Mix Nashville is the audio magazine’s yearly event that brings together the best gear, engineering, production and songwriting talent at SoundCheck Nashville. Every year, a large group of interns are invited to participate in the event working audio, video, traffic, registration and a host of other jobs that go into making a successful event.
Interns were trained on the Digico SD8 console used to run audio in the panel room. This year’s panelists included a group of Grammy winning/nominated engineers including Justin Niebank (Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift), Chuck Ainlay (Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, George Strait), Richard Dodd (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Neil Young) and more.
Intern John Hash summed up his experience in an email: “Just wanted to quickly thank you for giving me and my fellow CRASmates the opportunity to work the Mix Nashville event the past two days.Â I had a good time, learned some very interesting information, and also met quite a few interesting people in the span of those two days. I would welcome the opportunity to do similar things in the future.”
