Seattle, WA–Combining creativity and optimal equipment usage, owner Dan Mortensen of Dansound Inc. recently used two APB Dynasonics ProRack-House H1020 mixers in linked mode to create a compact, fully functional 24 mono/8 stereo input console.
This highly effective setup proved to be ideal for the Fountain Lawn Stage at the 2007 Bum-bershoot music and arts festival at the Seattle Center. Overall attendance for the festival was well over 100,000. Artists performing at the Fountain Lawn Stage included the Vau de Vire So-ciety, Loop Station, Gooferman, and the Can Can Follies in a myriad, ever-changing program of music, dance, acrobatics, and feats of strength and skill.
Dansound Inc. owner Dan Mortensen comments, “The sound and feature set of these mixers is remarkable for a rackmount product, and we completely filled them up, using all 24 mono and 8 stereo inputs, Left and Right outputs, 5 monitor mixes, and 2 effects outputs. We still could have fit something on the Center output, but maybe next year. Having 8 available subgroups was a bonus.”
