Hey all - I did some searching/googling for this but didn't find a straightforward answer.

Looking to find out how to send a single mix to multiple IEMs.

I've got a digital board with six AUX outs for mixes.  Each of us are using IEMs (a couple wired, a couple wireless - Behringer P1 or Shure PSM300 systems and a Rolls PM50 for the drummer). But as a musician/singer running the PA from stage, I`m getting overwhelmed with managing everyones individual mixes and levels. The "Golidlocks Syndrome" -  multiplied by 5 musicians -  is driving me nuts and affecting my performance and sanity! 8). It also seems too much to expect each of the guys to manage thier own monitor mixes from a smartphone app, which my board is capable of. So, looking for the most dead simple alternative.

Before IEMs, we were OK with using a single mix thru the wedges daisy chained from a single AUX out and I would like to regress a bit back to that but use the IEMs as well - I just don`t see how that works at the moment!

Any suggestions as to how to accomplish this? My initial thought was a single wireless transmitter into multiple wireless IEM receivers. Is this doable? Suggestions on brands/models? Is there a non-wireless method that would accomplish the same?

Bringing this back to life a little as still considering options. Alto SXM112a is still an option but with unseen financial issues I might need to rely on special financing via Sweetwater.


I don't see the logic here.  The Alto is the lightest, smallest and at 299.00 the most affordable.  What financial issues require you to buy something larger, heavier and not a good sounding?

I get no interest for 2 year credit card offers in the mail every week...

I am really interested in the fact that your clients pay you/hire you back if the rig cuts out in the middle of a show.  The first time that happened the thing would be in the fucking dumpster.

My thoughts are close. 1 failure gets it pulled from the rack, and put on a bench.
Once the fault is recreated, fixed, and tested, it will go back in service.
Second failure, and it's history.
My clients pay me to provide sound. Not silence.

Looking for a shure psm1000, 1 dual transmitter with 4 packs in L8. I'm
aware this frequency band is discontinued. If anyone wants to move theirs...let me know

Not only is it discontinued, it will become illegal to use in 3 years, and you will not be able to get service.

I can highly recommend these:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/301908686912

Don't let the price fool you. They have memory wire and can be found with or without the cable mic for your phone.

They are sounding great for everyday use but still work great as iem as well. Due to its dual driver design it even works with 5-string bass and it can also get loud and punchy while not crapping out.

Looks to me like it HAD such a cover, but the cover was broken off because the wall wart didn't fit under it. Or because it was hanging open because the wall wart didn't fit, and got broken when someone or something was moved past it.
Yes, that's exactly how I read it.

Did they blow up the old one?

If not, get a compressor to put on the mic (only).

Might be difficult if they only have a DJ desk. Time to grab a small-format mixer or something.

Just wanted to say I've read through the entire thread, and I really appreciate everyone contributing their time and experience.

I'm a few steps behind Nathan - right now, it's just me, and I'm charging a fraction of the rates that have been discussed here. I, too, worked as a hobbyist for a few years (as well as working at some local venues and a couple of times with an external sound co), but I'm finding it difficult to charge a useful amount of money.

For instance, I've got an all-day event coming up (well, early afternoon until around midnight) that's come to 250 (it's a fairly big gig for me - kit list below). It costs around 10,000 per year to live here. I don't know how that stacks up with you guys - you're certainly charging a lot more than me, but how does the cost of living compare?


Kit list for the 250 event:
Main speakers (DIY, 2x10"+HF, 2.5KW each)
4x subwoofers (DIY, 1x15", 1.2KW each)
4x monitor mixes (2x 1x12", 4x 1x8", arranged as you'd expect. Around 1KW total)
12x desk inputs (mics, DIs, etc. Mostly EV N/D range, couple of condensers)
Digital desk (QSC TM16)
Cables, racks, etc as required.

From what I can tell by reading around here, they're getting a serious bargain, but charging more is met with a lot of resistance.
I've got a regular venue that's just got new management in, and they're haggling on a 500 quote for a 3-day festival.

I don't own any lighting or video equipment. I'd like to in the future, but right now I'm focusing on maintaining positive cash flow. Transport is also an issue - I have a small car at the moment. I want to buy a van, but they're expensive to buy and cost around 3000 per year in insurance alone. I also can't rent a van because I'm under 25, so I'm looking at getting a trailer.

This post went on longer than I thought it would, so I'll stop now. If anyone has any thoughts on the matter, it'd be much appreciated.

Cheers
Chris
