Clay Paky Sharpy Fixtures Rock in New Lighting Rig for Paul McCartney with grandMA Control

When it came time for rock legend Paul McCartney to acquire a new lighting rig for his many appearances from coast to coast, lighting designer Roy Bennett selected an array of Clay Paky Sharpy fixtures controlled by a grandMA console. Both product lines are represented in North America by A.C.T Lighting.

Bennett has been working with McCartney on a series of one-off concerts for the last four years, including the former Beatle’s opening of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California in 2009. “We had a rig that we traveled with, that we continually used for shows,” he says. “After all that time I wanted a new rig, and we had a couple of weeks of production time so I redesigned the rig to be really clean and efficient – something that was easy for production to deal with but that also had a lot of more

Mastering engineer Miles Showell comments, “Transparency is particularly important with loudness. I don’t think we’re mastering any louder than we used to.
