Creating a good monitor mix is one of the most important skills for a live sound engineer to master. This advanced class will introduce you to digital mixing boards in a low pressure environment. Subjects will include an introduction to Vera’s stage monitors, the basic ‘ringing out’ of monitors, EQing, and setting levels. The use of these techniques will allow you to create a clear monitor mix that will help performers be at their best. After a person has completed the Mixing for Monitors class they are eligible to take on Monitor Engineer volunteer positions at Vera shows.
This class is a prerequisite for the Front of House Mixing class at Vera and Monitor Engineer shifts at Vera. Each Live Sound class unlocks new audio engineering volunteer shifts at Vera and eventually paid opportunities in and outside of the venue. Become a volunteer at Vera to access other audio-related educational programs such as tours, field trips, and internships.
