FixIt: Kid Rock Front-of-House Engineer Steve Cross

Nov 1, 2011

[Avid ReVibe] is versatile enough for all my needs in this show. With the exception of one “effect” verb, I try to keep all the verbs for the vocals and instruments very similar in type and decay. If I move from a large hall to a plate verb, I make that change for all verbs and then tailor the times to get them to layer nicely with each other. Another plug-in I use a lot is the Crane Song Phoenix. It has a nice way of bringing things forward in a mix without simply turning them up. Other than that, there are lots of delay cues that use the Avid delay. I use channel compression where needed, but no compressor plug-ins at all. ...

New San Francisco live music venue BeatBox is the first club on the West Coast to feature Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers.

Powersoft amplifiers with integrated DSP and network accessibility serve as a front end for the system. ...

FixIt: Eighth Day Sound Systems Engineer/Crew Chief Edgardo "Verta" Vertanessian on Juanes Tour

Oct 1, 2011

Juanes is particularly big in South America, where he plays at big outdoor soccer stadiums pretty much all the time. The challenge at those locations is to have a powerful yet crystal-clear P.A. response even when many times we have to supplement what we carry with us with local P.A. add-ons. We would have mains and side arrays, maybe a 270-degree hang, flown subs, four to five main ground sub stacks, and two to six delay towers with distributed sub stacks, depending on the venue. ...
