    Don't have any photos, but I've just finished up a new live record/in ears/monitors rack quite recently! It's based around the Presonus StudioLive console, with a full split built in to the case! While technically not in-ears, I've used it to run ears, wedges, FOH in it's short life so far!

    LOL, that is true... It's not a bad console!

    But basically... The rack is a roadcase which houses the console, splitter, and a few units of outboard (Headphone amp, a couple of different pre-amps/comps/reverbs/EQs, it varys depending on the show.)

    It's all patched and on casters so it's bacially, roll into a venue, patch into the house snake and away you go! It could also house wireless transmitters should a band want to go that route.

    For live stuff, most of the processing is done in the board it's self, depending on the application that could be MONs or FOH. But generally, when I'm doing a record and mix down, I record using the board, then mix down at home in my mix room here! Purely because that's the workflow I'm used to, and there's all my plug and outboard here which I like using!

    I'll try get photos up ASAP to better explain though!

    Indeed! Well I've been working as a tech for a fair while now, both as a house tech and a touring engineer, so I know how to interface easily with the varying gear which different venues have!

    The MAIN thing, when designing a monitor rig for yourself or a band which is touring through different venues, where you AREN'T bringing FULL production yourself, is the ability to interface SEAMLESSLY with whatever the house has. Your gear CAN NOT interfere with whatever the house has. You need to know your rig inside out, upside down, backwards, 100% and be able to get it running flawlessly. The house techs presumably have some kind of monitor system ready for you to use, and by bringing in your own it changes things for them which often they don't like! However, if your gear slips right in with theirs and there aren't any issues, then no one is complaining and you get your same monitors where ever you go!

    Another point is ADVANCE ADVANCE ADVANCE!!! Get in contact with a venue or production company as early as possible and let them know EXACTLY what your bringing! Ask them what they will have so you can plan ahead! A short phone call a couple of weeks out can make a HUGE difference come show day! Suprises are generally not a good thing!


    Often when I tour with a group on monitors we always travel with certain things...

    FULL mic kit so our inputs remain the same in EVERY venue regardless of size. This ensures we have the same inputs going to the same places which means the monitor mixes are the same where ever we go!

    FULL stage wiring, all our own labled subsnakes and other stage wiring to get from all the different points on stage to the monitor rig. Then it's a simple matter of patch looms into the house snake.

    We will often tour with full mic stands or clips too for consistancy on that front too! It basically comes down to your budget, and how tight a production you want to run! There are obviously cases where you travel with EVERYTHING!! These shows are sweet! Same gear each night, often you use multipin connectors so instead of making upwards of 24 seperate connections it's just one big connector! You can really get a stage packed down in no time with a crew who knows what they are doing!

    Anyway, enough of my rambling! If anyone has any questions about touring shows, or anything live sound/production related, I'd be glad to help out!!
