From Country Thunder in Wisconsin to the North Dakota State Fair, Loy deployed RME gear for its reliability against grueling outdoor and touring conditions while mixing FOH for Kane Brown
Nashville, Tennessee, September 14, 2021— After a nearly year-and-a-half break from touring and live performances, David Loy, FOH engineer for country superstar Kane Brown, was ready to hit the road this summer with a packed schedule of country festivals, concerts and state fairs. And with a rigorous schedule based almost solely around outdoor shows, Loy knew he needed an interface and converter that could not only withstand the rigors of tour life but also unpredictable weather conditions. After using a Ferrofish A32 converter on the road for nearly two years and, according to Loy, “beating the life out of it with no issues,” he turned to RME’s MADIface XT interface and the M-32 DA analog converter to start out the summer touring season this past May.
“When you headline country shows and country festivals, you deal with a lot of unknowns, such as gear rattling around in trucks and unexpected weather conditions,” Loy said. “Basically, a lot of things you wouldn’t want to put electronics through. I needed something that could ride on a truck and not break, but also deal with the rain and dust. I needed something durable. And RME has been that for me. The RME MADIface XT and M-32 have handled it all. Every time I turned them on, they were good to go.”
