At FOH, the versatility really just continues for me. As sound engineers, we all become very familiar with the sound of those 1/3-octave centers and think of our tunings in that respect. So many times, I've started thinking, “I need less 800 Hz in this system” only to put a filter in at 800 and find that it's not exactly what I was hearing. A sweep in either direction locates that problem zone at maybe 750 or 900, etc. Any parametric EQ can help achieve this but the Lake is one of the few where I can grab a tablet, sit in the audience and make my changes away from the console, which today seems to get put in worse and worse positions at venues.
