Mike Howe is Lighting Designer for Heavy Metal band Mastodon. Mastodon, out of Atlanta Georgia, certainly know how to put on a great show for their faithful fans - Rolling Stone once referred to them as the "greatest metal band of their generation".
Mike has been using a ChamSys MagicQ MQ100 Pro and Execute Wing on their North American Headline tour controlling a lighting rig including DL2’s, Elation Design Spot 1200C’s, Martin Mac 301’s, Thomas PixelLine 1044s.
Mike finds it real easy to use - "The built in pixel mapping allows me to create my own effects easily. Media thumbnails are great. It reduces programming time significantly."
Mike also does a lot of shows where he needs to clone or morph the House rig together with his touring rig. He says "Clone and Morph are Flawless. Keep up the good work."
