Wow. WHAT an evening. I brought my mom with me. Band mom, very intelligent, and even though she doesn't have any training, she is pretty smart with her comments. So I'm gonna talk about the theate

Oh I don't think they will. :)

Love your review! I really agree with a lot of what you said. I'm really excited for you to see Bloo live because it's sooo different. I went to many of the apring training camps and got to attend the

Nice review. In being THE trend setter in all things electronic with DCI...the 'Coats front ensemble members have in ear monitors!

2016 is gonna be another fun one for the folks from Canton.

And not just each with in-ear monitors. They each have their own independent mix. :wow::wow::wow: Their electronics setup is premier.

Yeah, it helps to have the Head of Sound for one of the Cirque du Soleil shows as their audio designer.

Individual mixes isn't all that hard to do technically though, esp. since you're already pulling the mic'ed instruments into the system to amp them. With a Behringer console, you just go Ultranet cat5 out of the board into a P16D splitter, then into a P16M personal mixer/amp per performer to give them 16 channels of audio to mix however they want. Pretty standard setup for traditional onstage musician monitors.

I'm sure it's much harder on the performers' side, since it changes how they've been always been trained to listen/coordinate.
