PSNPresents: Mixing in the age of social media (VIDEO)

In the third video from March's inaugural event, Ben Hammond also has some advice for aspiring Saxon FOH engineers

Did you miss the inaugural PSNPresents, the rapturously received first instalment in a series of new social events hosted by PSNEurope, at the Ham Yard Hotel in London on 12 March? Never fear – for those of you too busy/lazy/scared of Soho to attend, over the next few weeks we’re going to be posting most of it on our YouTube channel for you to watch from the comfort of your lovely safe houses.

In the third video (the first two are at PSNPresents: Why would anyone become a live sound engineer? (VIDEO) and PSNPresents: Robb Allan, Chicky Reeves and Ben Hammond’s worst gigs ever), PSNEurope editor Dave Robinson asks our live panel – comprising engineers Robb Allan (Massive Attack, Manic Street Preachers), Ben Hammond (Deaf Havana, Saxon), Dave McDonald (Adele, Florence + the Machine) and Charles ‘Chicky’ Reeves (Grace Jones, Prince) – discuss the merits of virtual soundchecking, the expectations of modern audiences – and how they resist looking at their phones while they’re mixing.
