    Yes, I know. When I first saw TouchMix at NAMM two years ago, I thought it was a toy, but while I was at Summer NAMM’s new TEC Tracks, across the aisle QSC was presenting “the world’s most powerful and portable easy-to-use compact digital mixer” with hourly live performances. TouchMix is well into its second year and second software revision, so I knew it was stable. Greg Mackie and Peter Watts consulted with QSC to design this unique little mixer,… View this story

    Four-time Grammy Award winner Stanley Clarke is considered a true pioneer in jazz and jazz-fusion as an acoustic and electric bass player over his 40-year career and ongoing international tours. By Clarke’s side for the past 14 years is his front of house engineer, Travis Rogers, using a Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console.  “What I like most about the CL5 are the mic pre-amps,” states Rogers. “They have a warm presence to them that remind me of analog pre-amps.” Rogers… View this story

    When a new piece of gear is specified for a theatre install, a variety of technical issues and requirements naturally influence the purchase decision. However, sometimes the final deciding factor ultimately comes down to a manufacturer’s people. That was very much the case when New Market, Maryland-based Acme Professional recently installed a DiGiCo SD9 at Shenandoah University’s Ohrstrom-Bryant Theatre in Winchester, Virginia. While the university has a noteworthy traditional music and recording program and the venue is used for everything… View this story

    The first “big” mixing consoles I owned were a 12-channel Kelsey and a 16-channel Yamaha PM1000. The Kelsey saw the most use because the PM1000 weighed in at 110 pounds, and that was without the wooden case I built for it. With a limited number of channels, buses and features available, I learned to be quite frugal when deciding what to mike onstage. For larger shows, the Kelsey sometimes served as a sub mixer for the drums and bass, feeding… View this story

    Sam Smith’s debut album, In the Lonely Hour, was one of the biggest of 2014, yielding three number one songs, three top 10 hits and six Grammy Award nominations. Smith spent the first half of 2015 on a whirlwind worldwide tour. Looking for a console that would best withstand the intensity of the tour while also supporting the singer’s unique sound, Smith’s front of house engineer Simon Thomas selected a Solid State Logic Live. L500 console supplied by Clair Global. … View this story
