Inputs and configurations

TRIO Format

Drums: We generally use six mics on the kit: 2 overheads, 1 snare, 1 kik, and 2 toms, but we can do with 4 (no toms in that case). In a pinch we can use 1 kik 1 snare. Typically we like Shure SM-57s on toms and snare, an AKG-D112 on kik, and any two condensers on over-head but we'll take what we can get.

Vocals: We have three vocals. We have our own mics, preamp and processor (TC Electronic) so that we need only send the PA one line level stereo pair. If we are using the house's mics we prefer SM-58s, some mild compression and a little reverb occasionally.

Guitars and Bass: We prefer to mic the guitar with a SM-57 and would rather have a mic stand than suspending the mic via the cord over the amp. We like to mic the bass amp when possible and prefer doing that over using a di box, but we're flexible.

Keyboards: We have three keyboard rigs. We generally have our own small keyboard PA but if we are using yours we'll need three stereo di boxes and three line level stereo ins. In a pinch we can use three mono line level ins.

Monitors: We require 3 monitors. Ideally we have two separate mixes (one vocal heavy, one keyboard heavy), but in a pinch we can all share the same mix.

Total input requirements: In all we require 11 mics (6 drums, 1 bass, 1 gtr, 3 vocal) and another 6 line level inputs (Keyboards 1-3 stereo). We can make do with 7 mics (2 drums, 1 bass, 1 gtr, 3 vocals) and 3 line level inputs.

Vocals: We have three vocals. We have our own mics, preamp and processor (TC Electronic) so that we need only send the PA one line level signal. If we are using the house's mics we prefer SM-58s, some mild compression and a little reverb occasionally.

Guitars and Bass: We prefer to mic the guitar with a SM-57 and would rather have a mic stand than suspending the mic via the cord over the amp. We like to mic the bass amp when possible and prefer doing that over using a di box, but we're flexible.

Keyboards: We have three keyboard rigs. The main keyboards are di'd directly into the mains. We'll need four mono inputs for that. The second keyboard rig uses a Traynor amp (we'll provide) that has a stereo d.i. output.

Monitors: We require 8 monitors: ideally one for each member, but can make do with two at vocal, one keyboard and one at drums. Ideally we have two separate mixes (one vocal heavy, one keyboard heavy), but in a pinch we can all share the same mix.

Total input requirements: In all we require 11 mics (6 drums, 1 bass, 1 gtr, 3 vocal) and another 6 line level inputs (Guy's keyboards 1-4 mono, 2nd rig stereo d.i.). We can make do with 4 mics (2 drums, 1 bass, 1 gtr) and 4 line level inputs (2 keys mono + amp d.i.).
