For Robbiex 9 Months, 1 Week ago  
Just got back from a gig.

I know you go to a lot of gigs Robbie,like me.

I wish to ask you if concerts sound more muffled/bassy or vocals sound lost in the mix or too much high reverb to you? There seems to be no balance.

Apart from me seeing Peter Gabriel and Molly Hatchett they were flawless and mixed perfectly. I used to like it when bands played very loud but clear, they also drowned out the gossipers.

In the past the best sound was near the sound booth or upper tiers, even if you sacrificed good views.

Now they can sound as bad like being too close to the speakers. A lot sound guys seem to talk to each other about holidays, pints or home time.

I was at a big standing venue tonight, I even walked around various parts of the theatre in vain. Not the first time it's happened at different venues and bands in recent times.

Intervals seem to last forever.

I don't go to many concerts anymore. I saw the radio 2 in the park gig on tv, and the sound was pretty good for an outdoor gig. The only concert I've been to this year is the Abba Voyage concert, if you can call this a real concert. The vocals were a little bit muffled and sometimes drowned out by the live musicians. I used to go to go to Portsmouth guildhallj and the vocals would often dominant, and I would often think, you could take the bass player out, and knowone would know any difference

One sound guy, couldn't get the vocals right at one gig. He was playing around with trying to find the perfect pitch for 40 mins. It stopped when an old man said something.
