New Gig Tool: POSSE Personal Monitor Mix System

February 28, 2012
imgDesigned by musicians for musicians, POSSE Audio launches a revolutionary, affordable and compact system for musicians, recording artists, and music venues, eliminating the need for a monitor mix sound technician and allowing for easy customization of ear monitors on stage or in the studio. The POSSE system (Personal On Stage Sound Environment) seamlessly interfaces with wireless earphone and instrument systems and comes with an acoustic gooseneck mic for the unelectrified. You can also use a built-in phantom power supply, record all your performances, play music during the break, and tune with a line-of-sight tuner—all in this travel-size system. POSSE is great for private practicing at home, too, allowing you to monitor yourself and play—without disturbing others in the house or neighborhood—using recorded music or any outside musical source.
“POSSE was originally designed to correct for monitoring problems that a performer encounters on the stage and in the studio,” offered POSSE co-creator and singer-songwriter, Randy Sharp, who co-designed the concept of the system. “We’ve all struggled with trying to communicate with the sound person, dealing with a poor monitor mix, or in instances where the audience or band mates are too loud. Being able to independently set the level of your vocal mic, your instrument output, the ambiance of the room and any auxiliary input(s), you can customize your monitors to a comfortable and performance enhancing mix… And you’ll play better when you sound good to yourself. When performers cannot hear themselves, they tend to play and sing harder, which causes havoc with the vocal chords, nuances of the music, and pitch. By carrying your mix with you from venue to venue, you’ll eliminate the frustration and have the satisfaction of knowing how you’ll sound at every show.”

“Any performer—from a violinist in an orchestra to a drummer in a rock band—will be stunned by the improved monitoring ability of POSSE,” added Scott Morrison, who engineered the product. “POSSE is transparent to the house system so the house technician can mix for the audience and the performer can mix for themselves. If you need your mix adjusted, simply reach out and tweak a knob. In addition to being able to control your vocal/instrument mix, POSSE also provides precise control over the ambient stereo sound field. In effect, you can ‘listen past’ your earphones, making for a realistic performing experience.”
