Well, I'm still no Ray Dolby, but I can add concert sound to the list of things I can do acceptably.

Considering its the "Lab", we can start calling you Jesus Christ just adding concert sound acceptably. Did they bring their own equiptment (monitors, mixers, etc)?

Re: Feelin snarky today

It was still kind of harsh and treble-heavy, but the only thing I could do was severely trim the gain on the tweeter amp, thus resulting in muddy female vocals and cymbals.

The opening band had their own vocal mic, but ended up having me mic the bass cabinet and run an XLR pre-out from the guitar amp. The headliner had their own preamp stack for vocals, synth, drum track, and the lead singer's guitar, but had me mic both the lead guitar and bass cabinets. The only problem I heard with their sound was the lead singer's mic was too low, but I think it might have just been an odd mic. Couldn't do much for it, I just set optimal levels for their pre-amped feed and left it up to the synth player.

HOLY CRAP did they ever want it loud, I had a nasty headache by the end of the night. I'm really surprised I got that much out of the system down there, we were running it at Pat levels all night.
