That is awesome advice, but the venue is inside an arena and the only time I will have a sound check will be the day before the actual event. I'm seriously considering just using the TBEQ and APD1...as you said, less to worry about and absolutely no noise, just pure clean signal that can later be edited.
The issue against that is every time I've used the Meek, I've always gotten praise about my tone...but I'm afraid of using it for something that will be recorded and possibly edited in a studio later
To be honest, today I've been considering a REDDI after reading so many threads about it. But I feel like it would be too much for what I do outside of this ONE event-- mainly play worship on Sunday's.
