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.”

The Bose F1 Flexible Array Loudspeaker System Puts the Audience in the Middle of the Music at Live Tapings for the Syndicated Radio Show Live from the Divide
Acclaimed mix engineer and producer, Doc Wiley, began the live production with one Bose L1® Model II portable line array system in the theater, added a second and then combined those with two Bose F1 systems to create an incredibly intimate live music experience
Live from the Divide (LFTD) is a “A Celebration of the American Songwriter” — 60 minutes of some of the finest songwriters today performing in a 50-seat venue and recording facility in Bozeman, Montana. The show is broadcast on several regional public radio stations and distributed by the Public Radio Exchange (PRX), but its influence has been felt much further afield, with over 275 shows in its four years of existence. The small space that acts as the show’s live venue, a renovated icehouse from the turn of the century when Bozeman was still a frontier town, has been transformed by technology from Bose Professional.
