    How Did I Get Here and Other Distractions

    This summer I’m taking S3L on tour to mix FOH for my favorite band in the whole world, Massive Attack. I plan on writing about the equipment I use, production rehearsals, building my show file, plug-ins, virtual soundchecks, collaboration and my general philosophy of sound.

    The Show Must Go On

    Giving a Good Slap

    As ever when you finish a tour you have mixed emotions. Sad to leave your roadie comrades behind, delighted to go home to your family. No more back lounge rider, no more bus bunks. Things we might have improved, things that went well. Definitely feel that we left this tour…
