It was a pleasure to welcome two friends from Australia to the American Music Festival just gone by..
Definitely a show to go and see and check out their newest record, ‘Rumble, Shake and Tumble‘..
Its been a fantastic year of touring for Hillsong United and its been a pleasure to be able to mix FOH for all the USA dates. Mid America Sound has been a great supplier and crew to enable us to do what we do – I know all the boys are very thankful for their expertise.
We have continued with the K1 system but have added the K1 subs, flying them 8 per side behind the main arrays. The design was developed by Ricki Cook and we were fortunate to have Live Sound International attend the Grand Rapids event and ask Stephen Pippett and myself a few questions. The interview is extremely thorough regarding our setup and rather than repeat, you can look at the article here.
I have never claimed to be a video editor, so apologies in advance but I have included a video below the photos with a stage walk and a few tour specifics. Sorry for the not so steady hand!
The past week saw the Dband boys from Colorado make the trip to Nashville to record their first studio record. Producer Paul Mabury picked The Castle Recording Studios in Franklin, a supposed half way house for Al Capone back in the day. Jason Ingram and Stu G offered their support and the results were great. I can’ t wait to hear the final mixes!
Castle Recording Studios is equipped with a 64 channel SSL 4000 G+ with outboard such as Neve Pre’s, Neve 33609, API 500 series EQ, Teletronix (LA2A, 3A), Tubetech CL1B, Urei 1176, Pultec (EQP1A, EQH2) and Empirical Labs distressors to name a few. They are complimented with mics such as Neuman (U47, U67, U87, M250, M249, KM54, Fet47), B&K 4007, Royer 121, Coles 4038, and AKG 414.
