    ...this...to get out the bad air out of me...

    played last sunday with my band in one of nearly good locality...
    but during the soundcheck my yaw felt down...
    the soundman connected my xlr output from my ai clarus to his soundboard...to get some bass from the pa! aaah i had nearly 300watts of brutality standing behind me!!! and that for a smaller location...
    and he went with my bass through the pa!!
    after a while soundchecking i had to hear this,
    "please do someting...your output-level is to high!!!"
    i asked him what output... hmm he meant that from my line out...
    hmm ok i turned my gain knob down to 9 o´clock...
    "please more!!!" aaah
    i went down to 8...a little more and nothing came out!
    after his whole mistreatment i heard more bass from the pa that was 3m in front of me than standing next to my rig...
    it wasn´t good..
    but the gig was nearly fine the people said that the sound was ok...and it wasn´t such a mess as i am telling... but what the heck ...i heard nothing what i was playin...
    and to the top of it my "beloved" drummer quit yesterday!.... bad karma :bawl:
