Joined a couple of years ago but have been mainly lurking and learning a lot about Cantabile from those of you (including Neil) who have more experience with it than I do. Will be using version 3 live for the first time at our upcoming autumn gigs. Various tricks and tips posted here have been very helpful in guiding me through all the setup possibilities, so thanks to all who share their knowledge and suggestions.
I have actually yet to meet Neil in person, but there are strong connections between Neil’s band IQ and Big Big Train. We share the same (hugely talented but modest) sound engineer, Rob Aubrey, and (I’m told) IQ were an early influence/source of encouragement for BBT back in the early 90s.
I can tell you it’s a fantastic and reassuring thing to know that someone as skilled as NDV is guarding one’s back! I was also a long-time XTC fan, so it’s been a privilege to work with Dave Gregory. He’s also one of the nicest chaps you could hope to meet.
