And now the facts: in a personal Rig Rundown, ALITA is showing us 5 vital components which are crucial in their rehearsal room:
Two speaker systems are positioned in the middle of all the band members. Vitali is thrilled that they are of such a compact size. However, this is not the only thing. With 300 W each, they are capable of awesome volume levels at concerts and even carry out the monitoring on open-air stages. Another benefit of this constellation is for the strings to hear the entire monitoring. The precise and compact monitoring reflects the band itself: without detours, pragmatic, well-chosen.
A digital mixer with 32 channels is positioned next to the speaker systems. Thus, it is possible to record rehearsal sessions. ALITA often does this to listen to their recordings directly and give each other feedback.
A pedalboard is positioned at Vitali's feet. In addition to the tuner for his guitar, it also accomodates effect units and DI boxes. Vitali uses an active DI box for the acoustic guitar, a passive one for the metronome and backing tracks.
4. PA system
The band is using a standard 10" PA speaker and a 12" subwoofer as an active PA system.
Microphones are of course indispensable, too. Beside vocal microphones, instrument microphones are also vital. According to ALITA, they are perfectly suitable for getting started. The big advantage for the band: "They come as a set including the necessary holders for acoustic guitar, violin and cello." Thus, you can use them for miking your instruments. ALITA uses four of them.
Last but not least, the drums have also got their own drum microphone set. For ALITA, DRUMSET-1 is the price-performance winner when choosing a microphone set for miking a drum kit.
