I am hoping someone with experience with in ear monitor setups can give me their thoughts on setting up as follows. I read a few shows, back acts and play with a covers band. The covers band is normally working in confined stages, so the issue of guitar level Vs vocalist foldback often comes into play. A couple of the backing gigs are preferring iem, particuarly the pit gigs and those with a bit more profile. I am thinking of setting up as follows, as sometimes there is avion, sometimes not. Im thinking of running a balanced out from the Fractal Ultra to the stage box, for handling to foh, then a unbalanced to a rackmout line mixer, a monitor send with my monitor mix (no guitar) to a second channel in the rackmount line mixer, then the out of the line mixer to a Sennheiser 300 g3 monitor system. The idea of the line mixer is to submix before sending to the ears. Then if the gig has me doing BVs, I could bring my mic into the line mixer and send out to the stage box, yet control all my own balances. Wont split it up to the extent of avion, but will give me enough flexibility. Is anyone doing similar or has suggestions.
Appreciate your thoughts,
