I sing with a group of 8. Monitors have always been an issue for us. We're about to switch to in-ear in the next few weeks. In talking about in-ear monitors, the issue has been brought up of giving different singers/parts separate monitor mixes. Since vocals are completely dynamic, I'm not sure how we can ever blend if we're not hearing what the house is hearing. I'm not talking about overall volume or eq or reverb or anything like that. I'm just talking about the volume of one part in relation to another. For instance, if a soprano has her own mix where she's louder than everybody else, doesn't that make it impossible for her to be sure she's blending with everybody else in the house mix? It just seems to me that the only way to go (a cappella, that is) is to use the same mix relation that's being used in the house. Can anyone who's been at this for years and years give me some ideas? Pro groups?
