In my class, with one other girl. Plug in the mixer, turn on the mixer, equalizer, compressor, amplifier. Connect three mics for singer, one for guitar, DI box for guitar, speakers. Coil everything nicely (it was a very small stage). That was a heady feeling. Then we tested to make sure there was soiund running through everything. Then tested each mic separately, and all together, for bothmonitor and speakers. Tried to blend it all nicely. Extremely heady. But it sounded awful. The performers were all the other girls in the class, and we couldn't sing well or play well. We took turns being the performers and the techs. But I did it. For sort of real.
