    Whether he’s touring the globe or recording with multi-platinum pop stars like Australia’s Kylie Minogue, England’s Sugababes or France’s Christophe Willem, bassist Dishan Abrahams is certain to be carrying his A-Designs REDDI tube direct box along with him.

    NYC-based indie pop band Fun., on a sold-out cross-country tour and heeding the challenge of creating a compact touring audio footprint, has front of house engineer Daniel Hodges selecting a pair of DiGiCo SD8 consoles (plus an SD-Rack). Utilizing the streamlined Optocore network, as well as having the ability to share one stage rack between front of house and monitor world (managed by Justin Doucette), ultimately made the small trailer limitations workable. “The band has a pretty decent-sized lighting package… View this post

Peter Bowman, monitor engineer for Lady Antebellum, was new to the Soundcraft Vi6 when he first started the tour, but has quickly adapted. “I didn’t care about a learning curve,” he states. “If it… View this post

Their recent purchase of eight-enclosure TTL33-A compact, 3-way active line array system and two additional TTS28-A subwoofers was a good start on that commitment. In addition, they have invested in six TT25-SMA touring 15in stage monitors and RCF’s proprietary RDNet system software, to integrate with the TTL33-A.

    With a self-contained operation that played about 265 live dates in 2011, multi-instrumental country music artist Amber Leigh recently acquired an Allen & Heath iLive-T112 digital mixing console with a companion iDR-48 MixRack. “It’s really important for us to have consistency and to be self-contained, so we needed something we could travel with whether we’re on a bus or an airplane,” says Holland Ryan, the band’s sound engineer.
