Four monitor mixes are mixed from FOH with up to six extra zones, three analog external effects units (for a visiting dub band), with eight record output groups, talk-to-stage and shout boxes between me and the stage. I use a 30-channel festival patch that covers a diversity of acts — from singer/songwriters to African drumming bands to 10-piece funk bands. With 32 output buses with parametric and graphic EQ on each one, I have an endless ability to zone different areas, set delay times, assign record groups and monitor sends. The two stages of EQ allow for a much more precise and musical approach to monitor and FOH mix EQ. All processing is available on every channel and bus at all times.
