Front-of-house engineer Daniel Nygaard is currently on the road with The Perishers, who fill the opening slots for the current Sarah McLachlan, Tracy Bonham and Aqualung tours. Nygaard will soon find himself touring with the band in the UK and throughout Europe.

The Eventide H8000A provided me all the effects and processing I needed in a single unit. It essentially replaced four other dual-engine effects units that I used to use with The Perishers. The H8000A allowed me to add input equalizers for all the effect sends routed to the H8000A. I used the H8000A for six reverbs, instruments and vocals, as well as one vocal delay throughout the set. Having that many effects could be a problem. With the H8000A, I was able to easily create my own presets that mixed all effects down to two stereo outputs, streamlining the setup process. Effects and levels for each song were also pre-programmed. When the set started, all I had to do was simply press one preset button and the effects mix was ready. It was much more efficient than selecting presets from four different units.
