Using in-ear monitors on stage? It’s very common these days, and yet I’m amazed at the number of people who don’t know how to use them or mix with them. This video covers the basics or mixing with volume and panning, and is ESSENTIAL if you want to play successfully with in-ears.

Also, be sure to download this Ableton File to accompany the lesson.

  1. Hey Jayme
    Very informative stuff. Our church has a separate digital monitor board that is manned which allows each instrument or vocal the opportunity to get their mixes done exactly the way they want. I personally use cans and they do the job, but I’ve always been intrigued with in-ears. However I’ve always been put off with the expense. Perhaps some day I’ll be able to pull the trigger on a pair.

    By the way, or individual monitors for each performer is wireless (obviously) except the bass and drums which are hard-wired into the system.

    As usual – you leave no stone un-turned with any subject you attack. Thanks again!

    1. Thank you Chris! Ya a good set of cans can do the trick too, but for the sake of hearing protection I’d still invest into some molded ears – at sub $300 set of molded in-ears will protect your hearing better than a $1k set of cans will! Especially if you’re near a drummer 🙂

  2. This is very helpful as I am just now in a situation where ‘in ears’ are a requirement… a first for me. Thanks much! (A set of Westones are on the way!)
