New York, NY (November 30, 2018)—Hozier continued the world tour behind his Nina Cried Power EP by touring sold-out venues in Europe, with FOH engineer Steve Pattison in tow at each show handling an Allen & Heath dLive mixing system.
Supplied by Adlib, the set-up includes a dLive S7000 surface fitted with both Waves and Dante cards for virtual soundcheck and live multitrack recording. Additionally, a dLive DM64 MixRack fitted with a superMADI card is placed at FOH, which is used to feed broadcast multitrack during festival shows.
“I get a lot of engineers come up to me after the shows to ask what outboard gear and plug-ins I’m using,” said Pattison. “They’re always stunned when I tell them it’s all onboard and there are no external effects, outboard or plug-ins at all…. Pretty much anything you’ll ever need is on there and the FX and processing are ever expanding with each firmware release.
“FX and reverb feature heavily on Hozier’s recordings and there are so many great sounding reverb pre-sets with dLive that get you right where you need to be instantly. I’ll simply ask Andrew (Hozier) what compressors and reverbs were used in the studio and I can always dial them all in for each song, quickly and easily.”
In December, the tour will head to the UK and Ireland for another fully sold-out run, before shipping out to Australia next Spring.
