Marcel [Van Limbeek, monitor engineer] and I make all of Tori's albums using an analog desk, and this is the setup we've used over the years [live]; we like the way it colors the sounds. As far as mixing goes, it's identical to the mix that comes out of the studio console. I like the fact that everything can be accessed instantly on the [Midas] PRO6. I have the drums, bass, keyboards and piano on VCA groups so I can mix them. Then I have four channels of Tori's vocals, and I've found the PRO6 works better for this than anything else. [Two vocal mics to individual channels] are fed into a group that inputs back into three channels, with a different compressor on each, depending on what songs she's singing. I just push that fader up and un-mute one of the two vocals with the auto-mutes. Then those three channels are fed into another group that has the EQ inserted on it, which is an overall EQ for either vocal.
