Programming advice needed

Postby Liampike » 01 Jul 2018, 08:27

Hi. I’ve quite new to Avolites and up till now have been busking lots of live music. I’m using a Quartz and a fader wing.

I’ve got a talent show coming into my venue in the next few weeks. 20 acts and all are going to want certain looks/cues. Each act is rehearsing in the day and then the show is in the evening of the same day. The rehearsals won’t be in the same order as the show.

I was thinking of building a separate cue stack for each act and running the show from this. Any advice or is there a better way to programme the show?

if you're not used to cuelists it can be tricky.

In your case I'd busk as you're used to it but I would record one or two looks (playbacks) per act so you can switch in an instant.

Cuestacks make sense if you know exactly what is going to happen and when. They provide better timing but take away flexibility...
