There have been reports from others, of sound cutting out during a show. 

 

Our band has experienced this as well.  For us, we lose all sound.  When this happens, the only remedy is to turn off the mixer, then turn it on again.  

 

After we restart the mixer, it has not happened again in the same show.  Now, before every show, I turn on the mixer until it finishes booting, then I turn it off and reboot for a second time, just in case.

 

There have been a few posts about a ribbon cable inside the mixer, that is very close to the metal back wall of the mixer.  On occassion (sudden movement, ect) the cable can touch the metal mixer wall and short the system.  Some guys have opened the mixer and put a strip of tape on the mixer wall, to stop the cable from touching.  This may or may not be related to the problem.
