So I am planning on making the step from bedroom setup to a more professional level live rig in the near future, and, as these things go, there's some planning involved. Allow me to bore you with some background: In Namibia, Live engineers are, in short, a difficult subject. Monitoring is almost always a nightmare (using wedges), Tech riders often get ignored, lineups with multiple artists on the same day change stage setup between bands, compromising things quite dramatically. I recently lost my cool a little bit about these things, and decided to invest in some equipment that makes me less dependant on the factors I can control, thus ensuring a more consistent performance. The plan is to become as independent from stage techs and hands as I can, without making their lives more difficult. I know I want a Kemper, preferably a Powerrack, since it has more options and can be rack mounted with the rest of the gear. If needed, the Powerrack can be hooked up to a 4x12 without any extra requirements. The next piece of the puzzle seems like it'll be the Sennheiser EW300 setup. I know the ear pieces are a bit rubbish, but the actual system seems solid. This should allow me more reliable monitoring (more below) and allow me to move out of the sweet spot I am normally forced to stand in if I want to hear a thing. To go with the wireless IEMs, I'll probably go Line6 G30 or something like that. De-Cable completely. This is where things get a bit more complex, and where I need your input: The plan is to run Stereo into the IEMs. Right side is the "monitor-mirror" from the kemper. Left side is normal monitor mix. Ideally, since Stage techs that can set up proper IEM setups are difficult here, I'd want a signal split that takes the lead from the wedge, and Y-splits into the left channel of my IEMs and back into the wedge. This way, the rest of the band (who won't go IEM with me) can still use the monitor (though that mix is normally mine), and there is a fallback should something go wrong. This way, IDEALLY, i can deal with the sound engineer the same way i always do and always have my own sound in the right ear. I can play like that fine, often using a similar setup when tracking ideas in my home studio. The question is: how best to achieve that Y-split, without causing any sound engineer to have a heart attack. Ideally, a piece of rackmount kit would be a good thing here. Another thing I am clueless about is power conditioners. I would want the whole setup to be running off one power lead, while minimizing the risk of power related issues. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
