I happened to mention this to Retro Verse in another discussion, and he wanted to know a little more so I thought I'd write about it here.
We are doing a fund raiser for a local musician who has a dire illness. He and I used to work as a duo and in a band about 17 years ago. I think just about everyone who has ever played with him since then will be crossing the stage tomorrow. That will solos, duos, and bands of various sizes.
The reason for so many L1®s is to accommodate all the possible combinations of performers and gear. It is actually simpler to have more L1®s on stage (rather than fewer) ready to go. I don't move them around. As each new act hits the stage I ask the performers to stand where they want to be playing. Then I wire 'em up to the closest L1®. Then I show them how to work the T1® in front of them (takes less than a 20 seconds typically) and we're ready to rock.
Tomorrow should be relatively easy as most of these folks have played with me with the L1®s on this stage before.
The Drum kit is well over to one side, with a Classic and 4 B1s. Beside that is another Classic with 4 B1s for the Bassist. The two Model IIs will be in the middle with one or two B1s each and then the last two Classics will be on the other side with one or two B1s. I'll probably have T1®s for each L1®.
I typically run a Classic into a remote location through a wireless connection. I'll be using a Compact this time around in a large room that is well away from the main performance space. I'll probably run a line out from that Compact and toss a wire through a window so I can run the second Compact for a large outside patio.
I'm planning to have ball as I have played with several of the performers over the years and we're going to be doing a lot of jamming in ad-hoc collaborations. In the old days a party like this would have lasted well into the next day. I can't help but wonder if we've all mellowed a bit or whether we'll take the opportunity to really let our hair down. At least this time round we'll all be able to hear one another.
Here's the plan.
There will be lots of different instruments that are not shown here, but this should give you a rough idea.
