I want to start using a Presonus StudioLive 16 channel desk to multitrack all my band's shows. We have our own soundguy now, but almost all the venues we play have house sound systems. Optimally, we'll be able to just plug our SL into their mains and monitors, and mix right from it. But in situations where that is not practical, we'll need some sort of splitter. I found this 1-space ART 8-channel splitter with ground lifts for a couple hundred bucks; I'm thinking that two of those in a 2-space rack plus two of these 16-channel 15-foot XLR dual fantails would get it accomplished fairly inexpensively and versatilely. Am I on the right track? My goal is to be able to just put the ART's in between the house mics and the house snake, and be able to deal with any ground issues if there are any. I see there is a "poor man's splitter snake" from Audiopile as well, but that has no ground lift and I'm not sure if it would pass phantom power to the mics from the FOH board. Or is there a better way?
