Playing SXSW is a big deal for any band, but if you’ve traveled thousands of miles from another continent, the pressure is only heightened. To give the artists playing the British Music Embassy Showcase at SXSW one less thing to worry about, Cato Music, the production company for the BME, deployed an in-depth audio system that centered around Allen & Heath dLive digital mixers inside the Latitude 30 club.
Crossroads offers live music Thursday through Sunday with dancing on a traditional wooden dance floor and regular appearances by local and national touring acts. To support its live music, Crossroads recently upgraded its audio system with an Allen & Heath GLD-80 Chrome Edition digital mixer with an AR2412 AudioRack and AR84 Expander.
Jefferson College, located in Hillsboro, Missouri, recently upgraded its sound reinforcement systems with Dante-enabled amplifiers in two locations on campus: its 2,500-seat field house and its 300-seat theatre. The field house is used to host sports events and large assemblies. The theatre, on the other hand, is used for drama, dance and music performances.
Apart from regular Sunday services, High Kirk Presbyterian Church in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, is used as a venue for worship events, many of which are aimed at a young audience, and which are technically more challenging. In the past this often meant abandoning the “house” PA system and bringing in an alternative one. Much to the delight of the in-house tech team, that has become a thing of the past.
