  • Live Sound/Small Gig

    I'm playing a party tomorrow and we've got a nice PA set-up, but my amp situation is lacking. In the past I've just sent a mono mix to the PA from the Master Out and sent the Phone mix to one mediocre Amp behind me. Sounded awesome in the crowd but me and the band couldn't hear much.

    So, I've borrowed 2 decent keyboard amps and want to set them up to improve the situation. My question is: if I assign a Direct Out (say kick and snare) to one amp and a Direct Out (the rest) to the other, will the Master mix be affected? Will I lose the effects on the Direct Outs?

    Or I could just split out the phone mix to two amps...what would you do? Just looking for a simple solution this time. Thanks....

    If you want a real simple solution which keeps your effects and whatever just the way they are, set your panning on all pads to center and feed the right master out to one amp and the left master out to the other.

      Thanks Boingo that would do it - would you recommend I send the Phone Out to the board for the PA or send a line out from one of the Amps?

        There was a post not too long ago discussing use of the phone out. Someone gave a technical reason why it isn't desirable to use as a line out.

        Personally, I'd use the line out from the amp if it has one.

          The reason for not using the phones out is becuase it's a headphone amp. There's no reason to send a powered signal to an amp.

              Split your phone output. I did it 6 nights a week for two years. Absolutely no problem to do. Without a doubt, the simplest solution for stereo monitors.
