Live mixer extraordinaire Buford Jones (far right) hosts a lively panel discussion at Mix Nashville 2009.
THIS WAS A TOUGH YEAR FOR MIDDLE TENNESSEE. And it was especially hard on Soundcheck, Nashvilleâ€™s premiere live sound showcase for tour rehearsals, with off-the-road storage for instruments and backline for major tours, and on-site offices for leading companies such as Meyer Sound, Shure, Digital Console Rentals, Fender, Peavey, Tour Supply Inc., and others. And back in mid-May, when the once-in-a-century rains caused the Cumberland River to rise well over its flood stages, Soundcheck was at ground zero, and in a matter of hours was completely submerged. We had planned to host our sister publicationâ€™s annual Mix Nashville live sound and recording series just days later, and postponed the event until September 13 and 14, 2010. more
