I know the topic has been discussed before, so this isn't so much a "what should I do?" as it is just a "what do you do?" for curiosity's sake... so... What do you do? Do you painstakingly ensure that "your" tone is what gets sent to the board? Do you try to get it that way if the sound guys are cooperative but not make too big a deal if all they want is DI? Or do you not really mind what they ask (so long as they're competent enough to make the band sound good) and just make sure that you're rockin' to your own tone on stage?
