In a live musical performance, accurate stage monitoring is a vital element to achieve the optimal performance. Current stage monitoring uses traditional musician-facing loudspeakers. Problems can be surmised as excessive Sound Pressure Level (SPL), the inability to hear themselves, acoustic feedback, and general stage untidiness/space requirements. In-ear monitors (IEM’s) can offer a solution to these problems when the IEM system has been properly designed . One crucial issue with IEMs is the sense of isolation and disconnection from stage noise and crowd. To overcome this issue, an auto-panning system that adjusts spatial placement of audio channels within the performers stage mix has been designed and built.
