So I need help picking out a mic. I need a mic that has a wide cardiod pattern and will work well picking up the entire band. The intended purpose is for band monitoring in a wired IEM solution. Weird request. I know. Hear me out. I need something to send to my singers IEM pack so she can hear the band. In a perfect world, she'll justo take an aux send from the house board and work with the engineer on getting her mix right. However, were at the stage where we will be an opening act, not headlining. My fear is (1) the clubs will not want to spend much time fiddling with IEM mixes for an opening act singer (2) will not have the proper board for having extra aux sends for IEM singers. With that in mind, I want a solution that is plug and play and can cover us/her just incase the club can't accommodate her IEM needs. I have a solution devised for her vocal monitoring that uses a mic splitter and gain booster which allows her to send her own vocals back to her wired body pack (she's using a presonus hp2). This eliminates the dependancy on the FOH guy for her vocal monitoring. However, she still needs to hear the band. The presonus has two inputs the can be summed for one blendible mono mix. She'll have her voice in one side. I want to use some sort of field mic set up on stage and send that signal to the other side her body back for instrument monitoring. I know it's not ideal, but it will cover us/her when we run into the situation where the club's equipment is lacking or the FOH guy is a douche. Any thoughts on a mic than would work in this solution.
