Hugh Johonson was last seen at FOH on the road with Vince Gill’s never-ending tour. Here, he talks about a piece of gear he can’t do without:

"I’ve become enamored with the Clair I/O unit: a crossover/EQ device that operates from a touchscreen. Mine runs from a Gateway Tablet PC and it’s hooked up to single-rackspace devices at the front of house via wireless Ethernet. You can walk the house and turn stuff on or off, or turn it up or down, or EQ it in an unlimited number of ways. During a soundcheck a couple of weeks ago, the monitor engineer said that we had some LF lobing problems onstage. I took the Tablet and stood behind the P.A. and made a -10dB notch between 80 and 85 Hz. I slid the stylus back and forth until I found the lobe and then it was gone. Vince, the drummer, and the bass player were truly impressed; awestruck. It’s one of the most incredible audio tools I’ve used. It’s the future, and I’m excited about the new digital wave in the sound business. Things will only get better from here."
