V&P Sound Rocks Bangalore Music Festival With JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays

jbl_rockethos.jpgNORTHRIDGE, California –V&P Sound Pvt. Ltd. deployed a powerful JBL VERTEC® line array system for the Rock Ethos 2009 festival, staged at the open-air Palace Grounds in Bangalore. The 2-day event, held March 14-15, featured many of India’s most popular rock and heavy metal bands, including Motherjane, Divine Connection, Bhayanak Maut, Myndsnare, Slain, and Infernal Wrath. Designed to promote original music while raising anti-piracy awareness, the event was produced by Buenos Entertainment, one of the most successful event management companies in India.

“Rock Ethos is one of the largest outdoor rock festivals in southern India,? noted Vishnu P., Owner of V&P Sound. “Over 20 of India’s best rock/metal bands were on stage for this event, giving us a real opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of the system to artists in this musical genre. Our Crown-powered JBL VERTEC system proved its ability to deliver high fidelity, maximum-level output power and large-area coverage abilities, despite the dual environmental challenges of scorching sun and seasonal rains.?
V&P Sound set up two main arrays, totaling 20 JBL VERTEC full-size VT4889 line array elements, in left/right hangs with10 boxes per side. Eight JBL VERTEC VT4880A full size arrayable subwoofers were suspended in 4-per-side hangs, while an additional eight JBL subwoofers were also stacked 4-per-side below the VT4880A’s. JBL VRX932LA compact constant-curvature speakers were used as center-fills. A combination of Crown I-Tech 4000, 6000 and 8000 amplifiers powered the entire system, which was set up using Harman HiQnet™ System Architect™. Crown I-Tech amps also powered the onstage monitor system, which included VRX932LA arrays with VRX918S subwoofers for side fills. Crown I-Tech 4000 amps powered JBL VRX915M floor monitors. “The processing for the bi-amped wedges was done using the Crown I-Tech’s built-in DSP,? noted Vishnu P. “The stage monitors sounded fantastic.?

At the front-of-house mix position, V&P Sound used a Soundcraft MH3 48-channel console, while a Soundcraft MH2 handled onstage monitor mixing. Additionally, dbx 1066 and BSS DPR 402/522 noisegates and compressors were in use. Microphones for the event included AKG’s WMS 4000 wireless system for vocals, along with AKG’s Drum Set II, which includes a D112 and four C418M’s, used to mic all drum kits on the show. Two AKG C451B’s served as drum kit overhead microphones.

“Managing the comprehensive needs for high-SPL, multi-act outdoor festivals requires complete focus and real expertise in the field application of concert-quality sound systems,? noted David Scheirman, Vice President, Tour Sound, JBL Professional. “Effective results require not only the right equipment, but the right skills. With this year’s Rock Ethos event, V&P Sound has once again demonstrated the company’s strong capabilities in this area.?
