What happened at Coachella on Friday?
« on: April 15, 2017, 12:29:15 pm »

Apparently, there was failure of FOH at the Radiohead show at Coachella on Friday (April 14th). Anybody know what happened?

I'm always interested in "lessons learned" after such things, because they are everyone's nightmare.

What I read (no idea if it is true or not) was that the console went down.

At 46 seconds in on this video of the event you can hear what has been described elsewhere as the "bloop!" of the band's Avid S6L having a DSP error and shutting down. 26 seconds later audio is restored. I don't know enough about the S6L to know if this is a valid possibility.

If the S6L is anything like the previous consoles there will likely be no audio dropped if there was an error.

Have had many errors on avid desks including a DSP card freaking out and the entire desk becoming unresponsive but audio still passed.

As seen on the facebook.  Apparently the lesson is to pay attention to the warnings from your console.

Oops - sounds like someone is in big trouble....

Just curious, what would be the nature of the warnings?
Error messages perhaps?
Thanks

Like any computer the desk has error log output.  The AVB card connects digital signals to the console.  The errors could have been framing or bit errors on the link or other hardware related things like bus or memory issues.

I would HOPE it's in the form of error messages. "Caution, something's whack with AVB Card #Whatever; you should fix it, RTFN."

One would hope.  I mix on an SC-48 with an AVB remote stagebox regularly.   There is absolutely no on screen indication of a primary or secondary link failure.
