on-stage personal monitoring...loop-related, i assure you

the band i play with, mainframe theory, employs loops
all over the place.  it's great because it allows me
to become 5 guitarists and it serves as a metronome,
which is great for those drummers that like to speed
up when they get excited.

but...making sure that everybody can hear the guitar
is difficult.  keeping up with the drummer isn't
difficult...keeping up with the guitar is.  i'm
thinking that personal mixes via headphones is the
only way to ensure that everybody gets a great mix, so
i want to know if anybody is doing this.  i'll
probably need to mic the bass and guitar and feed that
somehow to three sets of phones for myself, bassist,
and most importantly, the drummer.
