    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

    in-ear monitoring
    Jack Kontney 03/14/12 01:29 PM,
    In-ear monitors (IEMs) are radically different from the traditional floor wedge method of providing a monitor mix to performers. For many artists and engineers, they are the ideal monitor solution. But for others, they’re simply a method of trading one set of problems (extreme volume, tiny sweet spot, feedback potential) for another (sense of isolation, can’t hear amps or audience). Clever engineers and earphone manufacturers have come up with various methods of handling these issues, all of which revolve around… View this story

    When it comes to maximizing their mix, streamlining workflow and meeting the needs of their artists, few monitor engineers are willing to say they’re doing anything entirely unique. Still, every artist has different demands, and that informs choices made in monitor world.
