Yamaha 02R Digital Mixing Desk..

The Cluny is a cracking little venue, always a good gig in there. 

How are you finding the DM? Never had more than a brief glance at one to be honest.

Hey Mike..

The Cluny was cool - he'd got it set up lovely especially the parallel vocal group with a TL Audio 5021 inserted. The other outboard was equally impressive with Drawmer 441s on the 'normal' channels and DBX 160s on the vocals, XTA Eq units on L/R & wedges plus Lexicon FX units - best analogue setup I've ever used.

The RCF boxes were nicely setup with plenty of horsepower on tap although the room would benefit from a little treatment.

As for the DM, it's very impressive to say the least. I've only used it on an acoustic night (3 channels - it'll do 96!) but it'll go into service at the studio hopefully later this week (I'm waiting on some Y splits) as there's a live album waiting to be mixed. It's like an 02R but on mega steroids with a gazillion more options, channels, routing facilities and fx - like I said, very impressive - can't wait to get this album started on it! 😀

Just a quick snap of small, medium and large.. The DM will go down to the studio tomorrow and hopefully be in service by the evening; the 02R (dual unity) will stay here at home and the 01V will likely go to the school to as it's small and handy..

Despite all of the Covid-19 madness, I'm doing my best to keep the music going by taking half of the setup from the currently closed Rigger Venue. As can be seen, my 'Dual Unity' 02R is in service.

It's nearly 9 years since I started this thread and six years or more since I purchased my first 02R. Despite all the time and as we head into April 2020, I'm still very happy with them. 😀

Hmm, makes my Yamaha MG06 look positively pathetic (to be honest, in a few days of ownership I beginning to think it is).

Sad times this month, finally parted with one of my 01v, and the second is up for sale! 

I have got this little beauty in now though - picking up a bit of streaming and recording work in the absence of any gigs so it made sense to stop hiring in and get something more capable!

Looks lovely, Mike - haven't had my hands on an SQ yet but they look the mutts nuts! I always enjoy A&H products when on tour - a Qu or iLive is always a welcome sight.. Glad you're still at it too!

DM2000 still going strong after 12 months in service - I couldn't do without it now..

Another Soundcraft 328XD I acquired which I'm using in my live room..

The ancient GL3000 still running although it doesn't see as much action these days..

And of course, my beloved 02Rs - they're all still going although the one at The Rigger hasn't done much recently..

Good to see your collection still being put to good use, glad the DM has proved a worthwhile investment!

I'd highly recommend the SQ. I'm a big dLive fan, and you can see the lineage in it. Sounds wonderful and is incredibly powerful for the price and size. Was a bit of a punt getting a new console given the state of the industry this year but already had a few jobs in that I couldn't have done without it (without paying to hire in) so I'm feeling slightly less regret as each week passes!

How's this year been for you?

Thanks Mike, although strangely, I still prefer the 02R / LS9 'three knob / four button' EQ control rather than the DMs two per-band layout but that's about the worst thing I can say about it. 😎

Really pleased the SQ is working out for you, I can't say as I've heard a bad word about them on any level. Good to know the lineage has carried well - they got it right with the Qu - it's superb especially given that it's now a few years old and in an entry level position. It's great to see you've got work too - I have a few industry friends who are frankly a little lost at the min.

As for work, it's been 'interesting' to say the least! The studio is plodding along nicely and despite being the centre of my worry back in March, it's the least of them now. I have a steady stream of work both remote and in person plus some of the projects have been really interesting and genuinely enjoyable. On the live front I've sort of done one show but it was at a closed venue largely for a multi-track live recording to be remixed and streamed later. Suffice to say no touring work at all which is a little sad..
