So, let’s say you’ve taken the plunge and bought an iPod, filled it with backing tracks, and now you’re ready to use it on stage for the first time.
The question you’ll probably ask is “Where should I put it?”
After all, you’ve probably been used to having a midi module, a CD player or a minidisc deck built in to your rack or sitting on a table beside your mixing desk, amplifier etc…so where is the best place to position an iPod?
While the answer to this is always going to be a case of personal choice, the iPod has a unique advantage over other backing track playback machines – it’s small size. I believe that you should capitalize on this, therefore, you should consider positioning your iPod in a place that is near to hand.
