Dave Bracey is certainly no stranger to the DiGiCo D5 Live digital mixing console, having used it on his tours of duty with Robbie Williams since it was first launched back in 2002.

This he has duly been doing on Grammy nominated Mika‘s Live in Cartoon Motion tour, where he is utilising the D5 for both mixing and recording each show, the latter of which he is doing on this occasion via MADI to a Metacorder.
