Hey, just wondering if anyone knows if a unit exists out there that can help me out with this?

In my cover's band we have 2 lead vocalists and we swap songs regularily while the other does backup. What would be nice it to be able to have the lead channel set at a certain volume and EQ and have the backup channel set at a slightly lower volume and EQ'd differently. The problem of course then is that when we swap who's lead singing we'll be standing infront of the wrong mics! Now if we had a sound man it'd be easy cause he could make changes on the fly but its a bit harder when your in a small venue with your own mixing board that's difficult to adjust quickly between songs.

I was wondering if there's a unit which has 2 mic inputs and two outputs. Then when you activate it, it swaps which inputs go to which outputs. Hope that makes sense.

I.e. intially input 1 goes to output 1 and input 2 goes to output 2. Once activated input 1 goes to output 2 and input 2 goes to output 1.

I can probably make something easy enough but hopfully something exists already.

its easily made

but as a Sound engineer, you dont need to EQ the vocals differently. the only thing i do to differentiate between lead and backing is the amount of reverb i place on them.

if you are just doing small gigs dont worry about it. Unless one of you is much louder than the other. then you will need the box

Yes, such a thing does exist - it's called the sound guy. His job is more than trying to get laid - he's being paid to mix the set.

We're a starting up covers band, so won't have the luxury of a sound guy who can actively monitor the mix. We've just a wee litte 8 channel mixer which will be with us on stage.

Got friends that do the roady thing? Enlist the smartest one and teach him how to do it. He'll probably do it for beer.

We got a mate who's keen to come at the beginning of gigs to just check it all out make sure the mix is good to begin with. He's going to do that for beer. But nah we don't have someone to stay with us and monitor the sound all the time.
