Consistent sound throughout live performances
I guess you already know what i'm about to write on this thread from reading the title..
how can an electronic music band have a consistent sound between live performances? given that we have different EQ and FX settings for each song and we deal with different speakers, monitors, sound technicians, etc..?
one of our biggest concerns and doubts is to connect everything and feed the result to the FOH.. i'll try to explain:
Imagine we have 4 songs to play. the first song has reverb and echo on the vocals, a bassy synth, electronic percussion sounds, etc...
the second song has a clear, unmodified voice, acoustic percussion and a high picthed lead synth...
how would we achieve this...equipment and connections wise?
one of our first ideas was to have midi control over several fx equiment such as compressors, digital equalizers and multi-fx...
how would we feed the FOH mixer with a setup like this?
I can imagine the synth player have a midi controller send a midi program change message to all of the rack equipment.. but how would this affect the FOH and how would it all connect to the main mixer?
