An In-Ear Monitor System is a MUST in a musician’s gear
And I know, many musicians find it difficult to play wearing one of these, however, as a multiinstrumentalist who plays BY MYSELF, I just can’t play without them
- I don’t have a drummer carrying the tempo
- I don’t have a drummer counting in to start a song
- I don’t have another musician next to me to look at and nod and manage to start, stop, extend sections of a song
Then how does Pach manage those needs?
I use a piece of software called QLab (watch this video to see how it works) which allows me to play and handle many things like:
- Count in
- Backing tracks playback
- Click (tempo) track payback
- Video playback
- Automated guitar effect switching
- Lights automation
Yes, I know, that sounds crazy. But I don’t need a crew to handle a show for me, I can do all of that from 1 single computer, arriving a few hours earlier to a venue and setting up all of the above.
I still haven’t set it up, but I will also be able to make Qlab automate my analog guitar pedals and tube amp gear 😉
So having mentioned all of that, now you understand WHY I need an in-ear monitor system (IEM system)
If you wanna buy them, here’s the link to the cheapest ones on Amazon:
