API TV: Frank Ocean’s engineer on working with the Allen & Heath iLive

Dave McDonald, FOH engineer for Frank Ocean, has spoken about his experiences with Allen & Heath’s iLive system in a new video interview with the firm.

Speaking just before the singer-songwriter’s recent gig at Brixton Academy, London – his largest show in the UK to date – McDonald, who has been working with the American star for just over a year, explains how the iLive system has become his console of choice, and why he believes the ‘flow’ of a desk is as important as its technical capabilities.

He also reveals how the iLive’s compact size has made it popular with other members of the touring crew.
