Jonathan Rado on recording "Do Hollywood" with the Lemon twigs: "Do Hollywood sounds remarkably clean and transparent. Despite having two larger mixing consoles, some of the tracks were pre-mixed on a small Allen & Heath ZED mixer. “I recorded the drums on two tracks with the kick and the overhead on one track, and the snare on the other track,” said Rado. “My basic setup was a Shure SM58 on the kick and an Akai dictation mic that came with a reel to reel on the snare. It has this really mid-range response, and I EQ-ed the hell out of it."more
I use this in a portable rig together with a QSC K12. The sweepable mids have become an essential tool for me for cleaning up any mud. However, the knobs can be quite fragile and come off.
The built quality is impressive. Great functionality for such a small mixer. Mixers are never perfect, but this one is getting close. I love, that I can listen into each track before mixing it in. Not many small PA mixers have this feature. The FX I use, sound really good, too. Low noise floor, also.
