New Concert Film Being Prepped For Theatrical Release

WILTSHIRE, UK: Having mixed extensively at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios throughout the 90s, Ben Findlay is primarily a live engineer these days. Having mixed live shows for Gabriel, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Robert Plant, Cat Stevens, Sting and other major artists, he clearly enjoys 'life on the road.'

Two concerts from Peter Gabriel's "Back To Front Tour" were filmed last October at London's O2 Arena, and are currently being edited for release as a 4K Cinema feature this year. Findlay is mixing the audio for the movie and DVD release, utilizing Real World Studios' Dolby certified Exigy speaker array.

He reports the Sonnox Oxford EQ is playing a crucial role in the project, with the GML Option a particularly helpful asset. "Most of the EQ's in this mix are Oxfords, and the Inflator is my secret weapon," Findlay says. "I use it primarily on Peter's vocal channel, to give it a presence that dominates the mix. It's proved extremely effective in bringing extra life to the drum bus as well."

"Oxford Reverb is also a great favorite of mine, Findlay adds. "It's really flexible, you can tailor it do exactly what you want. There's a very comprehensive EQ section built in to the reverb too. I'm using it on the drums, on some of Peter's vocals, and on David Rhodes' acoustic guitar. With two guitars on some songs, I need to separate them. I find using a subtle amount of Oxford Reverb helps define a space for each instrument.

"When we played the show mix back to Peter we put the 'Warmth Function' on the Dynamics plug-in across the entire mix, which he loved. So the whole show has that process added to it in varying degrees. That made the sign-off process much easier and was a bit of a lifesaver! Sonnox feels to me like a very solid brand, and the support is always great," Findlay concludes.
