Another item that Richard mentions using on his SoundCloud's comment page is the Midas 160: "forgot to say how the modular bit is working, have 10 outputs from the modular into the Midas 160 and 7 outputs from the midas160 into the modular. Midas is really good for this as, I use the group out sliders and the aux out sliders, which are really nice and fast to set on the fly, can play them as opposed to turning a knob which is a slower to do in live situ. Do a little bit of patching on the go but automate a few different routings with the WMDmatrix, I used to use the Alyseum matrix for that but ran out of room, need a bigger case..as always…still its great trying to work with a limited set of modules, wish there was a eurorack matrix module with built in attenuverters per routing like the totally awesome Buchla 210e."more
Joe Don Rooney’s guitar tech, David Graef, describes the guitarist’s rig as “a fun one. It’s a dry/wet/dry rig with a center 4x12 cabinet, with just the dry amp and two Mathers 1x12 cabinets for the effect left and right signals. We start with two dual Shure UR4D wireless units that go into a line selector made by RJM Technology. From the selector, the signal goes to my pedal board, where I do the majority of his patch changes, and then returns to an amp selector that feeds signal to one of two Bogner Ecstasy 101B heads [miked with three Shure SM57s and a Royer ribbon, pictured], a Blackstar Series One 200 head and a Diamond Decada head, and then out to the 4x12 dry cabinet. I take a line-level signal and feed the outboard effects [TC Electronic D-Two, Fireworx and Reverb 4000]. They return to and are blended through a Midas Venice 160 console and sent to a VHT 292 amp that powers the two Mathers 1x12 cabinets onstage for the wet signal.more
