I do sound sometimes for a pop-rock dance band. Usually not over loud, but ..... I am finding that sometimes it GETS loud, and I can't control vocals, especially those in the vocal mics, which feed to the monitors, which leads to singer saying he can't hear, which leads to turning him up in monitor, which makes drums louder in his monitor, which makes it hard for him to hear.....which leads to blown tweeter(S). The problem mostly occurs mostly where some of the rooms don't' allow for more distance between singer/mic/monitor and drummer. I am working with the drummer to dampen cymbals, drums, but was trying to figure out what else to do to fix this issue, primarily in short front (not very deep) settings. I also spoke with singer about NOT setting up directly in front of drummer, but he really wants to stay "central". I finally explained that it directly impacts what not only I, but the Mic/monitor am capable of giving - and at some point - that is all there is. Now - I say this, keeping in mind that they are all willing to work with me on this, and no one is being unreasonable. Singer will move off center if needed, drummer will dampen kit. NO SLAMMING PLEASE That all said, what else can I do from my perspective - within reason. This is usually good for 3-5 gigs a month and they have been good to me.
