Re: Gig report. Adding an S1 for a monitor?
We've decided to quiet it down for the next little while and had a dual acoustic and vocals rehearsal last night. I plugged my A6 into a Pro Jr, but the other fellow plugged his Rainsong and vocals into the S1. I understand now. It did a great job! Nice clear guitar/vocal separation and the built in reverb was fantastic to add a touch of air to everything. We spent a bit of time discussing logistics and decided for smaller/coffeeshop gigs we could get away with just the S1 and my Pro Jr. instead of hauling the L1. There was only one time when his guitar overloaded the S1 but he was goofing around playing way too hard. I also realised after the jam that I forgot to set the tone match to guitar so I imagine things to be even more balanced next time we jam.
I think I finally understand this little thing. I bought it for something it wasn't really designed for. Right too for the right job. I think a set of these would be killer for our acoustic stuff. Might have to look into picking up a second one down the road if this concept pans out.
When plugging a guitar in via 1/4 into the S1, should I be using a regular guitar cable? Or is a balanced TRS cable still recommended?
