Often times total immersion is the best way to learn something new. But it's certainly daunting when you don't have any kind of safety net under you. I've been in several situations where I've had to work well outside my comfort zone and luckily they didn't come back to bite me. I also learned during those times that it's never a bad thing to ask for help when needed.
Alright I'm in position that I may have to step up and run FOH. I supply sound for a local venue and for the most part had a FOH guy and I handled monitors and setup. I would from time to time runFOH but not often. Well after 2 years my FOH has to stop due to day job issues. So if I wish to continue I will need to handle FOH on my own something I feel a little nervous with but feel I could handle. I obviously am not at the level he is at but feel it will come with experience. I will try to bring someone on in the future. Has anyone started FOH due to similar situations?
Keep the vocals on top, just about everything else is secondary....imho
Running monitors is actually the BOSS job. It is the most technical and challenging, with the highest level of skill required to accomplish the job with success.
I agree. I often wonder why bands who tour with one engineer put him on FOH.If I were touring in a band with one engineer, I would have him on monitors and let the sound company's engineer run FOH,Steve.
