Los Angeles, CA (October 26, 2015)–After a number of cancelled tours in recent years due to health issues, former Smiths frontman Morrissey is currently touring the world, having recently finished off the U.S. leg on a highpoint at Los Angeles’ FYF Festival. Along for the international jaunt is FOH engineer David ‘Milky’ Millward, overseeing a mix system built around Allen & Heath iDR10 MixRacks with an iLive-80 Surface at FOH and iLive-112 on Monitors.
The system’s appeal to Millward, he said, was that “besides the fact that it has great sound quality and the built-in effects are absolutely superb, the console is incredibly small; everything is in arms reach.”
Put to use at FYF Fest was the iLive MixPad app, which gave Millward the freedom to walk around the crowd and still control the iLive digital mixing system.
“It’s quick and efficient. I use a Cat 5 cable as a network connection through the iDR10 to FOH, which I connect to a gigabit router. I use it much like a hub to connect my laptop and my Wi-Fi for using the iPad app. The iLive MixPad is an essential tool I use when I’m walking around and setting up a system, especially where balconies are involved,” he said.
Currently touring Europe, Morrissey will also visit South America.
