This paper presents the strategies the authors have developed as performers and computer-music composers in the Montreal-based contemporary jazz ensemble [iks] in order to adapt an ideal studio setup for improvised mixed music into a sturdy tour-ready setup. Considerations of virtuosity on simple interfaces to digital signal processing are raised, and foreseen touring problems and their hypothetical solutions are explained, grouped around the DSP devices, the audio routing and the sound check strategies. Suggestions are made to address portability, adaptability and efficiency concerns without compromising the ensemble's own sound.
