now not judging the quality of music but just the quality of soundcheck and I would have to say Aerosmith was the best soundcheck band I saw. The vocals were as clear as day. it was in a bigger venue. How often does this happen when vocals are not loud enough?
I would think vocals being a bit too loud is better than not loud enough. when you go to concerts do you notice a difference in sound checks?
have you noticed drums being too loud or one instrument too loud? I say nothing is worse than vocals not being able to be heard. Maybe the singer is not as confident in their singing.
I guess you would want lower vocals for some types of music.
