MUSICIANS ON MICHAEL BUBLÉ TOUR ARE “CRAZY” ABOUT AVIOM’S PERSONAL MIXERS

Brass Section on “Crazy Love” Tour Achieves Desired Mixes with Aviom

MONTREAL, CANADA, NOVEMBER 8, 2010 — Musicians and audio crew members on Michael Bublé’s “Crazy Love” tour are “crazy” about Aviom’s Personal Mixers. Used as part of the monitoring setup for the brass section, the personal mixers offer crew members the ease of configuration they require while providing musicians with a customized monitor mix.

With stops across the globe in a variety of different venues and Bublé performing along with a big band, the “Crazy Love” tour poses some audio challenges. The brass players have the most cues of all the musicians on the tour, making proper monitoring critical to a stellar performance. “Ease of setup and tear down were key factors when selecting gear for the Michael Bublé ‘Crazy Love’ tour,” explains Louis-Philippe Maziade, projects manager, sound department for Solotech, the Canadian production company handling the equipment and crew for the tour. “The Aviom personal mixing system sounds good and its ability to easily retain and recall presets for mixes on a daily basis is a plus. Now all the members of the brass section are able to achieve their desired mix directly at their fingertips and recall that customized mix for every show with minimal effort.”

The Aviom personal mixers also reduce the workload for the monitor mixer handling mixes for the big band. “Being a one-man monitor mixer, taking care of a 13-piece band plus Michael, is a challenging task to say the least,” says Craig Brittain, monitor mixer for Michael Bublé. “Aviom helps to take a little weight off of my shoulders by allowing our brass section to mix their own IEMs. My own research and product testing, along with comments from industry coworkers, helped me decide that Aviom was the right choice for the ‘Crazy Love’ tour. Also, the durability of Aviom is important. I have had to do very little repairs to my setup over the three years I have been using the products.”

The monitoring setup for the tour is a multiple station system comprised of eight Aviom A-16II personal mixers. An A16-D A-Net® Distributor, which is fed directly from a DiGiCo SD7 equipped with a D-16c A-Net Card, supplies signals and power to each personal mixing station. All of the musicians use molded in-ear monitors from Westone.

Aviom pioneered personal mixing with its Pro16® Monitor Mixing System and continues to break new ground with the revolutionary Pro64® Series of audio networking products. With tens of thousands of products in the field today, Aviom has set the standard for high performance, scalable digital solutions. All Aviom systems harness the power of A-Net®, Aviom’s innovative digital audio technology that simplifies system design while enhancing flexibility and fidelity. All Aviom products are designed, tested, and manufactured in the USA.
