Even though I was still reeling from the flu of last week, Trevor’s live event was yesterday and I headed out with my portable rig in tow. I used Pro Tools 11HD on a MacBook Pro and the software was rock solid. I was able to track the whole event without incident. Here are a few photos from the evening.

Once the lights went out, it was very dark in the booth. Fortunately I had no problem seeing the screen.
This is the splitter. A veritable maze of cables going from the stage to the console and split out to my recording rig. It took me a few hours to get everything connected and working properly.
This was the main console for the venue — a Yamaha M7 digital board. We had a full video crew on hand with six cameras plus computer visuals and lighting.
My 16-channel portable rig. 16 pure sounding Millennia preamps.
My view of the event from my workstation. Dale, the live sound engineer, had a much more stressful evening. As long as I kept everything gain staged appropriately, I could sit back and enjoy the music. He, on the other hand, had to mix things in real-time. On a strange board. With another engineer looking over his shoulder.
A wonderful event and the team did an amazing job.
