HA! That's not how it is in my parts! Most of the places that have their own soundguys take $150 off the top of what the band makes to pay the guy to sit around and drink and hit on girls all night! I've gotten to the point where I won't play with a venue's in-house soundguy unless I'm getting a garunteed flat rate too!

You're talking about what a soundman is SUPPOSED to do, not what (many) DO do.

But that's been my experience

Hey, you guys have been talking about the Presonous Studiolive board, but does anybody have any experience with the Phonic board aiming at the same market? Sorry, I don't remember the model number off hand, but there was a recent review in sound on sound or something I think, and it looked like it could have some workflow advantages over the Studiolive and also costs only around $1500.
