āTest driveā? road show ready for cross-country trek
COSTA MESA, CAāQSC will hit the road later this month to offer hands-on demonstrations of complete, multichannel WideLine 8 and WideLine 10 line array systems, with stops scheduled in Atlanta, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Chicago. In addition, interested parties at each event will have opportunities to get behind the console in front of other systems including ILA (Installation Line Array) enclosures and HPR Series self-powered loudspeakers.
“The whole idea of this trip is to literally put these systems into the hands of people who want to find out for themselves what they can do in real world situations,” says QSC’s Brian English, who along with Jon Graves, will host and coordinate events at each stop. “There are a number of unique opportunities planned, and visiting guests will be able to test drive any combination of the loudspeakers we’ll have setup.”
The first stop on the tour will be just outside Atlanta at the Gwinnett Performing Arts Center in Duluth, GA on March 25-26. The following two events will be at the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas on April 15-16, and at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for an extended two-week stand beginning April 25th and running through May 4th on the Lagniappe Stage. During the three dark days of the festival (the 28th, 29th, and 30th), invited guests will be brought in for more personal time with the systems. At each event, guests will be able to mix on each system using a 24-track prerecorded live concert. The tourās last stop will be in Chicago on May 13-14 at an as of yet undetermined location.
Guest speakers will be part of the mix at various points along the journey with QSC founder Pat Quilter slated for some appearances, as well as Mark Engebretson, QSCās VP of R&D and chief systems architect. Those attending the demos are also eligible to register their names in a giveaway that will award the grand prize winner with a complete WideLine 8 concert rig including speakers, amps, and processing at the end of tour.
