Sound Engineer Blog - El Sombrero 05-09-2009

Tent gigs are always a challenge. The reason is because the tent itself accentuates high frequencies more than a normal. The snare drum is normally unbearable. The saving grace I have are people coming to the gig with big sweaters to suck up the high frequencies that are present naturally in the small confines of a tent.

Overall, I was pretty happy with the sound at this gig. I just wish that I was able to run it a little softer so that I don't leave with my ears ringing. What most people don't understand is that in order for me to have any real control of the mix, my volume has to exceed stage volume.
