Live Sound for Bands
The main system used is the industry standard NEXO PS, which looks smart and compact but easily covers audiences of 300 with an enjoyable clean sound. The fact that the front of house rack contains an SPL DE-Esser speaks volumes for the clarity and punch of these speakers - and perhaps also attention to detail? ☺
The analogue Midas desks sound great. I've converted
them to run with the direct outs pre-fade and pre-eq, so if you would like a multi track recording of your concert this can be arranged.
