Just a few questions. Could you find out what model that Sennheiser mic is, also how is it routed to your mixer? What model mixer are you using, how many inputs are being used and for what?
ChipWhat happened is that your bass player has lost the ability to utilize mic technique to mix himself in as he used to.Headset mics are great for those vocalists who are on top all the time, or are backing all the time, but not both, unless you've got a list of songs where he's lead and backing. You'll also have to run his AUX's for monitors post fader if that's an option or you'll just be mixing for house, and the vocalists are going to need to have you mix the monitors also.C.
Now might be the time to mention wireless IEM's.C.
We just briefly talked about this over the weekend. I've been pushing for this for quite some time. This is an everyone's welcome, high energy, fun, "party" type performance band that talks to and feeds off the audience. This (other than cost) is the main reason they are hesitant to go this route.I planned on pushing this even further this weekend when I bring up these issues again. You are right on, though...
