Good one. No I had not done that.
I had everything panned in the middle for the mono mics and fully wide for the stereo pair above his head.
I was really thinking I needed to parallel compress his monitor mix so he could hear his fine details lifted up. But I don't see anyone else doing that.
My solution to all this really was those high isolation phones. You can keep the levels reasonable that way.
But giving him control of his own level in that mix may be the key missing step to getting him comfortable with that.
