Gino Vannelli and V-Mixing System

Ross mixed at FOH using the Roland M-480 console with inputs from an S-4000-3208 digital snake. A split also fed the monitoring system where Matt Greco, monitor engineer, used the Roland M-380 digital console to control both IEMs for Gino and other frontline musicians and M-48 personal mixers for the rest of the band. Nick Moon, recording engineering, took splits off of the S-4000D REAC Distributor directly to two R-1000 Multi-Channel Recorders to capture all of the live audio channels redundantly. Moon was responsible for mixing and mastering the live concert in both stereo and 5.1 surround for the DVD.
