Right, this is simple but quite effective What i learned from college is that when it comes to playing live (especially some of our gigs where we had 10 bands+ running on a very tight schedule) making the life of the stage engineer is essential. So below is a simple Stage setup that i supply to every engineer every time i play live. It makes the engineers life a lot easier when he has to deal with so many musicians and so many different setups and lets face it the last person you want in a pissy mood is your engineer because he can make or break your sound. Every musician has their different requirements (unless you simply dont give a shit about your sound and you hope your engineer knows what he's doing) such as mic setups, stage fx, what you want in your monitors etc Another prime example to use this is when it comes to playing festivals with professional musicians and engineers you dont want your band to walk in there like a pack of dumb dumb's when your engineer starts asking example "what processing you want on your drum kit's mic's on your stage left's guitar's monitor". If you dont know and your an unorganized fuck-up then lets face it... thats not a good image for you & your band and your knowledge of your work espcially if there are "hotshots" walking around.

It means they can get on with what they have to do and i can get on with setting up my gear without having back and forth conversations about compression and gating etc EDIT: obviously if your playing in a tiny venue with a coked up engineer this is not necessary but sooner or later your going to be asked for one of these when it comes to playing at a large festival or gig with processional musicians and engineers. Its better to be prepared.
