Currently out in support of her latest, Bring Ya to the Brink, Cyndi Lauper is hitting mid-sized theaters across the U.S. before heading to Europe. Mix caught up with the artist's second True Colors tour (which also features The B-52's, Andy Bell of Erasure and comedian Wanda Sykes) at Berkeley, Calif.'s Greek Theater.

FOH engineer Kevin Sproatt is mixing on a Digidesign D-Show Profile using onboard plug-ins: BF3s and Crane Song Phoenix. At monitor world, Michael Mule is manning a DiGiCo D1, one of his longtime favorite boards because he can “see everything at once without having to scroll through pages to get where I want to be,” Mule says. “I'm not using any plug-ins, but Cyndi has a Daking mic pre and EQ that we insert on her mic that goes to her ear mix [Shure PSM 600 transmitters with Sensaphonics ear molds]. Her mic is a standard Shure 58 RF that we put a 57A grille on.”?

Eighth Day Sound systems tech Kyle Walsh explains the P.A.: “12 L-Acoustics V-DOSC per side with three dV-DOSC downfills, six d&b B2 subs per side, four d&b Q1s per side for side hangs and four d&b Q7s for front-fills. The V-DOSC is powered by Lab.gruppen amps; everything else with d&b D12s. A Dolby Lake controls the system.”
