All the FixIts in one spot!

It's a very straightforward, live show. I like the R&B/funk attitude of the music, and it's always been something I've enjoyed to mix. Robert [R. Kelly] is very involved in the production from the programming to the producing; it's very clean-sounding audio and the band is extraordinarily good. Using the offline [DiGiCo] D5 editor, I can build all of my VCA, effects, label all my inputs and essentially turn everything on before I get there. That way, you're off to a more comfortable start, at least for me. I'm more prepared and I know where everything is. It doesn't take two to three days of production rehearsals to figure out how you would want to set up the layer/banks of the console because I've already done it prior to arriving for rehearsals.
