The M
idas live webinars are coming thick and fast and our teams are working hard to bring you valuable technical information and fascinating industry conversations. Next up Midas brand leader Pete Sadler is joined by Russell Tite, a sound engineer that has worked across the industry spectrum from touring to the studio to broadcast and has been a proud Midas user throughout. Russell has recently been touring with some of the UK's top music acts spanning several genres, manning various generations of Midas Consoles and juggling several challenging acts at once. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, this is a great time to have your questions answered by an engineer that has seen and done it all! Join us as we discuss touring life, mixers and all things audio!

 

Russ started getting more serious into music by playing the guitar at around 15 having been a keen athlete up to that point.

After turning down a job offer from British Telecom, Russ decided to follow his passion for audio and enrolled on a Sound Engineering course at Sandwell College.

The course was predominantly studio-based, with Yamaha O2Rs in two studios and an SSL in the main room. Studying during the day and working at night as house engineer, Russ gained a wealth of valuable experience in a 300 capacity venue. With a plethora of metal/punk bands using the in-house GL3300 and Martin Rig, Russ had his hands full trying to get four bands organized, sound checked and on stage. Those organisational skills would form the basis and understanding of touring and turning the chaos into an enjoyable experience for the audience.

Close to the roots of his passion, Russ continued playing in a band and was recording as often as possible with the recording studio he had set up. Working at SSE gave Russ the unique opportunity to experiment with a wide range of audio equipment by always listening and learning until things sounded right. During this time Russ transitioned over to mixing more than playing as his talents became more in demand. After hearing Big Mick (Metallica) mix Blaze Baily and the incredible sound he achieved, Russ was set on the idea of mixing as a career. Recommended by Big Mick, Russ started working as a freelance for SSE and eventually moved to full time working on festivals as a systems engineer gaining experience on Heritage, XL3, XL4 and radio systems.

Working for the next few years with the Midas Heritage 3K and a Nexo Alpha Rig, Russ specialised in Rock bands and was lucky to work with the Alkaline Trio, Distillers and Machine Head. This experience led to his first FOH job on Rooster which to this day Russ remembers fondly as it led to multiple tours with the Kooks (a position that had been previously difficult to fill for any length of time).

Working with Zemfira led to a considerable length of time in the studio.  Recordings were done with a Russian cable broadcasters using DN9696 recorders and a Midas PRO6.

More recently Russ has mixed Plan B, Reef, Peace and The Wombats. For the past few years Russ has been regularly touring with the Indie Rock Band: Catfish and the Bottlemen.

“As with any band when I get the choice, I run the pro series consoles. And back in the day, my first choice would have always been an XL4/ Heritage 3000. It’s just a sound that suits me. Make it light up all over the place and away you go!"
