Live Sound Help

Recommended Posts

I play with a trio and I'm largely responsible for the sound. We're all multi-instrumentalists so we end up using 11 channels for our setup (mandolin, 3 guitars, upright, kick drum, snare, 3 vocals and harmonica). Our desk has parametric mids for most instruments and we run a graphic. I tend to try to do a basic voice-up for every room then use the parametric mid to pull out any feedback. 

So we have enough gear, and I've done production modules at uni so I'm no completely naive, but I'm wondering if anyone has any resources or tips for getting an even, balanced sound. I'm wondering if I'm missing something.

I'm open to all ideas!

 

thanks

are you panning anything?

I've always assumed panning was for the studio rather than live. Should I be panning?

you'll have fun with that, we had one (we're a trio as well), far too complicated for our needs, sold it on and moved back to an analogue desk, but its an amazing bit of kit that XR18, so many options..
