For those of you that dont spend your time in the rarified air of the rock 'n roll world touring circuit, the introduction of Digidesign's Venue and DShow live mixing desks, might just have passed you by. Based on the DSP power that drives their ProTools HD systems, they give the live engineer access to the power of HDTDM processing - EQ, dynamics, delays, reverbs etc etc but actually in real-time on the live inputs of the console. This power, when linked with a ProTools recording setup allows the engineer to record soundchecks, gigs etc discretely - that is each channel on the desk can be recorded to a corresponding track, submixes, the main LR outs too - and then replayed back through the same channel again for perfect recreation of the performance. This means the band can sod off to the bar basically forever - or until they are required to perform the gig itself... In this in-depth interview (16mins) we talk to Robb Allan, who's a front of house sound engineer of great experience, about just what this means for the touring show.
