It is not easy to pick the correct accessories for live stage performances, as it requires a perfect assembling of various equipment. The PA system makes it possible for the public to hear the music. It provides connection and distributes the music after amplifying it to the desired level. The sound of all instruments and all the vocal signals pass through this PA system. It is impossible to arrange a concert without this electronic. On the other hand, the mixer is a vital part of any live performance, as it processes and mixes sounds from different sources. You may even require an equalizer to refine the tunes of a PA system. The wireless speaker is another essential item in today’s live performances, as it frees a performer from restrictions of wires and let their performance to the highest capacity. The success of any concert depends upon the perfect selection and assembling of the sound & stage accessories.
The PA system forms the crux of the stage accessories. These musical instruments are available in different capacities and their capacity largely depends upon the size of the audience. You may determine the wattage capacity of a PA system for any concert at 1:1 ratio which is a person-to-watt ratio. It is equally essential to consider numbers of output and input channels necessary to connect the speakers, microphones, recording devices and other sound systems. The portable and wireless PA systems are suitable for the live concerts. The wireless PA devices have integral mic receivers with a CD player and tape player. You can easily carry these lightweight devices without requiring additional help. Along with a PA system, a microphone windscreen also improves the quality of the sound during stage performances. It prevents the speaker’s/singer’s voice from scattering and creates a compact sound.
In the list of accessories, the mixer comes right after the PA system, as you need it to process different tunes. The digital mixers are ideal for stage performances due to their smaller and lighter weight. A mixer has different channels and each channel has controls for tone and volume. You may use these controlling keys to create delightful live sound for the audience. The latest digital mixers have ‘Echo’ and ‘Reverb’ acoustic features and you can add more dynamism to the tunes using these features. The powered mixers with built-in amplifiers are ideal for passive speakers, as these speakers need help of external amplifying devices.
During rock concerts or other stage performance, you may even find the monitors to be highly useful. These exclusive speakers encourage the audiences to perform along with a band or singer, as they amplify their sounds. When you use a monitor speaker, you can relieve a performer from using the powered speaker to sing and capture the audiences’ voice at the same time. Alongside these live sound accessories, you may also require subwoofers during a stage performance, especially when you perform with drums, bass-guitars or synthesizers. The subwoofers amplify the sounds of these musical instruments during a concert.
