Cavalia, the traveling equestrian spectacular from Canada, recently upgraded its audio setup to an all-digital signal path. The show, which takes place in a 10-story tent, is now using a Yamaha DM2000 at FOH and a PM5D at monitors. An Aviom A-16D Pro system supplies headphone feeds to the musicians and other cast members. Twin V-DOSC line arrays are hidden behind large columns in the center of the arena. Sound designer and chief audio engineer Michel Therrien has found that the digital gear is more reliable in extreme operating conditions. Cavalia has special considerations because of the amount of dust generated by the boisterous show, which features horses and a troupe of acrobats, trick riders and performers, along with an eight-piece band.
