Skitzo Fonik Stage Plot & Tech Specs
For Production Info, Please Read:
For 2016, we have an updated stage plot, unfortunately not shown here yet. We are working on posting the new layout, but until we do, please take note that we no longer have a keyboard player in the band. Matt retired from music, so we have instead been using some backing tracks via MacBook Pro, as well as triggered in real time via the electronic drum module. We need NO MONITORS, as we are on our own IEM system. We use a digital Behringer X32 Rack mixer to host and run our entire show. We no longer use a splitter unit. All lines are fed into our X32 Rack, and we control our own IEM monitor mixes, as well as mix FOH via iPad. We need only to connect to FOH PA speakers (which we DO NOT carry at this time).
For individuals or companies hired either by us or a third party that are providing a PA for us to use, please know that we employ our own technician. It is your gear, professionalism, and your expertise in the given situation that you have been hired for, and we are completely appreciative, thankful, and respectful of all that. We ask that you work with us and our tech, Jordan, because he understands our complicated show and what is needed every moment of it. You know your gear and the environment it's in, he knows our show. And our show is non-stop as we blend songs together and feature different vocalists along the way. Nothing is worse than those first crucial vocal moments and cues getting lost in the mix - thus lost in translation between band and audience. Whether he is mixing FOH or not, Jordan is always with us, because he also provides help hauling and setting up the gear for us. So even at the lowest involvement level, he is still the official liaison between band and production. And we want the show to be as successful for everyone involved as possible!
Call our tech, Jordan Weyh (pronounced "why"), with any technical questions regarding Skitzo Fonik's setup: 605-201-7551 (call/text/lv msg).
Here are quick technical references for our stage plot. You may also download PDF files of each image for your records. Simply take away the Keyboards, Key vocals, and Keys rack. Replace with two mono track lines (one from laptop, the other from electronic drums).

A quick note about the drum plot: The drummer has several different kits that he chooses to use depending on various factors of the show. THIS represents the standard kit setup, however it may change. Some kits are larger than listed here, and would be discussed with the event's technical consultant in advance. (It's rare the larger kits are used). Some kits are smaller 4 or 5 piece kits. This plot is provided as a reference only, and serves as a suggested minimum input availability for the drums. If you go by this plot, you will have enough inputs available to cover us 99% of the time - and again, you'd know in advance if a larger kit's use is planned.
