The band brings all of their own microphones, cables and microphone stands. The band will mic themselves, send each line through their monitor board, and then send all lines to the FOH via a snake. The sound technician can insert the inputs into their system in whichever order he/she would like.
4 of the 6 members of Libido Funk Circus use in-ear monitors, which are controlled by their own monitor board. However 4 wedges (using 2 different mixes) are required for the 2 who do not use in-ears. The front 3 monitors will be used for vocals only (all using the same mix) and the fourth monitor will be used for instruments. Here is what is needed in each monitor…
What is needed
A decent amount of the stage-right guitarist’s vocals (#15), Female lead vocals (#16) and Male lead vocals (#17)…a medium amount of the drum vocals (#20)…and a very small amount of the bass player’s vocals (#18) and the stage-left guitarist’s vocals (#19).
Keyboards (#10-14), stage-left guitar (#8) and if necessary, some bass guitar (#7).
All of the keyboards are pre-recorded and played back by a hard-disk recorder, which is located and controlled by the drummer. All of the tracks have been mastered to the same level, and they do run through a compressor before they reach the FOH. However, in order to keep them sitting right in the mix, they may require a little “fader riding” on the part of the sound engineer.
If a temporary stage is going to be used, please make sure it is as stable as possible.
If a drum riser is going to be used, it must be at least 10’X10’ and extremely stable and level. If it is not, we kindly request that no riser be used at all.
The microphone located behind the stage-right guitarist (labeled TB) will be used as a talkback mic only. It will only go to our monitor board…not to the FOH.
