Canadian Duo Uses Yamaha CL Digital Console On International Tour

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Tegan and Sara’s 13-year career has seen them build an avid global following of fans and fellow musicians alike. Born in Calgary, Alberta, the Quinn sisters’ unique ability to bridge the pop and indie worlds has allowed their music to cross all traditional boundaries of genres, from being covered by The White Stripes to collaborating with superstar DJs such as Tiesto and David Guetta. Having sold nearly 1 million albums and touring with acts from The Killers to Neil Young, Tegan and Sara are on the road in support of their 7th studio album – “Heartthrob”.

A Yamaha CL3 digital audio console with two Rio3224-D racks has been provided by Gearforce of Coquitlam, BC, Canada for front of house mixing by Scottie Baldwin. Robert Nevalainen, President of Gearforce said that it became obvious early on that the CL line represented a leap forward in audio quality. “Yamaha managed to retain the Centralogic interface that so many engineers love, and the company has such market penetration, that it just made sense.”

“The CL Series sounds amazing; a perfect blend of the sonic purity and coloration add up to the most musical console on the market,” states Baldwin. “I’ve found the Dante networking to be not only simple to set up, but incredibly reliable as well. The simple setup of the Dante network gets me where I need to be: into the music. Baldwin says he makes extensive use of the console’s Premium Rack; specifically, the Neve compressors and EQ’s as well as the multi-band compressors.

Baldwin has been a Yamaha end user engineer from the first days of Yamaha digital consoles. In 2002, the Yamaha PM1D was the first large-scale digital console he used for a Prince tour. He’s used Yamaha consoles exclusively since. “The thought behind where an engineer’s hands and eyes will be during a show are most impressive, Baldwin adds, completely intuitive to live mixing, that allows maximum capability to focus on the most important element of all: the music.”
