sqmonitorsThe band use their own SQ-5 for monitor duties
Europe - Having recently purchased their own Allen & Heath SQ-5 digital mixer, British rockers Don Broco chose to pair it up with a full dLive system this summer for a short festival run across the UK & Europe, including appearances at Mad Cool (Madrid), Meo Mares Festival (Porto) and Truck Festival (Oxfordshire).
Supplied by SSE Audio, a DM64 MixRack fitted with gigaACE and fibreACE cards formed the core of the system; paired with a dLive S3000 surface at FOH (fitted with a Dante card), while a digital split from the gigaACE card allowed the band to use their own SQ-5 for monitor duties.
Adam Boole, FOH engineer and long-time user of Allen & Heath products, comments: “When we started this project, we needed to build a system that would work with the band’s own SQ-5 on monitors, luckily it was easy to achieve by having dLive on FOH. All I/O is set up through the DM64 MixRack, which just creates an extremely neat and tidy, yet small package.”
“SQ has a very similar workflow to dLive,” adds monitor engineer Scott Howarth. “It has an extremely small footprint and local I/O which I use for shouts and local festival drum subs / side-fills. It’s great that we can pair it with pretty much any I/O from Allen & Heath too, it makes this owned console easily applicable to a host of uses for the band.”
The band now prepare to head to Asia for a series of support shows before moving on to the US on a headline tour - both sets of shows will feature the SQ-5 covering both FOH and monitors and two AB168 stage boxes.
