A few other things that may help, some of these I wish I had been told years ago:2 - Play some music through your PA you know at home. Cut each EQ band all the way to the bottom one at a time. Listen to the effect it has on the music. Wait for each instrument in the mix to have a solo so you can hear the impact on different instruments. Ditto with different vocal ranges
But understand that an EQ on your main outputs or inserts is not a tone control for one instrument, because everything is going through it. If you need more tone control than is provided on the board EQ, first try improving it at the source. Then mic placement. If that fails (and it shouldn't) you can add an EQ on the channel insert that will affect only that input.
Lee, out of context it looks like I wasn't communicating what I intended. I suggested this as an exercise to learn the audio spectrum and the effect of removing that frequency.
Little off topic but IEMs have been mentioned several times...What are the best IEMs brands so I only do it once?
I do fight feedback issues at times. I've hesitated on getting a 31 band EQ,mainly because I don't really know anything about different frequencies, and I'd hate to cause one problem while trying to remove another. EQ frequencies such a simple concept that there is some magic setting to keep it at, and only adjust the same one or two bands as needed to get rid of feedback? Like I said, we don't have a sound guy, so I hope to use equipment with very little babysitting involved.
