Hi. After a good while of using crappy PA systems our singer decided to buy her own one because we’ve always had issues with those systems and sound guys who didn’t seem bothered It’s an active system. RCF M18 digital mixer system with RCF 712a speakers and an Alto TS310 monitor. I’ve been into mixing and sound engineering and recording my own songs as a hobby type thing for a while so I understand about gain staging and the principles of EQing etc. But setting up levels for live use is very new to me. What’s the best way to go about setting up the speakers, the gain, the master output? When recording I would set the input signal low, at maybe -12 to 20db for a good amount of headroom and turn my monitors up. Then use the master output when mixing for a master. What are the basic principles here for getting the most volume without feedback etc. When do I turn ‘what’ up? Should I start with the speakers low, or should I max them and use the master output etc? Thanks for any help.
