Hello! I recently joined my church band, and we do all direct to FOH with small monitors for the band. We don't have individual amps, we're all blended into these monitors. This is my only experience with all FOH, I've never played without my amp before. So it seems that I've been giving our sound guy problems. Playing with my rock band, I have better control over dynamics because I can hear the whole band, everybody has their own stage amps and it's generally a smaller venue. With the church's tiny monitors, and with all of our sound blended, I can't really tell what the heck I'm doing with my dynamics. It seems during softer songs, I play softer, and the sound guy turns me up because I'm too quiet. Then it'll be a more upbeat song and I'll be booming through the church and he turns me down again. The previous bassist had no compressor, but his playing was also not very dynamic. Do I need a compressor? Or am I just bad at dynamic control? I also don't want to cover up technique deficiency with a pedal. I'm hoping the folks here with more FOH experience can help me out.
