Veteran monitor engineer Mark Drale was the first engineer in theU.S. to use the new EQ Station and MotoFader 64 from TC Electronic on alive show while mixing Michael McDonald’s sold-out event atFlorida State University in Tallahassee. Show Systems (Orlando)supplied the sound system for the Ruby Diamond Auditorium show, pairingtwo 8-channel EQ Stations with a Yamaha PM5000.
“I especially like the dynamics section and the ability tolink channels for stereo operations; it’s perfect forin-ears,” Drale said. “I couldn’t believe theycrammed that much parametric, graphic and dynamic control into such asmall package.” The compact size of the EQ Stations enable theunits to travel to Tallahassee as carry-on luggage.
“With only a short time before the EQ Station’s releasein the U.S., it seemed like a good time to take the EQ Station andMotoFader on a shakedown cruise,” said TC Electronic president EdSimeone. “Mike’s tour supporting his Platinum-sellingMotown CD seemed like the perfect venue to do the finaltesting.”
