The last year was a real performance and endurance test for few Looptrotter devices, it was Monster Compressor, SA2RATE and Channel Strip. Those units were a part of a live sound rack used during the Riverside’s “New Generation Tour 2013/2014” concluded in April 2014.
The tour included 100 shows in many countries all over the world, like Poland, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, UK, Ukraine, USA, Mexico, Russia, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary.
The application of Looptrotter Audio units was as follows:
- Looptrotter Monster Compressor – compressor with tube saturation on the summing bus of the band, except for the vocals.
- Looptrotter SA2RATE – on synthesizers.
- Looptrotter Channel Strip – on the upper snare mic.
Daniel Schindler – the live sound engineer for Riverside was very satisfied with all of the above devices, praising their ability to uniquely shape the live sound of the band, their excellent craftsmanship and reliability, even in the most demanding environment of a live show.
