scaled_e1299500781.jpg

Nashville, TN – March 7, 2011: The last two years have been nothing short of astonishing for Nashville-based recording artist Lady Antebellum. In 2009, the trio earned a Grammy Award for Best New Artist; this year, they picked up Best Album of the Year. While still a relatively ‘new’ artist, “Lady A” has earned an intensely loyal fan base largely because of their relentless performing and touring schedule.

FOH engineer Brett “Scoop? Blanden has been on the front line of the band’s touring operation since the beginning. He is responsible for mixing all of Lady Antebellum’s live shows, as well as handling many equipment choices including microphones, wireless audio, PA and other fundamental elements of the live rig. He uses Sennheiser 935 capsules on all of the stage vocals.

In a unique and challenging audio project, BSS Audio was chosen for sound processing at the new Glock Horse Performance Center in the Austrian town of Treffen bei Villach, in Carinthia. The school, named after its sponsor, Austrian firearms manufacturing Gaston Glock, needed the capability to provide consistent audio coverage across the facility’s four riding halls. The installation was performed by Musik-Aktiv with the assistance of Harman Professional distributor Kain Audio.

The facility deploys four Soundweb London BLU-160 devices and four BLU-BOB 8-channel output expanders, placed on the Soundweb London fault-tolerant digital audio bus. The two mobile racks are configured identically and the digital audio bus audio channels can be connected at four different points.

grandMA mingled with music royalty when lighting designer Demfis Fyssicopulos selected a grandMA console to control, lighting and video components in Prince’s Welcome 2 America engagement in the New York metropolitan area. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of grandMA in North America.

Prince played two shows at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey then moved to Madison Square Garden for three performances before and after Christmas. The in-the-round stage was shaped like his famous, unpronounceable name symbol – essentially three catwalks joined by a circle. His band played in the center of the loop.

The entire stage was outlined by Nocturne V-9 LED screens, driven through a Control Freak Systems media server with audio and MIDI control, which were treated as lighting elements. Fyssicopulos used the grandMA to control the CFS more
