IEM sound affected by active bass into Reddi DI?
I recently joined a church orchestra that uses an Aviom system. In the previous church where I played the Reddi made such a huge difference I decided I had to use it wherever I played. However, I'm wondering about the effect it is having on my IEM sound. The bass in my IEMs is not deep and full but has too much treble. I can hear a tremendous amount of left-hand finger noise when shifting. The Aviom-16 personal mixer's bass and treble are at 12 o'clock. I use Future Sonics Atrio M5s as my IEMs. I tested their seal at a website. They are sealing as they should (high quality Sony headphones also recreate the lack of ideal sound).
My bass is a Sadowsky (active). I always run the volume at maximum. I only use 10-20% of the bass boost. Treble setting is at 40-50%. Sounds great through my practice headphones on my home system.
The bass is plugged directly into the Reddi unit. I have the level control on the Reddi set at 8 o'clock. Could it be possible that I am sending too much gain to the board, causing a hot signal that results in the over-sensitivity to left hand fingering and overall treble-sounding bass? (buffer over-load as some call it?)
Anyone else with a similar situation using an active bass and a Reddi to the FOH? What are your level controls on the Reddi?
Not the REDDI...
I'd be looking at what is going on at the board. The REDDI would only affect your tone in the sense that you would sound clear in the PA with perhaps more heft in your notes, but it would certainly NOT cut your lows. Your IEMs are also really good for bass so my guess would be for you to speak to whomever is working the board for your venue.
check to see if any changes were made at the mixing console at your input channel before it feeds the Aviom
