Venue Profile System On Tour With Contemporary Country Vocalist Sara Evans

United States
FOH Engineer John Dauphinee Raves About Newest Addition to the VENUE Line

Daly City, CA (June 18, 2007) — John Dauphinee, FOH engineer for contemporary country vocalist Sara Evans, is among the latest adopters of the Digidesign® VENUE D-Show Profile™—the size-conscious alternative to VENUE’s flagship D-Show® console. Designed by Showco Nashville, Evan’s new VENUE system includes a 48-channel stage rack with 24 analog outputs via three 8 channel output cards in addition to the IOx FOH expansion card located in the local FOH rack. Also included are the ECx Ethernet remote control option and FWx FireWire recording interface cards that provides interface to a Mac PowerBook running Pro Tools LE®

Dauphinee, not a stranger to digital console formats, was sold on the VENUE D-Show Profile, raving about its ease of use, great sound quality, plug-ins, and reliability. “Being a former user of “another digital console’, I decided to jump right in head-first and order the new D-Show Profile,” says Dauphinee. “It looked perfect for the theater tour we are doing so I asked around and everybody said D-Show was the way to go. I downloaded the software and went to work while waiting for the {VENUE D-Show} Profile to become available.”

“I barely even looked at the manual,” continued Dauphinee. I received it two days before we had to load the truck and had one day of rehearsal before the tour began. It has been an amazing experience. The flexibility and configuration options open up so many possibilities that I find myself wanting to load-in early! Oh, did I mention it sounds great? Great product!”

Dauphinee has made unique use of plug-ins, in particular the Focusrite D2, which primarily handles equalization for the main PA system. Dauphinee claims to love the ability to use Profile just as he uses an analog console, but has now begun easing into working with snapshot animation for mutes, pan and effects settings on a per-song basis.
