Sapphire Touch Proves its Flexibility with Pulse Lighting

19 December 2013

“I have now used the Sapphire Touch on 3 different tours and the console has worked flawlessly!!"


Mikey Cummings, Pulse Lighting used the Sapphire Touch on Wolfgang Gartner and Tommy Trash’s Hounds of Hell Tour, Colbie Caillat and The Old Crow Medicine Show this summer controlling all Lighting ,Video and Cryo.

“The Sapphire Touch gave me an expanded control surface perfect for my improvisational needs with the reliability and functions required to program and operate a cutting edge show that relied heavily on video integration.” 

As all three acts were of different genres and Cummings required a console that offered different features for each different show

“I used many of the V7 features such as group masters, set list, pixel mapper and standard features such as fixture exchange and cue lists”

Cummings controlled a variety of intelligent fixtures which included VL3K’s, VLX’s Sharpies and an array of Robe products. He also controlled a Green Hippo server for his video output via the Sapphire Touch too.

“I have now used the Sapphire Touch on 3 different tours and the console has worked flawlessly!! On top of that Brad White from Group One as well as Teri Productions, my provider,  proved excellent training and technical support as well.”

To sum up what Cummings really enjoyed he commented “The Large Touch Screens, 45 faders, independent paging of top and bottom fader sets , seamless integration of video and lighting, Pixel Mapper and the Set list feature, I was very pleased with the console and will be using it all in 2014 for The Old Crow Medicine Show starting New Years Eve

Group One are the exclusive distributor for Avolites Ltd in the USA
