Ed Sheeran tours Australia with DiGiCo SD11i

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: A DiGiCo SD11i digital mixing console is currently being utilised on Ed Sheeran’s tour, which so far has seen the double Brit Award winner visit Australia, the US and Europe.

‘I’m a big DiGiCo fan and I’ve been using their flagship SD7 for a long time,’ said FOH engineer Chris Marsh, who has worked on the entire Ed Sheeran tour. ‘When I started working with Ed, I had just finished working with Diana Ross, where I was using an SD7. I wanted to continue using it because I love everything about it: the EQ, the way all the dynamics work, etc. I also really like the SD range’s onboard effects, which are really useful. But it would be overkill to take a desk that big out with a solo artist such as Ed.’

Mr Marsh required a solution that would give him all the sonic and functional advantages of the SD7, but in a smaller package at a more appropriate cost level for this tour’s needs.

‘The SD11i was the perfect solution,’ he explained. ‘It had just come out when I was specifying the tour and it’s brilliant! Sonically it really is everything the SD7 is, but in a much smaller package. It feels the same, it sounds the same, the mic pre amps are the same, the EQ responds in the same way, but with the right level of I/O for this tour.

‘I have the latest software installed, which is what makes it an 11i rather than just an SD11,’ he adds. ‘This means that I get tube pre amps to play with, more effects, more multi band compressions, and I’m delighted with it. It really has worked out perfectly,’ he enthused.
