Yesterday, I finished the setup of my Eigenharp with microphone, together with an additional dynamic microphone for Nathalie with in-ear monitoring for both. I’m feeding back Nathalie’s voice back into EigenD so that I can hear her and vice-versa.
I was afraid of latency, but it turned out great and the virtual channels of my Metric Halo ULN-2 once again proved invaluable.
It looks like we’re technically set for our first duo Eigenharp gig next Saturday.
It seemed to me that it would be interesting to draw out the whole routing and connection diagram, with all the gear I use. Even though this is quite specific to the capabilities of my Metric Halo audio interface’s virtual channels, I think it might help some people to understand what the possibilities are and how much functionality is gotten out of just a few pieces of gear.
On stage, this presents itself very cleanly with just me with my Eigenharp and Nathalie with a microphone.
If you want more information about this setup or about specific parts of it, let me know. I might be persuaded to record a walkthrough video with commentary about the parts that seem to interest people.
Here’s the list of all the gear I’m using:
- Eigenharp Alpha + leather strap
- Eigenharp Basestation Pro
- Eigenharp instrument cable 24m
- K&M Eigenharp stand
- DPA 4080 microphone
- Etymotic Research ER-4p earphones
- Yamaha FC-3 sustain pedal
- Moog Slim Phatty
- MacBook Pro
- Heil PR-20 microphone
- Microphone stand
- Shure PSM-200 wireless monitor
- Metric Halo ULN-2 audio interface
- Firewire and USB cables
- Microphone cable
- Power cables
- Various audio cables and connectors
- Collection of spare cables
