Time for another IEM (in-ear-monitor) mix video. This time for Dystopia, one of my favorite TesseracT songs to perform live.
The audio in this video is pretty much exactly what I hear on stage – except I’ve added in a little of the mix for front-of-house too, so you can hear more of the band.
I tend to have a drum-heavy IEM mix with next to no vocals as, on stage, I found that I need to hear myself and the metronome more than anything else.
If you’re interested in learning to play this track, definitely check out the recent transcription I made which is synced to a live rehearsal performance. It’s a modern transcription – how I play it now, rather than an exact album transcription. I like to keep things fresh. There’s a Guitar Pro file, plus the drum MIDI too.
