This article presented by Audio Pro International interviews Dave Millward, FOH engineer for Morrissey. I chose this article for my collection because Dave talks about the console he uses for FOH currently, the Allen&Heath iLive-80. Dave likes using the console because the console has 56 inputs in a compact desk. Dave also uses the iPad compatibility to be able to mix from different locations in the venue, checking to make sure it sounds good for the audience and not just the FOH mix position.

This source provides reasoning and supportive examples as to why Venue is the preferred live show software by numerous professionals in the industry.

 

Pros:

Cons:

- If you're not used to this software and trying something new, you could risk the chance of ruining someones live show.

I chose to "scoop" this video because John Cooper, FOH mix engineer for Bruce Springsteen, tells us how important it is to have miltiple backup systems. John doesn't have one backup, but two. This way when he is on tour he does not have to worry about losing everything.
