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.”
