In Ear Monitoring – Getting It Right - Soulsound

Monitor engineers often struggle with standard monitors to help the artist as much as they need. Over the last few years In Ear Monitors have become a sought-after way for musicians to play live – but it’s not easy to get it right! 

Having the sound right in the musician’s ears creates new problems, not the least being making it safe for their ears – and that’s more than just sticking a limiter over the mix!

The technology also creates problems – you need custom moulds for each musician, as well as for the engineer. The moulds themselves aren’t perfect either, as your ear changes shape whenever you move your jaw, so, for a singer, this means the moulds do not fit perfectly all the time.

Keeping track of all the belt packs and monitoring damage to cables etc is also the responsibility of the monitor engineer – so having a good system for this is essential.
