In spite of what many folks may say about the job--I love doing monitors and find it easier and more challenging and fun then FOH...even though a monitor guy can be at any one time have 6-20 different mixes going while FOH may only have 1-6 mixes going on. A Monitor operator mixes the bands on-stage wedges, in-ears and side fill monitors so they can hear to blend the music and vocals. A montor mix can be complex or simple...once set--there is little changes you do during a show--but you don't EVER leave your post in my book..the monitor desk is always manned...soundman1024 said:
koncept said:I'm interested....can someone provide a flow diagram (sample disagram) of how this would be setup with the equipment on stage, the FOH mixer and the monitor mixer. I am a bit confused on how you get the signal to both consoles without using a split snake (i know the wording is wrong but basicaly you can send the snake to two consoles)
second what type of mixers would be used?
