every channel) alone is worth thousands in analog hardware.

Well… a picture tells a thousand words. Check this video out.

The cost for the same 16 channels from PreSonus?
PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 = $1,299.00

Need we say anymore? The Aviom alternative has arrived!
