FOH Engineer Dani Munoz Uses the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer for Magic! Tour
FOH Engineer Dani Munoz Uses the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer for Magic! TourFront-of-house engineer Dani Munoz (Flo Rida, Enrique Iglesias, Animal Collective, Snoop Dogg) chooses the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer on tour for Canadian reggae fusion band Magic!. Munoz comments, “My setup includes a dual 27-inch touchscreen setup, with one Waves SoundGrid® Extreme server, one Mac Mini running Windows 10 via Boot Camp and three DiGiGrid IOX audio interface units, and it’s all cleanly packed into flight cases with the right dimensions and weight to avoid oversize charges at the airport! For me, consistency is paramount. Most of our touring work includes fly dates on a crazy schedule. On some runs, we bounce from Europe to Australia, to America and then back to Asia. Finding the same gear in every country we go to is a big challenge, and flying with my own console, in the past, was simply not possible. Consistency from performance to performance was compromised as a result of this – that is, until now… There is no console out there that is as portable, dependable, powerful and sonically remarkable as the Waves LV1.”
