    I just purchased a set of Shure PMS 300 IEMs. I've only used them once at practice and it is fine as far as getting a good mix of the instruments. My only problem is my vocal. My vocal sounded really flat and over powering when I sang... not nice at all actually. I didn't know how loud to sing. I sing a lot of high harmonies. Any suggestions?...
  2. Could be audio occlusion.

    "The occlusion effect is not a new phenomenon and has been described here before. Still, it is a serious and continuing problem for some hearing aid users and thus is the kind of topic that merits some repetition now and then. It relates to the complaint that some hearing aid users make, newer ones in particular, of their own voice sounding a bit "funny" when they talk. Sometimes people feel like they're talking in a barrel, that what they're hearing is echoes of their own voice, or that their voice sounds "hollow" or "booming". Whatever adjectives people use to describe their perceptions of their own voice while talking, it is almost invariably negative. They just don't like the way their own voice sounds."

    RERC on Hearing Enhancement - Dr. Ross Says...

    It could also be how the signal from the mixer to you is set. You should run it pre-fader so you get the benefit of the processing of the mike channel.

    sounds like you just had your voice too high in your mix.

    turn your vocal down until you still hear it comfortably and clearly, but aren't like "scared" of your mic.
