Thread for you showing off getting into the press! Deadtree or modern media.

Good or less so!

I will start with this one!

Hard to tell which one, neither of you is going to be winning a slimmers world beauty contest anytime soon...

Trolling aside, they almost disappear in the assembly halls: I trust they sounded bigger than they looked.

I have the shorter hair, and the Knipex wire cutters in my pocket!

They were just about perfect for that Assembly Hall (Walthamstow). Top 2 boxes of each stack were aimed up to give coverage on balcony, with lower 4 of ground stack aimed at "stalls". Little bit of spoken word from magician/compere, some awards, and then musical stings and background music. About 800 peeps all told. Fairly straightforward, TBH.

I have finally used it in anger for a live act, one sub and 3 elements on winch pole a side, for a 300 capacity gig. For this chap https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Sethi

Needed loud dominant vocal, with keys/midi triggered laptop, harmonium, tablas, electric and acoustic guitar in the mix. Worked very well! Big tablas have surprising amount of low end and kick to them!

To claim it is a line array, with only six or three boxes a side, is clearly bollox, but treated as a useful array of point sources, gets nice sound to punters, at reasonable high SPL.

I'll bet that made life easier.
What was the usual approach for covering the balcony before you got the new kit, flying or satellites?

You could at least have appeared to be bloody happy about it, did they take the photos after the 12 inch line array thread on here or what?

Somehow, people keep asking me to chat codshite at them...

I wish Outlook / Dimensions would actually upload some of their Sound Studio / Knowledge Arena talks, there've been some belters over the years and I've been fortunate enough to share a stage with proper sound people like Mr Mogale, Mark Iration, Channel One, all sorts to talk about our place in 'soundsystem culture'

What's the fun in doing production if you don't get to talk about it, 24/7, much to the upset of your loved ones?

Just a couple of delays, so too much cable to be lazy...

Ta, I try to be as honest as possible about these things. Slagging off other products gets you nowhere fast. Anyway, I can save that approach until I’m old and grey and sell HiFi tackle to audiophiles.
The attack mag article is a good laugh, had a lot of fun talking to Greg for that one.

The trick is to always make the images of the gig or of the kit, it’s way more photogenic!
