When doing monitors from FOH, it’s necessary to set the gain so that it works both for FOH and for Monitors. Justin talks us through the method of starting with setting it for FOH, and then use the digital trim if necessary to adjust monitors, and the difference between sharing channels between monitors and FOH and having separate channels in different layers.

Other topics covered: Frequency recognition, using high pass filters, feedback control, sonic control, using Graphic EQ, fundamentals v harmonics, how EQ affects gain structure, proximity effect, single wedges v pairs, the effect of reflective surfaces like glasses and what happens when you cup the microphone hip hop style.
