Rita Ora Tour Relies On Allen & Heath GLD Digital Mixing System

Audio-Technica has released the latest in its series of endorser interview videos, this time featuring Rita Ora monitor engineer Stu MacAulay.

​MacAulay has been using Allen & Heath’s popular, compact GLD digital desk (distributed in the UK by Audio-Technica Ltd) for all of Ora’s recent headline shows in the UK. During the interview he – and Ora’s guitarist Jonas Jalhay – talk about the benefits of the desk’s diminutive but powerful nature, the quality of the on-board processing and its faultless reliability during a grueling run of Academy-size shows.

Summing up his thoughts on the GLD system MacAulay says, “I’ve been using all of the available inputs and outputs on the desk and all of the on-board effects every night and there’s been not even a glitch. It’s a proper little workhorse and Rita commented that the on-stage sound is the best she’s ever had during the UK tour dates.”
