Carlos Donohue, who has been the band's Front of House engineer for many years, is responsible for the bands ability to convey the signature sound to audiences worldwide. Carlos states, "Audix microphones allow us play at high volumes while still maintaining intelligible, high quality sound.
We rely on the OM6 for vocals - the mic is great for feedback rejection and always puts the vocals out front where they belong." Alkaline Trio's input list looks like this:
