02. Interview with Live Sound Engineer, Jose Ortega

Jose Ortega has been in love with Live Sound since he first stepped out of the studio and onto a stage.

In fact, the challenges are what make the madness such a great experience!
Using the Roland M5000 made a huge difference to his experience of the less-than-ideal PA he was stuck with.
