The rig is very simple. Either my Jazz bass or Stingray5 cabled to a stage Trace Elliot 2X10 combo run direct to the board. Thats it. I am happy with the authentic, un-altered tone from the rig and the sound tech loves it too (from the mains-out front), but on stage (at stage volumes) that tone can sometimes be lost what with every one else wanting more of themselves in the monitors. I am sure that I'm the only one who has ever experienced this!? Understand that this is a Christian worship group and that I am thankful just to be a valued part of the team. I admire everyones talent and committment. Much of the material requires some modal melodic runs in the higher registers that can get lost in the stage mix at stage volumes. The monitors can't seem to handle the "boomieness" of the bass' lower notes (especially from the Stingray), so the bass is backed off there and much of the "busy stuff high on the neck" can be lost in the stage mix. I want to add compression to the rig as a solution. What would your thoughts be? How can I best implement compression to improve my overall sound given the circumstance? Or am I wrong headed here? Thanks!, and fire away. If this is the wrong place for this, moderators please move appropriately.
