Vincent Casamatta Chooses Waves SoundGrid® for High-Profile FOH Gigs
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, July 29, 2013 — Waves Audio is seeing a growing number of young cutting-edge live engineers turn to WavesLive tools, including front-of-house engineer Vincent Casamatta (OK GO, They Might Be Giants) currently on the road with AWOLNATION.
He notes, “Using WavesLive tools is a central part of what it takes to provide studio-quality mixes with consistency every night. I look at digital mixing environments, like DiGiCo, as a blank slate, and using Waves adds the color and punch to my mixes. The workflow is as simple as it gets. I spend nearly the whole show tweaking the Waves rack on my screen. Most importantly, it has the exact same feel and sound of Waves that we use in the studio, so it blurs the line with respect to what you can achieve in the studio versus live.” By employing WavesLive tools, Casamatta helps these artists achieve the level of polish attained in the recording studio.
His go-to plugins are C4 Multiband on guitar, which provides him a “super-simple way to mellow out too much bite”; SSL G-Channel into L1 and L2 Ultramaximizers and shaped with a PuigTec EQP-1A for the drum buss; LoAir on synth low-end for sub-harmonics to “tighten up the whole mix”; DeEsser on main vocals; CLA-2A on backing vocals; and H-Comp on the snare buss.
Vincent Casamatta is part of the growing trend among live sound professionals who are making the move to the next-generation workflow with Waves plugins and WavesLive SoundGrid®. Visit www.waves.com and www.waveslive.com for more information.
