UK-based SSE Hire is providing InnovaSon digital consoles at FOH and monitors (a Grand Live for monitors and a Large Scale Live at FOH) for singer/songwriter David Gray's year-long world tour to support his fifth album, A New Day at Midnight. Because the InnovaSon boards include dynamics on every channel, the touring production has netted significant savings in shipping costs and outboard gear rentals…FOH engineer Hugh Johnson is using Summit Audio DCL-200 dual compressor/limiters on bass guitar and vocals for Vince Gill's current Back 2 Basics U.S. tour. “Generally speaking, keeping the vocal properly mixed is a matter of it being level,” says Johnson, who has worked with Gill since 1990. Another Summit Audio fan is engineer Robert Scovill, who used the DCL-200 during the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' Last DJ tour to give the band's drums and piano a “really nice harmonic rise”… Back on the road after a two-year hiatus, Phish is touring with a full complement of Sennheiser and Neumann microphones, including the Neumann KMS 150 vocal mic. FOH engineer Paul Languedoc uses five KMS 150s onstage for vocals and carries a pair of U87s for the piano.
