I have a group of 5 singers on stage each with their own microphone. They are singing to pre-recorded tracks. There are two mono monitor feeds to the stage going to wedge speakers (2 per feed). There are a few problems with the setup which are mainly related to the monitors.
Problems arise when one person wants the monitors up so loud with no vocals in the mix while I'm trying to make a good balance of both the music and the vocals. Even so, it is hard to make a good balance with both the track and the vocals coming out of the same monitors
I am thinking of trying an indirect monitor placement by using 2 wedges behind the singers pointing away from the singers toward the back wall which is only 5 feet away and 2 wedges in front of the singers pointing directly at them. The two wedges behind would only have the track mix while the two wedges in front would contain mainly vocals with possibly a tiny bit of track mixed in.
Any thoughts or different placements to try are appreciated.
