So I'm just wondering if any ENGL Savage owners can chime on this.
*I should note that the other guitarist has a Randall V2 Ninja, which also has a compensated line out*
I'm planning the summer tour with my band and really want to be able to use wireless IEMs. I'm trying to think of the most self-reliant setup so we don't have to worry if some venue's we will be playing have the proper gear, etc.
So here's what our original plan was.
DAW --> Interface --> stereo pair of click/backing into transmitter 1
---------------------> mono backing track to FOH for synths/whatnot
The idea was just to use the in ears as click tracks so we can keep time with the synths, and use stage wedges to actually monitor. Essentially an idiot proof plan with no reliance on any external gear.
Anyways I think it's fucking retarded that I'm not actually monitoring through the in ears, but that's just because I'm sort of a gear snob and really want to make it work. So I've been a major pain in my ass to my band mates and am trying to pressure them into this setup.
DAW --> Interface --> stereo pair click/backing into transmitter 1
---------------------> stereo pair click/backing into 4 channel mixer
---------------------> mono backing to FOH
--> L/R click backing into line input 1 and 2
--> L compensated line output slaved from Savage into input 3
--> R compensated line output slaved from Randall into input 4
Left: Savage + click/backing --> L input of transmitter 2
right: Ninja + click/backing --> R input of transmitter 2
Obviously transmitter 2 will be going just to me and the other guitarist. The bassist/drummer just want to use the click/backing track.
I know compensated outs will sound like fucking ass, but will this setup work? Any magic boxes or pedals that I could use to make the compensated outs sound less shitty?
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!
Palmer PGA-04. It can sit between your amp and cab and send a simulated cab sound to whatever you like. They are pretty pricey, though.
