My brother and I (classic rock duo) pulled off a great performance with great sound over July 4 weekend. I play drums and my brother plays Guitar and sings. He ran through a digital multitracker and incorporated backing guitar/keys tracks & vocals to his live lead voc/guit. I ran my drums thru a small mixer with built-in effects. It sounded incredible! I think I need more comfortable monitors for the click-track though. Any suggestions? Please email me. Thanks Bose! -Ken
Good to see you back again MI! Glad to hear the gig went well, i've been wondering.
Maybe a set of Shure in-ear monitors, put in one or both. They can be had for as little as $100. With a little creative routing you can get all signals into your own mixer and feed the phones.
I have another post about that. here is an excerpt:
I take the LINE OUT XLR jack (or first click into the INSERT jack of each PAS mic channel (3 vocals and kick) and run them into channels 1-4 of my mixer. So, I have all vocals and kick for my in-ears.
Channels 3 & 4 on the PASs are where guitars and drum overheads go. They have NO lines OUT, so
I take available lines out of the Bass POD and the 2 Guitar POD XTs into the mixer for the instrument monitors and bring them into the stereo line ins on the mixer (using Left input make it a mono signal in the in-ears.
That still leaves me 3 inputs available on my mixer. Those are for my drum overheads, and I then run the drum mic signal out of the AUX send(s) on the mixer into channel 4 of a PAS(s) for the overheads.
So you see all instruments appear in my own mixer. I can route those signals wherever I need. The mackie has separate headphone volume control from the master...very flexible. It also has ALT 3/4 mix out jacks so I can run the mic OUTS thru that as well if needed.
