Jim Ebdon Selects SSL Live For Sam Smith Tour

“I love the feel of the album, and I love the sound of it, and I wanted to recreate that. So the SSL was a no-brainer.”

OXFORD, ENGLAND — Front of House Engineer Jim Ebdon (Maroon 5, Annie Lennox, Sting, Prince..) is currently on a world tour with Sam Smith following the release of Smith’s new The Thrill of It All album. To accompany him on the tour, Ebdon has chosen the Solid State Logic L200 console, supplied by Capital Sound, London.

"We did four weeks of band rehearsals for this show, so I had time to fine tune mixes and hone instrument sounds. I was using the L200 as a recording console for some of it, so I could record mixes and play them back to the band.

"Once we got to our first arena for production rehearsals, those mixes translated really well onto the big sound system; I was really pleased with the sound quality and the way it all worked out."
