Friday night I had a droopy mic boom late in the evening, so I went in early Saturday evening to fix it. I took my mic and the Bose remote (Velcro) from the stand and tightened everything up. I replaced the mic and remote and turned everything on and got ready for action. The room was full and moderately noisy so after a, “testing 1,2,3”, I boosted the master volume on the remote and added a little bass on my vocal thinking, ”Ah, that‘s better“. I do change the onboard controls on my guitar often through the night, depending on the model I am using. Saturday turned out to be one of those magic/fun gigs that makes you want to keep being an entertainer. At the end of the night, I turned the master volume all the way down on the remote and unplugged my guitar. I heard the loud pop, that I am sure is familiar to all of you when you unplug a hot guitar cord. I had worked the whole gig without my remote plugged in! I know it defaults to everything at 12 o’clock, so I guess the adjusting that I usually do throughout the night isn’t necessary.
Bose T1? Digitech Vocalist Live? Maybe I should just keep it simple and do my work. (Nah, I still want to try the new toys)
Isn't the human mind a wonderful thing...how we adjust to our surroundings!
What a great and light hearted report.
Too funny! Reminds me of the time I set up my 802 system and proceded to fine tune it with a 31 band eq. I was impressed with my abilities to improve the sound until about an hour into the show I noticed that I forgot to patch the eq into the rest of the system. I swear I could hear differences in the sound when I moved the eq sliders lol. Yes drumr, the mind is a powerful thing indeed.
