Stockport, U K (August 4, 2004)–The new QUE-18 foldback mixer recently launched by Formula Sound has been chosen for use in major theatrical productions being launched in Spain, the Netherlands and now at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The productions of the Queen musical We Will Rock You and the ABBA-inspired Mamma Mia in Madrid, Las Vegas and Utrecht respectively, have a number of QUE-18 units utilized in the productions.
The QUE-18 has been specifically designed to provide foldback flexibility, especially in theatre applications. A dozen QUE-18s are being use in Madrid as well as Las Vegas and 13 in Utrecht. The sound designer for both these show is Bobby Aitken of Bobby Aitken Sound Designs, who contributed towards the original concept of the QUE-18. He noted, “I’ve used Formula Sound’s previous foldback mixers for many years and needed a larger version which was just as reliable and robust. The QUE-18 fits the bill perfectly and has now become my standard foldback mixer.”
