My Singing Lessons Guide To In Ear Monitors
When singers and musicians perform on a stage, it’s important that they can hear what they are playing. Generally musicians and performers use monitor speakers – often referred to as wedges – to hear themselves on stage. The trouble is, everyone wants to hear their performance clearly above everyone else. And why not? You need to be able to hear if your performance is in time and in tune with your fellow performers. For this reason, the most frequent request to monitor engineers is ‘can you turn me up?’. Inevitably, as each request for more volume is met, the overall stage volume begins to build; sound engineers often refer to this phenomenon as the ‘more me syndrome’.
