| Ok, so our roller derby gig is this Saturday -- for winning the battle of the bands, we're playing two short sets before each of the two matches (it's a double header). It's at the Civic Center, where I saw Primus a few months ago. Typical 8k seat arena. They're estimating at least 3000 in attendance for the event. No pressure...
Anyway, the guy that does sound for the Roller Girls: a)has very little experience running sound for bands; b)has a Behringer studio board without a monitor section; and c)doesn't know how to run a monitor feed out of his board.
Speaking generally, can't an aux bus be used the same way the monitor section of a live board would be used? I'm also thinking his setup lacks any effects (reverb/delay), which I'm not too worried about since the venue will probably provide plenty of both. In some ways, I think it'd be easier for me to bring my own board and either convince him to use it, or run sends for each channel from his board to mine, so we can monitor through it. That's a lot of sends, as we're wanting to mic everything because of the sizeof the venue.
Anybody have any thoughts or advice on this? I'm trying to not freak out on this, telling myself things will work themselves out, but...
