Harman Professional’s Soundcraft “Mixing with Professionals” (MwP) series is making a stop at The Fillmore in Charlotte, NC on September 17, 2013, hosted by Broadway and tour sound engineer Lucas “Rico” Corrubia.
Corrubia has more than 25 years of experience as a live sound engineer for an enviable number of high-profile gigs. He is currently a sound designer and consultant for the Donny and Marie Osmond UK arena tour and hip-hop dance troupe “Groovaloo” and has worked on Broadway and national shows including “Miss Saigon,” “Footloose,” “The Who’s ‘Tommy,’” “The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber” and many more.
He has also been a concert sound engineer for Lauryn Hill, the B-52s, Christina Aguilera, Van Halen, The Roots, Frank Sinatra, Liza Minelli and other top performers.
Corrubia will give MwP attendees in-depth training on the Soundcraft Vi Series consoles in a relaxed atmosphere that allows plenty of hands-on time. If participants bring a USB stick they can save the settings and take them on the road for their next gig, or keep working on their settings using the Soundcraft Virtual Vi offline editors, which is available free on the Soundcraft website.
“I have had the privilege of working with some of the biggest names in the music business and on Broadway, which is as demanding—and thrilling—as you can imagine,” says Corrubia. “I find Soundcraft Vi Series consoles to be equally adept and completely reliable in any live sound situation, whether it’s working in the same location night after night or mixing one-off concerts with rock performers who can be completely spontaneous.”
The Fillmore is located at 1000 NC Music Factory Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28206.
