V&P Sound Heats Up Lamb of God Concert In India With HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays With V5 Presets

V&P Sound recently provided a JBL VERTEC line array system for Lamb of God’s performance in Bengaluru.

NORTHRIDGE, California – Rapidly gaining the reputation as the ‘Metal Capital of India,’ Bengaluru has hosted some of the world’s most popular bands, including Lamb of God’s second appearance in the country. A stunning sound and lighting system highlighted the performance, featuring HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® line arrays, loaded with V5 DSP presets.

The JBL VERTEC line arrays, deployed by V&P Sound of India, supported the massive sound output required for the concert. The use of V5 tunings during this concert is one of the largest in India since its introduction. The concert was held in the Clarks Exotica Resort, located in the outskirts of Bengaluru.

The Lamb of God concert was organized under the ‘Nokia Alive’ series, promoted by Overture India, a popular event management company. The 7,000-plus fans in attendance reinforced the true metal spirit of Bengaluru and the need for a powerful audio system.

The entire crowd was electrified during the hours of intense, high-performance sound, which featured an audio system of 20 JBL VT4889 fullsize line array elements and 16 VT4883 compact arrayable subwoofers for the center and mosh pit fills. Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers powered the system.

“We love the V5 presets and their performance—they offer a true sound with great magnitude,” stated Vishnu P., owner of V&P Sound. “The VT4889 has excellent long-throw capabilities and V5 offers significant improvements in horizontal coverage in the high-frequency and low-mid ranges. We also like the changes that have been made to the low frequencies with V5. Overall, we are very pleased with the performance of the system.”

Vishnu P. continued, “We are now using new V5 DSP presets and did not have to use much EQ on the system. V5 has undoubtedly given new life to our existing VERTEC system. We would like to congratulate Paul Bauman and his team for this fantastic product.”

“With sophisticated 3-stage limiting, including long-term thermal protection allowing for higher peak and RMS thresholds, the power translated into increased SPL output and rock-solid limiting. This makes the V5 presets more impactful, adding pristine clarity to the sound output” added Mallesh T., mix engineer for V&P Sound.

To provide the best microphone solutions for the stage, AKG microphones were deployed, including the AKG Drum SET II and AKG Rhythm Pack, as well as D40’s for the two separate drum kits. A portion of the concert’s acts were mixed with the Soundcraft Vi6 console at FOH.

“As a rental sound partner who has always led the way in adapting the latest technologies introduced by HARMAN, V&P Sound has created yet another yardstick for live sound in India,” said David McKinney, Senior Director- India Operations, Harman Professional.
