Two Soundcraft MH3 mixing consoles and BSS 9088 Soundwebs are currently in-use running the audio for the Swiss National Circus—part of a 100-percent Harman Pro system installation.

Supplied by Swiss distributors Dr. W.A. Günther, the music and playback system comprises 12 JBL VerTec VT 4887 underpinned by three JBL CSR82 subs, all powered by Crown MacroTech. The vocal system and delays are carried by 10 JBL AE AC2212 powered by Crown XS, while the brace of BSS Soundweb 9088 DSP devices store the crossover and EQ gain settings as presets, and handle the signal routing.

The mixing consoles comprise a 32-channel Soundcraft MH3 multimode desk in the front-of-house position and a 24-input chassis at the stage end.

The Knie Circus stages on average 358 presentations across 240 days in 47 different towns during the course of a year. Total build time for the big top (and creation of the technical infrastructure) is five hours.
