“I’m on tour right now playing my last album. And this is the exact same setup I used in my recording studio to make the album which was basically recorded live, it’s just wired in a different way,” she explains.
“In the studio it went through a sound card and computer software and here its all live going through a mixing desk, which involved learning how to patch things in an even more physical way than going through the software.”
Colleen then takes you through each component, and shares schematic diagrams of how her set-up changes between songs.
