Ozzy Osbourne: Channel by Channel

FOH Engineer

Ozzy Osbourne, Bon Jovi, ZZ Top

In this edition of Greg's List, I'll be sharing details of my setup for Ozzy Osbourne.
Here are a few things to know:

  1. This is my list of mics; your list will work just as well with the plugins.
  2. Experiment with my plugin choices; experiment with your own choices as well.

OK, enough of the intro stuff. Let's get right to the heart of my work: plugins. I like to use plugins instead of the console EQ and dynamics for all my sound. My reasoning here is that I can pick from all these great sounding tools instead of the same EQ, gate, comp, and multi-comp that are in channel after channel of the console. This method gives me excellent distinction and character from input to input that you simply don't get from the console. Download my presets and hear for yourself!
