Multi-Platinum Artist & Guitarist Neal Schon Hits the Road on Solo Journey with DiGiCo SD8

Multi-platinum recording artist and guitarist Neal Schon hit the road this March on a mini-tour before heading to the studio with Journey for the band’s forthcoming release. The Neal Schon Band made its debut at the 2010 NAMM Show and took to the highway on a brief swing through clubs in and around the West Coast, including a live recording for a future DVD at the historic San Francisco Fillmore Auditorium.

Working primarily with in-house production staff and gear, the crew carried a mic package, cables, stands, stage boxes and a splitter box all owned by Journey. Additionally, engineer James McCullagh, arranged a DiGiCo SD8 to accompany him at FOH on the tour, after extensive experience mixing on international tours on DiGiCo consoles with Lucinda Williams and others.

Over the course of the 10-day rehearsal in Journey’s Bay Area warehouse, McCullagh set the SD8 up in a separate room outfitted with a set of studio monitors. In that time, he was able to lay out the console for the tour—which comprised 40 inputs excluding doubled channels), plus 8 outputs for Left, Right, Subs, Fills, Smart, Talkback and Record L&R—and to experiment with mic selection and onboard effects/compression.
