BluMunk Posted December 27, 2012 Share Posted December 27, 2012 My "for fun" band plays a variety of rock covers in a lot of small venues. It's usually a challenge fitting the six of us into whatever postage-stamp sized stage there is, and I am never, ever happy with my volume. We typically run vocals through a PA (no monitors), and everything else straight out of our amps. I sit my SM450 on the floor behind me somewhere so it serves both as my personal monitor and my sound out into the house. Sometimes I'll put it behind the drummer (who is behind me) so he can have some sort of monitor of something. At any rate, in these small quiet(er) gigs, I can never seem to find the sweet spot between "so soft I can't even hear myself" and "too freaking loud." When we play louder venues, most of my patches seem to be roughly at the right volume in relation to each other, but I just can't figure it out; maybe I really need a separate monitor placed really close for myself, as well as one for the house? Any thoughts/suggestions? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
