That sounds very nice!. Specially love the way the kick drum sounds and sits in the mix. Not so sure about the harder snare hits, though... maybe when all the tracks are laid down it wont stick out so much, but now it feels a bit too loud and strong. But that´s just me...

Very glad you found a way to deal with the cue mix issue. :thumbup:

Sensible!

When I play I usually use a pair of decent quality IEMs. Partly so I can have a reasonable monitor mix but more so because of the amount of isolation they give. They block out most of what's going on around me (including my playing!) - which I find particularly important in a theatre pit situation - and let me listen fairly quietly to my monitor mix. The same works on stage for rock and pop type stuff but if I were playing big band or acoustic jazz, I probably wouldn't be using a click and would want to listen to the room sound so would either wear no monitors or go for some fitted earplugs which use little plug in filters for different attenuations and don't colour things so much that it makes it difficult to listen.
