Pete Tong recently embarked on a run of dates to perform his anthemic Ibiza Classics with the 65-piece Heritage Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley. Vocal guests included Jessie Ware; and Ella Eyre and John Newman both performed their Rudimental collaborations. Furthermore, the legendary Candi Staton took to the stage, too, belting out You Got the Love some 30 years on from its original release.
While recording and mixing dance and classical genres have become popular, there are some major considerations when taking it out on the road. Not least, the ability to offer a large number of musicians their own monitor mix. Enter myMix, a revolutionary personal monitoring system, which simplifies the monitoring process, while maintaining pristine quality sonics.
Ron Peeters, who is the regular monitor engineer for the Heritage Orchestra, explains the reasoning for selecting myMix for the tour:
“We were looking for a hard wired monitor system that could handle sufficient inputs to have at least the ability to give every musician a direct out of their own mic, or a blend of both mics on one instrument, so they were able to control their own level in their mix," Peeters explains. " So the main purpose of our search was to find a system that could handle that many inputs. myMix is unique in this way, because it gives us the required 54 stage mic inputs/direct outs, and 30 channels of sub-mixes; and there are no other systems that can handle this many channels.”
