We all know that floor wedge monitors are not the way to go for a live show. They never sound great, and the people in the first 3 rows of your audience will hear their overdriven sound. So we can all agree that using in-ear monitors (IEMs) is the right choice, but the premium sound comes with a drawback. With the front-of-house mix coming in directly to your ears, you lose the ability to hear whats going on around you. This is why the P.O.S.S.E. (Personal On-Stage Sound Environment) comes with built-in ambient microphones. Turn up the “Room” knob and that closed-in feeling you get from wearing earphones goes away!
Besides the “Room” knob, the POSSE also has mixing knobs for your “Vocal Mic”, “Instrument” and “Aux” which is used to channel in the front-of-house mix. No other monitoring system has all of these features! The POSSE is also fully compatible with wireless microphone and monitoring systems to gain ultimate freedom on-stage for your performance.
The POSSE let’s you hear yourself with crystal clarity, so you won’t be singing or playing harder than you should, just so you could hear yourself, thus saving your strength for the next gig. You’ll hear better, sing better and play better because the POSSE let’s you choose exactly what you want to hear in your monitors. Every show you do will sound exactly the same in your monitors, freeing you from the grip of the grumpy sound guy who doesn’t really care about getting the right monitor mix for each musician. With the POSSE, you can quickly dial-in the same mix to every show. No longer do you have to worry about dealing with crappy monitors at your next venue.
POSSE can be set up in a number of ways to accomodate all types of musicians. Singers, Guitarists, Bassists, Keys and Drummers all love what the POSSE can do for them. Churches will often have a set of POSSE’s permanantly installed and daisy-chained to each other. It is completely compatible with wireless microphones and monitoring systems. POSSE is perfect for rehearsing or recording demo’s at home. It’s a simple set-up and the ambient mics give you the ability to hear what happening around you, like someone knocking at your door.
