I just built an entire PA system for Mephisto's in less than 2 hours. The christening sounds? Death metal out of a karaoke machine. The first band? FOLK SINGERS. The DI was FUCKED, so I had to mic and acoustic guitar and put the keyboards through a separate cabinet. The second band was solo, and more fucking folk. And she bitched about the sound. You know what? I didn't even have time to dial in the compression, and that mixer is EVIL. Allen & Heath, I want you to die in a fire. Seriously, fucking die please. Oh, and BBE, too. What a fucking waste of money that "sonic maximizer" is. By the time the third act went on, I was running one vocal mic only through it, and I at least managed to dial in the compression. The EQ is still more or less zeroed. Feedback is still an issue, but I think I can dial it out if I can get the noise floor higher without having to strain the mics. All in all it went OK considering the circumstances, but you'd better be goddamn sure I'm never going to let a band go on without a THOROUGH sound check and a list of their gear before they show up. Now, to go attempt to calm down and possibly sleep. Mmm, sleep.
