Our band plays fairly regularly at a venue that has horrible acoustics--tile floors, concrete walls, wood furniture, and not a stitch of sound-absorbing material anywhere. To make things worse, it's a very small space AND we usually perform crammed in a corner. Last gig was the worst ... Due to the acoustics and the fact that we had two subs and my bass amp (Ampeg BA115HPT) all going at once--I know, I know, big mistake--I was awash in sonic trash. Lot of reflections and wave cancelling going on at once. We've recently gone wireless with our mono mix with an Audio-Technica M2 in-ear rig with some out-of-the-box earbuds that are, well, less than subpar. So I'm not expecting to hear tons of well-defined bass through those, but I know I can make things better. Just bought a new SansAmp Bass Driver DI hoping I can use that to get "amp-like" tone while reducing stage volume. Any other recommendations? We have a decent PA that I know can handle the bass going direct, so I'm leaning toward using my Ampeg as a monitor. As I understand it, I can do that by going direct with the XLR out of the SansAmp and connecting the other output to the Ampeg. Will this allow me to EQ the amp for monitoring purposes while leaving FOH processing to the SansAmp/mixer? If anyone has some good advice on how to get better bass through the mono mix, please enlighten me ... I'll try anything at this point.
