Michael Souder

Currently mixing in-ear monitors for AFI and The Donnas.

“With loud rock bands, capturing the true guitar tone is a difficult part of producing good in-ear mixes. I tend to use a direct line, but if DI is not an option, go for a bright-sounding mic. Really loud amps make the problem worse. Guitar bleed in the vocal mics can wash out the guitar mics, making the guitar sound distant in the mix. Using a vocal mic with better rejection or reversing the phase of the guitar line or vocal mic can sometimes tame the problem. Also, EQ settings for in-ear mixes are different and much more dramatic than what's needed in the wedges. Don't be afraid to roll the highpass up above 250 Hz and try boosting 4 kHz for a little added presence.”
