Tuesday Night Acoustic: Antoine Dufour in Berlin, Full Set
Here is my full set at the Astra in Berlin, Germany on November 15th 2012. Part of The Guitar Masters Tour, November 2012.
Since I’ve got loads of questions on my live set-up, here it is:
I go out of my guitar (K&K trinity mini) stereo. Send the pure pick-up into my Tonebone pz-pre preamp (made by Radial). The mic goes in the K&K blender for giving it the batterry power. Then the outputs of those goes into a small sound card (I use a Native instruments Komplete Audio 6), into my laptop with Mainstage (I used Logic pro as well before) . I did some eqs on both signal in the studio to get rid of some crap. I put some preamp simulators and a good lexicon verb plugin. Then, on the master out, I put some more eqs that I use to make a room eq with my guitar for each concert and room I’m playing in. I go over all the frets during sound check for notching more or less some frequency bumps. When I feel everything is pretty much even and flat, I let the PA guy do the rest.
