    FOH Engineer Larry Sanchez Mixes Poncho Sanchez with QSC TouchMix-30 Pro

    Costa Mesa, CA (October 23, 2019) — [Es] — FOH Engineer Larry Sanchez can still remember being thrown into the lion’s den, decades ago, mixing his very first gig at front-of-house standing behind an aircraft carrier-sized analog console. Fast forward to today and Sanchez can typically be found behind his QSC TouchMix-30 PRO compact digital mixer. Sanchez has mixed on nearly every brand and type of live console, for the last 30-plus years working almost exclusively as FOH engineer for Poncho Sanchez (no relation), the Los Angeles-based GRAMMY Award-winning band leader and conguero (conga player). But as the 67-year-old band leader has cut back on his busy touring schedule, says Sanchez, he started to open himself up to freelance work — and went looking for a mixing console to help book gigs. TouchMix was his top choice, says Sanchez. “I was already a fan. A friend of…
