Yet another IEM query...
This is my current planned scheme for a wireless IEM setup for both bass & guitar with a few noob questions.
Both actual answers and other comments are welcome and appreciated.
My hope is to build a small portable system that will work for both solo quiet practice
and live use with others. I'm more or less on my own and need a system that will be
able to integrate into various other existing systems at different times, but I have no specific
requirements for compatibility.
I'll be using an iPad to provide the stereo instrument feed via a Guitar Jack 2 which I'll probably
update at some point and I'll also be buying earbuds, but those subjects would best be discussed
in another thread.
The Plan so far:
Stereo monitor feed, stereo instrument, mono ambient mic ( if needed ) into Rolls PM351, with
stereo instrument to mains from PM351 DI passthru.
Question 1: Is DI out from Rolls PM 351 equal or better in sound quality to that from a
Radial Engineering ProAV2 for bass&guitar? Will I be disappointed in the sound? I like the sound
of the ProAV2 well enough even though it has lesser bandwidth than the more expensive Radials...
I can keep the ProAv2 I already have if it sounds better, but that would be unnecessarily
redundant if the Rolls is adequate...
I realize that this is a subjective question...
I plan on driving a MiPro 808 T/R Wireless IEM - http://www.freqcitysound.com/mipro808tr.html/
from the Rolls PM351. I'm not 100% sold on the MiPro, but I'm strongly leaning that way after
too much reading of reviews on the interweb.
Question 2 is a compound question for MiPro owners/users/experts and is in regard to the built in limiting.
Is the built in limiting good enough for hearing protection or do I need an external limiter?
Does the built in limiting screw up the sound in any way. Is it defeatable/adjustible?
If I need an external limiter for safety, what's a good suggestion? I'm trying to keep costs and
size under limit ( hah ).
Aphex Dominator has been recommended elsewhere, but I'd like to stick to half-space
devices if possible for size considerations...
Anyone know of an available half-wide rack case/bag? I'm considering modding a standard 5 space by
installing rails on the long axis, but that's too much work for a lazy boy and I'd still have half the thing vacant...
Thanks for bothering to read all this and thanks for any help or comments.
