Rehearsal facility Soundcheck Austin (sister company to Soundcheck Nashville, where the Mix Nashville event is being held in 2012) installed Allen & Heath iLive-T112 digital mixing systems (one for each of its six rooms) and an iLive-T80, providing full digital mixing setups. Operations manager Greg Morton selected the boards and is responsible for fulfilling the needs of incoming clients, including, most recently, Lauryn Hill and Edie Brickell.

“I really like the design of the MixRack, with inputs, outputs and DSP all together in one place,” Morton says. “Any input, any output, can be anything, anywhere, at any time. You can lay the console out pretty much any way you want, and that kind of flexibility is really important with all the different artists we have coming through. A few minutes of reprogramming, and we can put those inputs wherever the client prefers. For touring engineers, a console is a console; they really just need some basics. For instance, Edie Brickell’s engineer had never used an iLive before. I sat down with him for all of 15 minutes, gave him a basic rundown of the console, and he was off and running, labeling channels, setting up comps and gates, and getting set up. Very easy, and he ended up being really happy with it. The same thing happened with Lauryn Hill’s engineer.”
