The end of April took work across the pond to London, England for the annual Hillsong womens conference, Colour 2015. Wigwam provided all things audio for the rehearsal period and event held at Wembley Arena. The PA for the event consisted of 16 D&B J8’s (2 x J12 cab 15,16) complimented by a flown sub array of 8 J-Subs per side. The sides of the arena were covered by a hang of 12 J8’s per side. In addition, there were 6 V- subs placed on the floor, 2 per down stage section and 2 at the thrust, all underneath the stage. The rest of the coverage gaps were covered with Q10 front fill and Q7 outfill.
The 96 inputs from stage (and various other positions) were handled by an all encompassing Digico network with an SD10 handling the bulk of the work at FOH, accompanied by an SD8. The stage was handled by 2 SD10’s…the workload distributed amongst band and vocal outputs on stage.
On return to Nashville, Crosspoint Church embarked on their first studio recording project with a 4 song EP. We tracked at Black River Sound Stage in the ‘Front’ studio with the 80 input SSL 9000J over two days in a full band tracking setup. Currently the project is in overdub mode at The Chapel with mixing to start in the next few weeks at my residence. Its shaping up nicely!
Next, its off to Sydney, Australia for Hillsong Conference 2015.
