FOH Luiz Mazzei Chooses Waves Live Tools for Brazilian Rock Veterans Capital Inicial

— Mazzei was an early adopter of Waves’ SoundGrid® platform in the live realm —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, May 8, 2013 — Waves Audio is pleased to see its tools used by the likes of Luiz Mazzei, a talented engineer both in the studio and at front-of-house. Currently, Mazzei is using Waves SoundGrid® platform and an assortment of Waves plugins as FOH engineer for Brazilian rock veterans Capital Inicial.

Luiz Mazzei has been a user of Waves plugins in the studio since 2001. As Waves has moved deeper into the realm of live sound in recent years with the introduction of SoundGrid and other products, Mazzei was able to do what he had always envisioned: “I always felt like I was missing out by not using Waves plugins in Live,” he recalls.

After attending a workshop with FOH engineer Greg Price (Ozzy Osbourne) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Luiz became even more interested in using Waves plugins at FOH, and he has not worked without them since. He notes, “Nowadays, as an FOH for the band Capital Inicial, I travel with an Allen & Heath iLive 112 console, M-Waves card and a Waves SoundGrid Impact Server, and the Waves SoundGrid Essentials bundle, plus the C6 Multiband Compressor, H-EQ Hybrid Equalizer, LoAir Subharmonic Generator, MaxxVolume and NLS plugins and many more”

He continues, “As I have been working as a producer in studios for more than 20 years, I am constantly concerned with getting a live mix that is similar to a studio mix. I record all the shows and do a virtual sound check utilizing the Recording and Playback capabilities of Waves SoundGrid before every show, striving to recreate the album sound. I manage to do this due to SoundGrid, which enables me to work safely and ensure the quality of my work. My favorite Waves plugin, which I use the most, is the C6 Multiband Compressor, and I use it on almost all my channels. On the master, I use the C6 and the Waves NLS Non-Linear Summer, which brings analog qualities to the mix. I’m extremely happy with the results that I am having with WavesLive Processing and Virtual sound-check capabilities in my shows. Waves is great!”

Luiz Mazzei is part of the growing trend among live sound professionals who are making the move to the next-generation workflow with Waves plugins and WavesLive SoundGrid. Visit www.waves.com and www.waveslive.com for more information.
