All Your FixIts In One Spot!

On the [opening dates for] U2 shows, the main end of the P.A. had two lefts and two rights—flown side by side—so one system was doing all the vocals and all the guitars, and the outside system was doing all the drums, bass, keyboards, etc. Normally, on my left and right I would have a Waves hardware piece, the BCL—the one with the Renaissance Compressor, a Maxx Bass and an L2 Ultramaximizer. I added another stereo bus for all of the shows we were doing with them and then it was really easy. I was able to drag up another rack and then copied and pasted my original three plug-ins—the Renaissance Compressor, Maxx Bass and L2 Ultramaximizer—into another rack and then instantly I had my settings available on two masters. That was a very easy way to handle having another output in a complicated system.
