wala na, di nako nag sa-sound check pag nakasalang na.. kasi imho ang soundcheck ginagawa lang sa rehersal, tandaan mu nalang yung mga tweak mo sa amps...
everybody's talkin 'bout new sound,, funny but its still rock en roll to me..

I don't do anything, I just plug my guitar, set the EQ to flat, do one quick check on the volume as discrete as possible and wait for the drummers' cue to start.

then its bam bam bam bam all the way hehehehe

pag nagaayos kami ng volume ng band namin, nagaagree kami ng key.:D

kaya kahit nagaayos kami, tunog open jam pa rin.:D kahit paano at least.XD usually, whatever the key of our first song is, that's the key we use when fixing the amp settings.:D

kadalasan reggae and togs namin...so when I'm done setting up...I play around with my wah and then skank away...normally papasok na yung drummer...dahan dahan pati yung keyboards and bass...tapos pag nagsawa na kami mag jam...pasok na yung vocalist and we start the gig...sa open jam din simula uminom para pag gig na talaga...maluwag na...and by the way, I think it's important to have a sound check with the whole band, para matimpla niyo yung levels niyo...kasi pag lahat kayo maingay, ang sama ng tunog...at pag midway marami ka pang tinimpla, parang nakakwalang gana yung togs...

I have yet to find a reliable guitar tech on small gigs. ^^;

@Topic

We play basic chords and simple licks just to check if they manage to cut through. We don't do anything fancy since we're doing a sound check to, well, check the sound. :-D

i just play one clean tone chord to check my volume with the other guitarists in the band.  :-)

no need to tweak the amp anymore if you've already used that kind of amp and remember the settings you did

Usually we check our pedals first and make timpla with the amp vs pedals. Then we try to balance our stage volume for each instrument, which also depends on the size of the stage. Then we just play a random chord progression like E-C#m-A-B or sumthing like that for the soundman to do his thingy. :)

pagkatapos ng individual na timpla ng mga kanya-kanyang instrumento with the PA, monitors etc.

play a song, wether or not matapos ang kanta....

make sure you hear everybody fine, you can hear yourself fine and you're neither too loud or to soft.

check/tweak eq then you're set. just collaborate with the guy on the mizing board to make sure everybody is happy.

We tune ourselves, and then play a song to get volume and other settings right.  Walang drama-drama and flashy stuff.

Edi magdala nalang kayo ng CD sa gig kaysa tumugtog kayo, masmadali pa dalin at ayusin.

Sa akin lang, hindi kailangan parehas ang volume ng lahat. Ang corny naman nun dahil walang impact yung ibang parts.
