Christian Seger

Working for the past 18 months with new country sensation Pat Green, front-of-house mixer Christian Seger has settled into road life. Mix caught up with him as he was gearing for a show at the famed Gruene Hall (Texas).

What challenges do you face with Green?
Pat is a dynamic performer who never does the same show twice, and we play every size venue you could imagine. One night we might be doing 70,000 people at Rodeo Houston, the next night we're doing 17,000 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, and then a 300-seat club. It's my job to keep a consistent sound wherever we go.

Any interesting pieces of gear?
I added an SPL Transient Designer to my insert rack and am blown away by its performance. I hate using EQ to bring an instrument in or out of a mix, and the T.D. adds tons of punch without altering the timbre of the instrument.

You travel with a monitor rig and mics, picking up racks 'n' stacks at each venue. What is your lead vocal mic?
Pat's a difficult singer because he has so much energy and does a lot of off-axis singing. The Audix VX-10 has a smooth off-axis sound and minimal proximity effect.

What do you do when you're off the road?
I like riding and restoring motorcycles. I have a Honda VFR800 that travels with me in the gear truck. If the weather's nice, I can ride to the next stop!
