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,

On my system, I do not see the indications of messages and notifications as they are very, very dark against a dark background. Is there something I can do to change this?

There's a way you can change the view settings for the board. Check at the bottom of the page where it says change theme.

Hey Ronald,


I understand that you're new to Guitar Zone and you may not be familiar with how the forums are structured. If you have any questions about anything don't be afraid the start a new thread rather than just posting in an old one. I'm gonna lock this one because it's 5 years old! You can start a new one asking your question. It just keeps things tidier and makes everything easier to find.
