DUBLIN, Ireland — It’s unusual enough to find a couple of identical digital consoles congregated in the crowded confines of monitor world, let alone a trio. But that’s precisely what happened when The Script played their sell-out homecoming gig at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium recently—their first stadium headline concert—when three Soundcraft Vi6 digital consoles could be seen in the stage wings, where they were sequentially pressed into monitor duties.

PA providers to the Irish trio were Adlib Audio, and crew chief Marc Peers says the Vi6 is the band’s monitor desk of choice. “The Script know precisely what they are looking for,? he notes. “Both Mark [Sheehan] and Danny [O’Donoghue] are former producers and they love the sound of the Vi6. Monitor engineer Paul Moore used all the board’s dynamics—and there was no outboard processing whatsoever.?
