Preferring to control the show on the fly, Motorhead's LD Caio Bertti has been using a Sapphire Touch console from AvolitesLONDON - Preferring to control the show on the fly, Motorhead's LD Caio Bertti has been using a Sapphire Touch console from Avolites.

It gives me more freedom and I can run through the options on the songs very quickly. The new software is also very useful now that we have the foot tracking back-up mode just in case. For me, specifying the Sapphire Touch was a matter of necessity."
