New York, NY (December 7, 2017)—Eighties pop stalwarts Tears For Fears have a new greatest-hits set out, Rule The World, and a UK arena tour lined up for the spring, building on the momentum of a 29-city US tour they ran through with Hall & Oates this past summer. For all those shows, the band has monitor engineer George Squires on tap, and for the summer journey, he in turn brought along a Yamaha PM10 digital audio console, provided by Firehouse Productions.

Squiers took on the PM10 to ensure he kept moving forward, he said. “Boredom was starting to set in, and I needed a change in my life,” said Squiers. “I was very accustomed to using Yamaha products for so many years, back to the analog days, and the consoles were always consistent and reliable. I think for me, the decision to try out the PM10 was the Yamaha collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs that was very attractive…. The SILK function inspired me and the fact that it was signed off by Rupert Neve himself, added to the smile on my face.”

Squiers notes that along with the SILK function, he likes the fact that all of the Rupert Neve Designs-inspired Dynamics are standard on the PM10: “No need for a Waves rack next to my console, plug-ins, or USB sticks; I have access to amazing Dynamics onboard, and no extra gear rental fees. The on-board effects are fantastic as well.”
