Creating a good monitor mix is one of the most important skills for a live sound engineer to master. This advanced class will work with a live band in a low pressure environment. Subjects will include an introduction to Vera’s stage monitors, the basic ‘ringing out’ of monitors, EQing, gating, the techniques of creating clear monitor mixes and, if there’s time, an introduction to in-ear monitoring systems.
After completing the Mixing for Monitors class one can sign up to be the Sound Assistant at Vera Project shows. Mixing for Monitors is required to the Sound Assistant position and is a prerequisite for the Front of House class.
