Used for vocals on the Dynamite tour, as stated by mix engineer Rick Pope in this January 1, 2006 Mix Online interview.

Despite reservations, Pope mixes the show sans feedback on a Yamaha PM1D Version 2 digital system, and records both shows to Kay’s Pro Tools rig, which he bought when the band began work on Dynamite. “We’ve been recording every show since 1999, so we have about 250 shows on either DA-88 or Pro Tools,” says Pope. “Most of them we may never even listen to, but Jay likes to have them on file.”

Pope mixes Kay’s vocals, which are sung through a Sennheiser 935 wireless mic, through a Manley VoxBox and an Eventide H3000. Save for an occasional nod to a Lexicon PCM81 or 91, all other processing comes through the Yamaha desk.

By the time of this Britannia Row article from the Automaton tour, Pope had retired the Dynamite-era setup in favor of a Yamaha PM10.

"For Jamiroquai, everyone knows Jay Kay drives a Ferrari. He’s my boss and this is the Ferrari of desks. But consider this, I used to use a TC6000 off board, a Manley Vox Box and an H3000 – they’re expensive bits of kit. Not anymore. The on-board processing and effects are as good or better than anything else out there.”
