Jon Sword gets a Feeling for CDC six5 July 2016
English rock band The Feeling’s FOH engineer Jon Sword has been touring with a Cadac CDC six console on their recent Jeff Lynne’s ELO arena support slot.
As well as the arena support dates, the CDC six was taken out, with the smaller CDC I/O 3216 stage box, on promo gigs for the bands new album, and also on a short warm-up tour, where it was also used to mix monitors from FOH.
Sword said: “I’ve been using the desk in 300 capacity venues and then on our arena shows with 14 mixes … ͞The signature Cadac pre-amp makes the CDC Series sound so great – it delivers that warm sound that I really like – it is a serious broadcast quality pre amp.
“I don’t really need to do much compression with the band with a pre-amp like this – it’s just doing it for me. ͞Plus, it’s a very simple console to use – operationally very musical and creative – and you can do things very fast; so I get to spend more time concentrating on the gig and not spending time trying to work my way around the desk.”
