I had a great time working the SBCC Music Now 2012 show April 29th.  Setup the monitor wedges, EQs, and amps. During the show, I worked the monitor mix with my partner in crime Michele on the Midas Venice F32.  We recorded all 32 tracks into the school’s Pro Tools 10 HD rig. Check out the Music Now […]
