    in-ear monitoring
    Mike Sokol 04/07/16 03:48 PM,
    Recently an attendee of one of my workshops e-mailed about problems he’s having in providing a bass guitar mix over a personal monitoring system utilized by a 4-piece band, all of whom wear in-ear monitors. The system has one transmitter feeding four receivers, receiving a simple split-track mix with all vocals on one channel and all instruments on the second channel. (Note that the bassist is plugging directly into the snake via an active DI box without any amplifier or… View this story

    Priory, an up-and-coming electropop band from Portland recently signed by Warner Bros, utilizes Metric Halo ULN-8 integrated devices both live and in the studio. “These days, I feel like the only way for a band to succeed is to be self-contained – the band has to be able to take care of everything for itself,” says producer/engineer/musician Brandon Rush, who, together with long-time friend Kyle Sears, fronts Priory. “The Metric Halo ULN-8 contains mic pres, converters, routing logic, and DSP,… View this story

      1) Both Ears Or None. Using only one ear encourages much higher sound levels. Good custom molds provide 20 to 25 dB of isolation, allowing lower monitoring levels for artists, and reduced stage noise to compete with front of house. Mixed mode monitoring combining wedges and personal monitors ultimately results in higher overall SPL. 2) Hard-Wired Equals Hi-Def. Wired personal monitors will always sound better than wireless. In addition to loss of stereo separation and frequency response, multiplexed stereo… View this story

    Ten important things to be aware of in the quest for optimum results with in-ear monitoring: Coordination. TV broadcasts are the dominant feature of the local RF spectrum. Online resources like the Sennheiser Frequency Finder, which uses a ZIP code, and the FCC’s database to provide a list of local TV broadcast stations and their signal strength, helps users tune wireless systems to interference-free frequencies, removing much of the guesswork. Antennas. Most wireless in-ear monitoring transmitters come with a simple… View this story

    Kent Margraves 03/06/14 03:16 PM,
      Many worship venues have made the transition from “wedges” to “ears” for stage monitoring purposes, and often find that this can be a surprisingly tricky process. Essentially, wedges are loudspeakers that are laid sideways and angled up at the performers. The sound content or “mix” in each monitor, or group of monitors, is customized for the performers’ needs and each often have a much different balance than the house sound mix. In-ear monitor systems have become popular in recent… View this story

    Drummer Queen Cora Dunham, currently on tour with Beyoncé, is utilizing a Sensaphonics 3D active ambient IEM system. “I started using the Sensaphonics 3D in 2007 when I was with Prince,” Dunham notes, “and I’ve been using them ever since. It’s an amazing system, so versatile and comfortable – much better than regular in-ears.” The 3D IEM system uses embedded microphones to capture the on-stage sound surrounding the performers, allowing them to hear everything around them while their ears remain… View this story
