    :bassist:We were at Disney World last year and saw a good band. After the show, my son and I talked to one of the band members. He mentioned Aviom as an excellent monitor system.

    I was just wondering if someone could shed some light on the Aviom system. I know that a lot of folks use them in church settings. I just wondered how they would work for live gigs. Thanks in advance for your help!

    It's a mixer with no e.q. (per channel) and a pan control. There's a master 2 band e.q. control. Works great. They can save several different mixes. They're very common in the theater too.

    The cool thing about the aviom system is that everyone can have their own monitor mix at their fingertips. This is especially nice when you don't have a sound guy running a deticated monitor system. You can dial it up yourself. you can use it to run floor wedges, Wireless IEM, etc. We use them at church, and I would love a system for my band, but we don't really need such an extravagant system for a 3 peice band playing mostly small venues.

    I own one - only for times we have trained pro sound staff

    Tons of parts.... Tons of cable


    Digital mixer + rolls pm351 is easier

    Some things like the new mackie mixer can do the same thing

    We use the system at church. I don't really care how my bass sounds in the earphones, as it's overly compressed, and very bright, but I quickly got used to it. I'm sure if I were allowed to mess with the compressor on the bass feed, I could find a happier medium. It's actually pretty incredible. I store my mixes so I can get back to where I was instantly. I see Behringer has a knockoff of the Aviom system, for far less. But you have to also figure for a compressor for each channel. We use all 16 at church.

    There is also a similar system called mymix, it is a little more sophisticated than the avioms. There are plenty of videos on YouTube demonstrating its uses and capabilities

    I use them at church all time. However, its another system that takes time to set up. They take a bit to get used to, but the trick is to pan (left or right) most of the channels to get a good sound. Example, if a guitar is to your left then pan him in the left as well because a bit of his amp sound will come from that direction. Pan the drums, keys as well, but not the bass or lead vocals. If you leave the mix unpanned it sounds like one big mesh. I suggest the Future Sonics Atrio M5 earphones for bass=one large single driver not all that dual, triple, quad armatures that are good for singers, guitars etc.
