Pure and Simple - The Lightning Seeds Tour with Spirit Digital 328

--Ian Broudie's Lightning Seeds have just completed their UK tour with a Spirit Digital 328 at the heart of their live set-up.

Positioned front of house adjacent to the main console, the Digital 328 had all the effects snapshots and samples used by the band running through it. The man responsible for working it was John Gray,

'Having recorded and modified the sound through various sound checks you can just get back to exactly what you want at the touch of the Spirit¹s button,' explained John, 'and you can modify and save the new snapshots, depending on the size of the venue.'

'If you¹re used to using an analogue desk it's very easy to use ­ much easier to operate than other digital desks I've used. The E-Strip's a great idea and great design. It's really clear and simple. I¹m able to update the snapshots every night without any problems.

Spirit Digital 328 is used by a huge range of artists including Asian Dub Foundation, the Chemical Brothers and the Manic Street Preachers.
