    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Evaluating your monitor settings is a crucial step during the sound check and during the church service.  Consider these three signs your monitor mix is bad or had gone bad. 1.

    Encompassed in today’s live show are several individual shows, for example, light shows, laser shows and more. It’s not uncommon for each of these independent shows to have its own set of engineers. The focal point is the band/artist, and they’re the reason all of the other shows are taking place. And, it should be pointed out that most of these “shows within the show” are presented for the audience. Good engineers realize that the monitor mix is a show… View this story
