JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays And Sound Image Drive Clapton/Winwood North American Tour

Two of rock’s most legendary British performers, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, recently reunited to tour North America. Premier rental firm Sound Image supplied JBL VERTEC® line arrays powered by Crown amplifiers to ensure adequate output power, fidelity and coverage for the high-profile project. Industry veteran and Clapton’s longtime live sound engineer Robert Collins handled mixing duties at front of house.

A sell-out reunion date at New York’s Madison Square Garden last year paved the way for the 2009 “Two Legends, One Live Experience? tour, which spanned 14 cities in 20 days, beginning at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey and culminating at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The nightly set list included several songs from the classic 1969 album Blind Faith, which Clapton and Winwood recorded with bandmates Ginger Baker and Rick Grech.

ianstynes_brittmyers.JPGNEW YORK, NEW YORK – JULY 2009: Since opening Great City Productions in the Chelsea district of Manhattan in 2003, owner Britt Myers is constantly busy. Myers and Ian Stynes split – or rather double up – the role of chief engineer and tackle projects that range from indie rock records to TV spots with the support of an accomplished team of freelance engineers and composers. Until recently, Myers felt obligated, not only to work through the weekend but, to burn precious time testing mixes on every sound system he could get his hands on. But with the purchase of two Klein + Hummel 5.1 active monitoring systems, which translate beautifully, Myers has reduced his stress level. more

Audience Engaged By Soundcraft Vi4™ While ‘Waiting For Godot’

To keep the dialogue intimate for this production of the stage classic, all the components of the sound system had to be invisible, and the Vi4’s ultra-quiet operation assured success.

NEW YORK, New York – The recent revival of the stage classic ‘Waiting For Godot’ was as brief as the play itself is famously cryptic, running only from April 3 through July 12. But in that time, the production won widespread critical acclaim and garnered Tony Award®, Drama Desk Award® and Outer Critics Circle Award® nominations for Best Revival of a Play for the as well as Tony Award nominations for Best Featured Actor, Best Costume Design, and for three of four of its cast members: two-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane, Tony Award winner Bill Irwin and Tony Award winner John Glover, who joined Golden Globe winner John Goodman to round out the sparse but powerful production. The play is intensely intimate and dialogue-driven, making the quality of the audio critical to its success. That quality was assured by the 48-input Soundcraft Vi4™ digital live mixing console that was installed in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s Studio 54 venue. The latest addition to Soundcraft’s highly successful Vi Series of digital live sound consoles, the Vi4’s compact frame offers tremendous processing power, amazing sound quality and, so crucially for ‘Waiting For Godot,’ incredibly quiet operation. more
