Mixing Fetty Wap on Tour

Rapper on the road plays through Bose at HOB

Dallas, TX (May 17, 2018)—Rapper Fetty Wap recently wrapped up his sold-out ‘For My Fans Tour, backing the release of his For My Fans 3: The Final Chapter mixtape. Along for the ride was FOH engineer Michael Skatuler of Pittston, Pennsylvania-based Rockstreet Music.

For this latest Fetty Wap tour, Skatuler used the in-house consoles and PA’s at each venue, so his equipment setup was different each night. “This tour allowed me the opportunity to hear and work with a lot of different PAs and consoles,” commented Skatuler.

For a show in Dallas at the House of Blues, that meant mixing on the venue’s Soundcraft console and Bose Professional ShowMatch DeltaQ loudspeaker system—something which he’d never done before, despite having mixed a wide variety of artists, including Little John, Aaron Carter and the Four Tops, in addition to Fetty Wap

“I’ve had Bose equipment in my house, and it always sounded great, so I could not wait to hear what this PA sounded like. Frankly, it blew me away; I actually was really surprised how good it sounded compared to other systems I have mixed on in the past,” stated Skatuler.

“When we did soundcheck…I was really surprised with the crispness and the low end of ShowMatch,” he said. “The bottom end was great; it really had a lot of punch to it, which is exactly what I need for Fetty Wap. The vocal clarity was really good, as well as the consistency of the coverage area. I was very impressed.”
