after a few gigs with my current two piece (guitar and Synth with baking track from laptop) and I am really struggling for a solution.
basically at gigs for one reason or another, one of us ends up not being able to hear themselves in the monitor well and it makes the whole thing (again, with a backing track) a bit of a mess.
I really don’t understand IEM’s apart from being told that not every venue is “set up” for them. That being said, we aren’t playing big gigs or anything that would justify such things (we are just about getting more than a line check). We just simply need to have a bit more of a grasp of what’s going on.
I thought about whether we could have a mixer onstage and still send our instruments to the desk after each getting a feel to some ear buds or something, I don’t know if/how this would work.
beyond that I just don’t know if there’s something that I’m not thinking of, Can anyone offer any help?
