    Make sure the Mix-In is only assigned to the Headphones and not the main outs. Otherwise you will give evryone a migraine with all the feedback.

    Also see if can get a drumless send from the monitor mix so you can control the drum to instrument level for you.

      saving your hearing

      Another probelm is i don't think the module has a limiter built in, so in case of a power surge or a careless sound engineer you can loose your heering... easily.
      Also you will get a mono signal in one ear only - but that can be fixed with a little adaptor so at least you hear the signal in both ears in mono.
      good luck.

        Michael Render,
        "...Make sure the Mix-In is only assigned to the Headphones and not the main outs..."
        ~ I can do that

        "...get a drumless send from the monitor mix so you can control the drum to instrument level for you..."
        ~ I'll give that a try


        viva1924,
        We don't have a Sound Engineer so no problem there...as far as a power surge...well...here's to livin' dangerously


        Excellent points guys...many thanks,

          hey, i had that mono signal problem too, but i just thought it was it was a problem/limitation of the mixer we were using. what kind of adapter fixes this?


          otherwise, i have used an input from the mixer to the module mix-in, routed only through the headphones and it worked great, despite the mono. i liked having the monitors directly in my ears...i'd recommend it to anyone.

            One of these should do the trick: 1/4" Stereo Plug to 1/4" Mono Jack Adapter; $2.99 at Radio Shack

            (But not one of these; 1/4" Stereo Jack to 1/4" Mono Plug Headphone Adapter; $2.99 at Radio Shack)
