In this episode, we’re joined by Howard Page, senior director of engineering at Clair Global, who’s also served as front of house engineer for top artists such as Sting, Phil Collins, Van Halen, Paul Simon, James Taylor and many more. We spend most of our time talking about his approach on tuning and optimizing large-scale concert sound systems, a recent article on ProSoundWeb
Noted front of house engineer Jim Yakabuski also stops by to offer some thoughts on system optimization, a topic of great interest to him. In addition, we spend some time on Howard’s history with consoles, including his transition from analog to digital along with his work on the Studer Vista 5 SR.
